Pulled Pork, Roasted Potatoes, and Kale

June 18, 2013 7:16 pm

I bought a 3.4lb pork shoulder from Pecatonica Valley Farms on Saturday, without really knowing what I was going to do with it. Fortunately, my buddies Jen & Tim also bought one, and gave me a little inspiration!

I threw that piggy butt in the crock pot with some white wine (from Wollersheim Winery, again, on Jen’s suggestion), and a chili powder, brown sugar, salt, and cumin rub and let it sit there for about 8 hours. In the end? Porky perfection.

I made a “massaged kale salad” (aka kale squished around with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper) from the kale (from our CSA farm) and roasted some yummy potatoes we got at the Westside market (from Don’s).

To top it off, we still have loads of pulled pork leftover, despite way over eating last night – I couldn’t help it! I’m dreaming of pulled pork pizzas…. pulled pork grilled cheese with smoked gouda… pulled pork enchiladas… Success!
