[HomeCookin’] pulled pork wonton soup w/ broccoli +a chili, ginger broth.
Well, here goes another recipe using the left over slow cooker pork! I really want to change up the flavor and create something new with the pork. I first started with a broth… Pour two cartons of chicken broth into a pot with garlic, ginger, some chopped fennel, fresh chilies and a swig of soy sauce. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 20 mins. Chop the pork into smaller pieces and mix in a bowl with some sesame oil, soy sauce and fish sauce. Mix and mash through to break up the meat. Use packaged wonton wrappers and make dumplings with the pork mixture. Make chow mien noodles to package directions and then drain and set aside. In a steamer above the stock, steam fresh greens until just tender. (I used broccoli and asparagus but would usually use bok choy) Bring stock to a medium simmer and in batches boil the dumplings until cooked. Reserve on a plate. In a bowl serve noodles, dumplings, green veggies and then ladle hot broth over the top. Garnish with cilantro, scallions, chili oil and fresh chilies. So delicious!

[HomeCookin’] Slow cooked pulled pork naan pizza w/ caramelized onion, mozzarella & a sriracha tzatiki - holy hell this is GOOD!
This is super simple to make and literally used the pulled pork from Monday night!
Brush two store bought naan breads with olive oil and sprinkle some crushed fresh garlic on top. Lay on a foil lined tray and place in a 350F oven for 10 mins.
While the naan is heating up, saute a sliced onion in a fry pan until it starts to caramelize. Set aside.
Heat up enough pulled pork to cover your pizza. Add a little chicken stock, Sriracha, salt, pepper and a sprinkle of paprika.
On top of the warmed naan bread, cover with slices of fresh mozzarella and a little grated cheese of your choice. Put these back in the oven, until the cheese melts.
Cover the melted cheese with pulled pork, caramelized onions, chopped scallions and cilantro… and a little more shredded cheese. 
Put the pizza back in the oven for approx 5 mins.
Make a quick tzaztiki with chopped cucumber, greek yogurt, lime juice and a little Sriracha.
Garnish the hot pizza with remaining chopped scallion, cilantro, fresh chopped tomato and a little Tzatiki!
ENJOY.

[HomeCookin’] 10hr slow cooker dry rub pulled pork with black beans & rice. 
It’s been awhile since I slow roasted a pork shoulder and this one was one of the best I have made!
A dry rub of the spices I had in my pantry worked wonders for flavor and 10 slow hours made this pork succulent and fall of the bone tender.
[TRIM] a 4lb pork shoulder of it’s extra fat. Keep the bone in for flavor!
[MARINATE] the pork shoulder with a dry spice rub made from whatever you have in your pantry. Mine had: saltpepperthymeoreganopaprikared pepper flakesmole seasoning (Mexican spice blend)fennel seeds3 pods of star anise4 gloves of peeled garlic, roughly chopped and stuffed into pork4 thai birdseye red chilies, stuffed into pork
Cover and let marinate for a couple hours in the fridge OR if you can, overnight.
[COOK] Chop an onion and lay on the bottom of the crock pot. Slow cook the marinated pork shoulder in a slow cooker for 10 hours on SLOW. When it’s cooked through, the meat should pull off the bones and you should be able to take out the bones pretty easily.
On low heat, add a little hot sauce (we used Sriracha), lime and seasoning to taste. The pork and spices should have created a self sauce, so just stir this through the shredded meat.
[SERVE] with your accompaniment of choice! We served ours with black beans, rice, fresh avocado, tomato and cilantro.
YUM!
