    Re: Need Pork Recipes

    This is a varriation of the one FatCat posted. It was sent to me last summer by a friend (a chef).

    For Frank the Farrier and anyone else who is brave enough to trust my modification of this "borrowed" recipe from Mrs. Red and White Plaid:


    Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Root Beer Sauce:

    Mrs. Red and White Plaid suggests doing these steps, but I typically skip them because I'm usually in a hurry:
    - Trim fat from a 2 1/2 - to 3-pound pork roast
    - Cut meat to fit into a 3 1/2- to 5-quart slow cooker
    - Sprinkle meet with 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
    - Brown on all sides in 1 T cooking oil
    - Drain fat

    Here's where I kind of start Mrs. Red and White Plaid's recipe:
    - Transfer meat to slow cooker
    - Add 2 medium onions, cut into thin wedges
    - Add 1 cup of root beer (NOT DIET)
    - Add 2 T minced garlic (If you like garlic like I do, cut-up 4 big fresh cloves...or more)
    - Cover and cook on low-heat for 8-10 hours or high-heat for 4-5 (I cooked for 7 hrs and it came out fine)

    For sauce (This is where I deviate from Mrs. Red and White Plaid):

    In Sauce Pan, combine:
    - 3 cups root beer (NOT DIET)
    - 1 cup of your favorite store-purchased or home-made BBQ sauce
    - 1/3 cup chopped onions (strain them out later)
    - 1-2 T hot sauce (or not, if you don't like spicy)
    Boil gently about 30 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 2 cups.

    Making the sandwiches:
    - When meat is done, transfer to cutting board or oven safe plate/bowl
    - Use a couple of big forks to pull meat apart into shreds
    - Mix some of the sauce with the meat so that the meat slightly sticks to itself.
    - Keep warm
    - Prepare fixings (Tomato, lettuce, onion, etc. or just make a salad, maybe some baked beans).
    - Toast the hamburger buns.
    - Spoon shredded pork on toasted hamburger bun.
    - Poor some of your favorite BBQ sauce on top.
    - Add sliced fixings
    - You can also dip the sandwiches in the sauce as your eating them if you wish.

    Re: Need Pork Recipes

    I just tried out a bomber rootbeer pork recipe last weekend. So, so good...

    Ingredients:

    3 cups root beer (NOT diet)
    2 lbs. pork shoulder
    1 12 oz. bottle chilli sauce
    1 medium onion, thickly sliced
    5 garlic cloves, chopped
    salt, pepper
    olive oil
    Hamburger buns

    Trim as much fat as you can off the shoulder. Rub it down with salt and pepper and quickly brown it on all sides in a bit of olive oil.

    Throw the sliced onion, garlic, 1 cup root beer, and the pork in a crock pot and let it cook for 8-10 hours.

    1 hour prior to the meat being done, stir in 2 cups root beer and 1 12 oz. bottle of chilli sauce in a pot and reduce to about 2 cups.

    Pull the pork apart with two forks and mix the meat in with your reduced sauce. Pile it onto the buns with a little lettuce and tomato and you are set for grub-down! [smiley=chowtime.gif]

    Re: Need Pork Recipes

    Pork tacos are the best. Take a pork shoulder put it in the crock pot and add 6 cups of chicken broth. Then add one who white onion and a hand full of cilantro then 6 tablespoons of cummin. Let it cook on low all day. Take the pork out and it falls apart put it in some lightly fried corn taco shells add some tapatillo and a squeeze of lime. OH YEAH

    Re: Need Pork Recipes

    This is my personal favorite.

    A summer favorite in Estonia (Europe), originally from Georgia (x-soviet union.) My wife is from Estonia and we always include sashlyk at sauna parties or summer gatherings.

    Try it. You will not be dissappointed.

    Pork Shashlyk

    Ingredients

    3 lbs of Pork (also awsome with lamb!)
    3 onions
    2 - Bunch of green onion
    3 tomatoes and 3 cucumbers
    1/2 lemon
    1-tablespoon vinegar
    1 tablespoon butter
    1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
    1 teaspoon seasalt

    Directions

    Take pork, onions, green onion, tomatoes and cucumbers, 1/2 lemon, 1-tablespoon vinegar, 1 tablespoon butter and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Wash and cut the pork into 1" cubes, place in a large pan and add salt, pepper, sliced onions, vinegar, 1 tsp. lemon and /or lime juice (you can also add 3 shots of vodka) and mix.

    Place pan, covered, in refrigerator overnight (the longer it sits... the better.) Skewer the pork on spits, alternating them with sliced onions.

    Brown the shashlyk on hot charcoals and turn frequently for 15-20 minutes so the pork is evenly done. Before serving, place shashlyk (with or without spits) on a plate and pour melted butter and chopped green onions over Lamb. Serve with cucumbers, sliced lemons and sliced tomatoes.

    Enjoy.

    spreading their lets say by product by truck all
    over their hay field now thats bad.
