Left Over Pork
I created a new recipe last night.
I had left over Pulled Pork in my freezer.
I had wanted to use it in some meal.
And so, I invented my Mexican Pulled Pork
I started by making a French bread dough.
I substituted in 1/2 cup of Blue Corn meal for some of the wheat flour. I
used half Whole Wheat to about a third of White flour.
This raised while I was thawing out and mixing
my pork with seasonings.
I mixed about 1 teaspoon of Cumin, 1 teaspoon of
dried, powered garlic, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of Black pepper,
1/4-1/2 teaspoon of Chipotle pepper powder, and about 1 teaspoon of Oregano.
I mixed the seasonings. I added about 32
oz. of Pulled Pork to the mixture of seasonings. Mix.
I added a large can (7 oz.) of diced, mild green
Then I took the dough and rolled half the French
bread recipe out. I rolled it in a rectangle, just like you do for making
Caramel rolls. I rolled the dough as thin as I could.
I gently brushed Olive oil over the dough.
I did not place oil at the 1 inch edge mark of dough.
I placed the spiced Pulled Pork on dough.
I sprinkled about 8 oz. of Mexican cheese on top. I rolled the
dough/meat/cheese mixture in a tight roll. I rolled this
"hotdog" style. Meaning, I rolled from one long end to the
I connected the ends together and I placed this
on a greased cookie sheet. I gently made slash marks every 2
inches. I baked it about 35 minutes at 400 degrees F.
I served slices of this to each guest with Green
Salsa and Sour cream.
Let me know what you think of this recipe in the comments.
