I’d like to say that I learn from my mistakes but clearly I don’t. This pan is burned way worse than my first one. Did I think of putting foil down this time? No! Why? Post pregnancy brain! Is that a thing? Haha. My husband is definitely hating me on this one but we are letting it soak and we will tackle that monster tomorrow.
Today’s post will be about Classic Pulled Pork page 229 and Hawaiian Burger page 153 from the Dinnertime Pioneer Woman cookbook. This proved to be my two messiest dinners EVER. Although I made some wrong choices, I am here to help you.
Classic Pulled Pork
Delicious scale 9 out of 10
Husband Delicious scale 9 out of 10
Prep Time 15 minutes cook time 7 hours
Clean up 24 hours because that’s how long we have to soak this pan. I mean before look how white this is.
After sooo BLACK
Ree talks in her cookbook about how she likes to use disposable foil roasting pans. This is why you listen to Ree, she’s got it all figured out.
Pulled pork is one of my family’s favorite meals so they were all over this one. I have one of the pickiest daughters when it comes to eating and she ate everything that was on her plate. This is highly impossible most nights. I love when you get a bite of the little crispy pieces from the exterior of the pork. What a perfect bite. My tip to you all, use a disposable pan and then this will make it a perfect dish.
Delicious Scale 9 out of 10
Husband Delicious scale 7 out of 10 (he wasn’t sure what to think of pineapple on his burger)
Prep Time 25 minutes
Clean up SEVERE but I have a tip, do all your cooking on the grill outside not on a flat top grill like I did.
The idea of this burger is genius to me. Teriyaki sauce on the burger kinda caramelizes and makes it so juicy. The sauce is teriyaki and mayo mixed together. How weird does that sound? This burger was already out of my comfort zone and then I added a grilled pineapple on top. Surprisingly I absolutely loved all these flavors together. When a burger drips down your hands, that makes a perfect burger. I paired this with sweet potato fries with a dipping sauce of Sriracha and mayo mixed together.
Best way to make fries quickly is to use a mandoline slicer. If you don’t have one of these, buy one.
I would like to tell you guys that I am getting cleaner and more organized with my cooking, but I’m not. If anyone has advice on how to be cleaner and more organized I’m all ears. Haha
Happy Cooking!! Try something new sometimes you will be pleasantly surprised.
