Good Eats- Pulled Pork Hash
Earlier this week I made BBQ pulled pork sandwiches. Inevitably whenever I make pulled pork there are tons of leftovers. For some reason, a 2 lb pork butt always seems to turn into a mountain of food. I usually will eat pulled pork sandwiches throughout the week but I still usually don't make it through all the pork. Jerame hates leftovers so I usually don't make pulled pork sandwiches again for dinner. I decided this time however I was going to use that pulled pork for something. I did some research via Google and I was able to come up with an idea. Hash! Even though my pulled pork was BBQ pulled pork, I decided to try it anyway. I cut up 2 large baking potatoes into wedges, tossed them with some garlic olive oil, salt, and pepper and roasted them in the oven for 35 minutes at 450 degrees. They came out crisp and browned but still moist inside. I fried the pulled pork on the stove (just in a frying pan) until the pork was warm. I put Jerame in charge of frying the eggs. To serve, I plated the potatoes as the base, covered the potatoes in pulled pork, placed a fried egg on top of the pulled pork and dusted the plate with some italian parsley. I am happy to report that this was delicious! The potatoes and pork compliment each other perfectly and the richness of the egg and the pork together is quite appetizing. I highly recommend if you also have leftover pulled pork you aren't sure what to do with!
