Perfect Pulled Pork - Slow Roasted, Seasoned & Sa-vor-y!!!
Remember last week when we were talking about company recipes? This is one of those recipes. I’ll never forget the first time I had this *perfect* pulled pork. I was a guest in someone’s home and this was their company recipe. This pulled pork is SO yummy and flavorful and tender, it just melts in your mouth. Let’s pick out the perfect pork shoulder for your perfect pulled pork. Make sure your pork shoulder has a layer of fat on the bottom: And it should also have a bone going about halfway through it. Now, if you notice, my pork shoulder is 7.91 lbs. After you pick out your perfect pork shoulder, you may want to pick up a few other items while you’re out.. You’ll need a 3″ deep roasting pan that’s big enough to hold your pork shoulder so that there is at least 1″ of extra room on all sides. So! Dry Rub 1 tbsp ground cumin 1 tbsp garlic powder 1 tbsp onion powder 1 tbsp chili powder 1 tbsp cayenne pepper 1 tbsp salt 1 tbsp ground pepper 1 tbsp paprika 1/2 cup brown sugar Brine Solution Related:  SANDWICHES

Oven Roasted Potatoes When I heard this month’s Kitchen Bootcamp Challenge was potatoes, I was pumped. Originally, I had great plans for the sweet potatoes still in my basement from last fall, but after researching and chatting with the hubby, I decided to go with Yukon Gold potatoes instead. My husband isn’t a huge fan of sweet potatoes and I wanted to make something he would enjoy too, so that’s how I settled on this oven roasted potato recipe. Yukon Golds are our favorite potato to grow in the garden and they absolutely melt in your mouth when freshly dug from the garden. I did some more searching through The Professional Chef and on the web and actually settled on a recipe from Don’t get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with the flavor, just a personal preference as far as how potato-coated my hands were when I was done.

recipe detail This recipe is adapted from Bruce Aidells' "Complete Book of Pork." It creates a rich, aromatic crust in the style of a large celebratory roast. The pan drippings can be made into gravy as per the accompanying Fresh Pork Leg Roast With Herb Gravy, but substitute unsalted beef stock or broth for the low-sodium broth to compensate for the extra salt coming from the crust, and be sure to strain the pan drippings to avoid over-seasoning. To make rub: Put all the ingredients for the rub in the bowl of a food processor and process for 30 seconds. To make pork: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Set the roast in a shallow roasting pan, fat side up. When the roast has finished resting, transfer it to a cutting board.

Cinnamon Toast Rolls - Circle B Kitchen The USDA released its new food pyramid the other day (which is actually a plate now instead of a pyramid), and I am sorely disappointed to report that cinnamon rolls did not appear anywhere on that plate. I think by now most of us know what should be on our dinner plate in terms of healthy, well-rounded nutrient-laden meals, but it is my considered opinion that our breakfast plate should include cinnamon rolls now and then. And not just any cinnamon roll, mind you, but how ‘bout a homemade cinnamon roll hybrid that is a cross between a cinnamon roll and cinnamon toast, is super easy to make and gosh darn delicious. In honor of their ancestry, I call these little gems cinnamon toast rolls, and here’s all you need to make them… Yep. Trim the crusts off of the bread Roll the bread really flat Brush both sides of the bread with butter Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar Roll in any fashion you like (I’ve also folded them into little triangles) Cinnamon Toast Rolls Click here for a printable recipe
