Stage One: Porky Breakdown
Everyone should, on a semi-regular basis, have a giant hunk of carcass on their counter to break down themselves. I think it gives a greater appreciation for the food, plus it is just plain fun.
My pork butt was semi-frozen for ease of butchering and purchased in a two pack from Sam's Club. $1.68 is hard to beat for meat, so I am working on more ways to use this stuff. (Can you say tamales?)
Stage Two: Slow Cooker Love
My porkiness is now tucked neatly into bed and kept warm with its own personal heater and cumin and oregano aromatherapy. Its like a sauna for dead animal! A sauna that lasts 6-8 hours on low.
Stage Three: Photo Op, then Break for Lunch
(Oh, and I apologize for the wealth of contradicting fanatsys. I am high on pig.)
Topped with some BBQ sauce and shredded cheddar, this was a truly delicious low carb dinner! The bread's flavor did not dominate the pork. It was JUST bland enough to complement without dragging it down, and it was strong enough to wrangle the filling, even better than a tortilla. I am looking forward to my stomach making some room so I can eat more!
I also made homemade baked beans (bacon, NOM!), and obviously Oopsie bread. I have pictures of that, eventually I will do a post on them!
