The royal pig gives us some of my most beloved meats... BACON, pork tenderloin, pork chops, pulled pork, ham, pork belly, PANCETTA, crispy pig skin (yeah I said it!) the list goes on and on.
So when I slow cooked 4 lbs of heavenly pork shoulder on Sunday I had no fears that any of it would go to waste!
That doesn't mean I planned on eating the same pulled pork with salad all week. The key to stretching $7 worth of meat is to vary what and how you serve it. Variety is the spice of life people!
Pulled pork isn't just for lunch or dinner! This yummy meat is the perfect addition to omelets or even hash. It is already cooked so you can throw it in quickly and have bfast in a matter of minutes!
|Even the panda is eyeing my breakfast!|
Pulled pork with wilted collard greens and oven roasted potatoes (thanks to brother-in-law for the potatoes!)
|Place the pork over raw collard greens dressed w/ a little olive oil. The greens will wilt perfectly when you reheat at lunch.|
|Add a bit of fresh salsa for spice and fresh zing to every bite|
|Pulled pork right from the oven with a side salad|
|10 minute miso pulled pork soup|
This was so easy, spicy and yummy! Boil a few cups of water. Once boiled turn off heat and add in a few tablespoons of miso paste to dissolve. Once mixed, add in noodles, dried wakame, ginger, diced scallions and shredded pork. I also added a small spoon of Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce to add a kick. Go easy with this if you are new to it. It gets really spicy, very quickly!!!
