pork butt

You’ll get the name connection when you listen to the show! I love a good slow cooked pork butt! This isn’t a recipe, per se, but a guideline for some serious leftover goodness. Pig be good!

4-5 lb. pork butt, trimmed
mire poix
garlic (lots)
roasted tomatillos, jalapenos and pablanos
cinnamon stick
whole cloves
dried red chilis
red pepper flakes
fresh cilantro
water to almost cover

Cook for 6-8 hours. We eat this with apple and squash puree and a cilantro lime creme fraiche.

Once we’ve had our fill for the next 2-3 days I make soup! Sweat some onions and garlic, pull the pork and add to pot. Deglaze with a stout beer, add a little chicken or vegie stock and whatever else turns you on. This is one of those ’empty your fridge on Friday’ kind of deals. Frozen corn, green beans, some tomatoes, a few pieces of bacon…whateva! Recycled pork ~ who doesn’t love it??
