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 sandwich.

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 chilies.


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 other.  

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.

Was tasty!

Let me know what you think of this recipe in the comments.
