I just re-redded (and coppered and blonded) my hair yesterday, and upon arriving at the salon, I sat next to a pile of magazines to flip through.
On top of the pile was a picture of a hunky dude wearing no shirt and being generally hot (and I’ll assume photoshopped – hehe). At the bottom of the pile, I could see a Canadian Living Magazine with a DELICIOUS looking burger. Which magazine do you think I dove for? Right past all the shirtless dudes? That’s right. These days, the burger will win EVERY time. My how I’ve changed.
On to the food!
I’m happy to announce that todays blog post is of something my Mom made! yay! guest recipe!
I’m in BC right now, warming up for this weekends start of the tour in Sechelt (pun SERIOUSLY intended – it is HOT here) and on the way to the weekend, there is a nice window for making and eating delicious foods.
My mom and I were watching the Food Network – as we are wont to do – and came across the show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
Guy Fieri (my boyfriends FAVOURITE Food Network person) visited this amaaaazing looking Cuban restaurant, and both my mom and I were equally inspired. So, first up, Pulled Pork. (I am going to very soon do up a recipe for Picadillo – a Cuban dish with ground beef, olives, capers, lots of spices and a lovely looking sauce.. mmm…)
So, here you go! It was surprisingly simple (just ask my mom) and stupidly delicious!
Pulled Pork Sandwiches
- Pork Loin – 4lbs – bone-in
- Apple Juice – 1 cup
- Red Onion – 1, chopped
- Garlic – one head
- Spices – we used Hy’s Cajun Seasoning (DELICIOUS)
- Yellow and Red Peppers
- Bun or Pita
- Coleslaw – I just used the shredded cabbage with no sauce
- BBQ Sauce – whichever you like
Chop onions and garlic and lay at the bottom of your dutch oven – these act as a sort of rack for the pork. Rub pork with spices of your choosing.
Lay pork on top of onion-rack, and pour in apple juice.
Until next time,
*Note: here are the tour dates for this summers BC tour! – hope to see you at the shows if you can make it out – I am SUPER excited for all the shows, and am realizing that this will be my first non-Christmas hometown show in YEARS – woot woot!
