Suite Meal 6 : My Shredded Pork Meals

I made shredded pork on Monday and it has made me meals since. That is what happens when you shred 8lbs of pork. Anyway, I came up with a different meal to serve with the pulled pork the last three nights. I thought I would share it with my great friends.

My Pulled Pork:

8-10lb pork shoulder
5 spicy sausage links, sliced thin

The rub
1/4 cp. ancho chili powder
2 Tsp garlic powder
2 Tsp cumin
2 Tsp Seasoned Salt
1 tsp black pepper

1 Tb. oil (if needed)
1 lg. red onion
2 jalapenos
8 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 cps. chicken broth
5 TB White vinegar
Hot sauce- to taste

1. Rub the pork with the rub! (Mix the seasonings). Sear on both sides on Med-High heat for 3-5 min on each side. When Browned on all sides, then remove.
2. Add onions, jalapenos, garlic to the pan. If you do not have enough grease from the pork then add some oil. Scratch the brown bits. Turn heat down and cook until soft. Add the chicken broth and put the pork back into the pan.
3. Cook on low for hours until shreds apart. When it shreds apart add the white vinegar and hot sauce. (My husband likes it spicy so I add a good bit.)

First night, I made pulled pork and sausage with spicy rice. The second night, I made pulled pork sandwich. Tonight, I made pulled pork pizza. Wow. It got better each night. I used the pizza crust from below. It was my second batch. That crust is by far the best ever. It paired perfect with the pulled pork pizza.
