Untie pork butt if necessary; then butterfly (slit at center and spread out flat) to make a 1 1/2 inch-thick steak.
With a knife, score meat in a criss cross pattern, making cuts about 1/2 inch deep and 1 1/2 inches apart.
Place meat in a large heavy-duty plastic bag.
In a bowl, stir together onion, pimentos, garlic, parsley, vinegar, oil, and pepper.
Pour mixture over meat in bag.
Seal bag securely; rotate to distribute marinade.
Place in a shallow baking pan; refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until next day, turning bag over several times.
