I ended last week by throwing a gigantic 8-lb Pork roast into the slow cooker. I put the other one in the freezer for later. Pulled Pork is a staple in this house. Once done it practically falls apart, but it can still be shredded with a mixer. Considering how much pork I made, I'm glad I shredded it with the mixer! That still leaves one question, what does a family of three, do with this much pork!?
We ate pork all week, and didn't get bored. It addition to the usual pork quesadillas, and BBQ pulled pork, we made a variety of dishes, including BBQ pork grilled cheese, green chili enchiladas, BBQ-Ranch Salad, Pulled Pork Philly Cheese Steaks, and Pork & black bean chili. So many different delicious recipes, they are not going to fit in one blog post, so you'll have to check back!
One of the first *new* dishes I made with the pork, was a breakfast pork skillet. We've gone to a few brunches, as this amazing restaurant, called Egg Harbor. They make the most delicious skillet breakfast. I'll have to try my hand at a few other copy cats. I found this recipe, from the The Black Peppercorn, but modified it for our dinner.

The left over pork skillet reheated great, I just cooked fresh eggs.
