Do you remember as a kid waking up to the smell of food cooking? How it made you feel all warm inside? Likely your mother was up at the crack of dawn preparing breakfast full of yummy goodness of things like eggs, bacon, sausage, toast with jam, or honey, and fruit. That’s what we woke up to this morning.
Before retiring last night, Deann set up the crock pot and set to cooking a pork shoulder that I picked up at Goodness Me in Waterdown, Ontario over the weekend. Always nice to find great pieces of meat on sale! The pot and pork were prepped, and into its bathtub the shoulder went to hang out over night, enjoying itself!
This morning we woke up, and could smell the pork everywhere in our house, and even the neighbors were asking about the incredible aroma emanating from our kitchen. I will have to ask Dee to post her recipe for her Crock Pot Pulled Pork.
The pork was tender enough that it fell apart. She added her new favorite, Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar and some other spices and it was all ready for packing up for the week.
Honestly, it’s one of the best tastes in the world. What makes it even better, is that this $7.00 piece of meat will feed the family for a couple of days (lunch and dinner).
So what to do with it? For most people they would add some of this delicious pulled pork and drop it between a bun, or a couple slices of bread. Add some BBQ sauce, and be giddy for the next 10 minutes or so. Others will put it on a pizza. When i was younger, even made Pulled Pork Lasagna!
For Dee and I, we eat it without the bread products, instead will adding it to a salad, or served with a mix of veggies and fruit. Even go so far as to make our own buns made with Coconut, and almond flour.
I could eat this stuff all by itself. Though not Paleo per se, I personally like to put Franks BBQ Sauce on mine. Fruity heat to go with fruity meat.
Tonight, we’re going to to use our new pressure cooker to make bone broth…and likely in a day or two, turn that into a paleo version of Pho!!
