PIONEER WOMAN'S SPICY SHREDDED PORK


I have been blessed with the best.

My sweet friend, Glenda, from Louisiana sent a care package to us last month.  Just because...


Inside was the sweetest card, the most fantastic beer bread and Pioneer Woman's Cookbook.  Do you have it?  I'm a cookbook hoarder; but, I didn't have that one.  I was definitely missing out.  There are so many yummy dishes in there.   Thanks so much, Glenda!  I have made a promise to myself that I will not buy another cookbook until I start using the ones that I have and I'm beginning with this one.

The recipe that started it all off for me was the Spicy Pulled Pork.  I found the recipe online here called Spicy Shredded Pork.    The name of the recipe in the book is different; but, the recipe was the same.

So I grabbed a Pork Shoulder at the market...


And an onion, garlic cloves, Spicy Paprika and Chipotle Seasoning, Cumin Seeds, Oregano, Brown Sugar, White Wine Vinegar, Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper...


which I processed all together in my food processor and rubbed on every square inch of that pork...


Pioneer Woman added water to her baking dish; but you know me.....I can't leave well enough alone.  I thought a bottle of Dos Equis would make it even better.  I was right. We had to smell that pork cooking all day long and it smelled amazing.

 

When the pork was done, we spread some corn chips on a baking sheet, covered them with shredded pork, pinto beans, monterey jack cheese and Cabot Jalapeno Cheddar.  We baked them for 10 minutes in a 450 degree oven and when the came out, sprinkled them with chopped cilantro.  Mmmmmmm!


The perfect Sunday night dinner...

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  5. That was so sweet of her to send you this! I don't get on the computer very often because i don't have a computer..but when I do even before I post on my own blog I get on your blog and read it first. Your blog always inspires me to get out there and do things I normally wouldn't. Every time I get on I try to keep up on the posts and I noticed on one of yours you didn't really know what to write but I can tell you just from reading your everyday goings on your blog has changed my life and even if it's about absolutely nothing I love hearing from you and how you are doing. I am hoping that things are going better for you and I truly hope you have a great week!
