When E.J. and went shopping last Sunday, we saw that pork shoulders were on a really good sale at Kroger, and were compelled to pick one up. Smoked pulled pork is one of our favorite protein staples, but admittedly other than sandwiches (which we don’t really eat), I had a limited repertoire when it came to recipes that use pulled pork.
This week I made an effort to find new ways to used smoked pulled pork meat to keep it interesting. Here are some of the great meals we made:
- Pork stuffed sweet potatoes – I “baked” the sweet potatoes in the Instant Pot first, then split and topped them with pork, onions and Paleo-friendly BBQ Sauce. This particular use is the easiest and is great for lunches too.
- Pulled Pork & Apple Breakfast Casserole – OMG this stuff is amazing. We liked it so much, I made a double-batch twice. It’s sweet & smoky, and filling enough to tide you over all the way to lunch time. It reheats beautifully too for a fast, hectic morning.
- Pulled Pork BBQ Pizza – So, everyone has their favorite Paleo pizza crust recipe, but after trying many of them, I think Simple Mills pizza crust is the ticket. It’s easy to throw together and makes a good, solid crust that tastes great and actually supports toppings well. Our pizza was constructed with Whole30 BBQ Sauce, Pulled Pork, cooked bacon pieces, Sliced yellow onions, and cashew cheese YUMM!!
- Pulled Pork Nachos – We started with Sweet Potato chips, then topped with pork, homemade guacamole and leftover cashew cheese. You have to eat it fast because the sweet potato chips get soggy pretty quick, but it was quite tasty
