Is there anything better than pulled pork? Well, yeah. I can think of a few things. BUT - pork shoulder is about as cheap as meat gets. Here in LA I rarely pay more than $1.30/lb; 99 cents/lb is common. And it's versatile:

I haven't made a pulled pork sandwich in ages. My go-to mode of consumption - tacos. Homemade corn tortillas, some pico de gallo salsa, maybe a little cheese & avocado... fast, cheap & tough to beat.

Yesterday I used pulled pork in an asian style noodle soup - some stock flavored with star anise, cinnamon, ginger & fish sauce; rice noodles, cilantro, green onion, jalapeno, bean sprouts, chinese broccoli & pulled pork. Out of this world.

Today, pasta sauce - sauteed some garlic, cumin & chipotle in olive oil, added peeled/seeded/chopped tomatoes, stirred in some cilantro at the end with the pulled pork. On fresh fettucine with pecorino romano cheese.

Haven't done this lately, but it also makes fantastic enchiladas.

Oh, & it makes a pretty good sammie too.

Anybody else have something neat to do with pulled pork?

Ooh, from the PP-waffle thread above - PP pot pie. May have to give that a try. And think of the fun kids would have with it: PPPP, made from butt...

PP empanadas

PP, green chiles, sharp cheddar and what ever else sounds good at the moment. flatten out a Grands biscuit stuff it with the mix, fold it in half and seal the edge. poke a small steam hole in the middle and bake until golden brown. i like them with a little salsa or BBQ sauce to dunk them in on the side.


these are as addictive as ABT's Shocked

PP in puff pastry.

Empanadas sound great. Tamales would work too.

Ravioli stuffing.

I have used pp in a fatty zysmith. I use pulled pork in my 3 meat chili. I also have used it in baked pasta, pulled pork alfredo, omelets, and even made pulled pork benedict.
