My Southern California son has gone all Southern on me–Southern as in New Orleans. I picked him up at the airport last week and we headed to Ralph’s to buy his favorites–Have’a Chips, salsa and guacamole. So you can imagine how shocked I was when he walked right past the chips and straight to the meat section looking for “pulled pork”.
I had to remind him that markets in Laguna don’t sell ready-to-eat pulled pork. He couldn’t believe it. But after a brief chat with the butcher we came home with this and his plan to make pulled pork po’boys.
Within minutes my counter looked like this. I had to laugh a little–I do the same thing.
I suggested using the crock pot, but he had other ideas. It was clear to me right away there were “too many chefs in the kitchen” and I took the role of photographer and tried to keep my suggestions to myself. (I can’t tell you how hard that was!) And by the way, for any of you with 20-year-olds, have you noticed they KNOW EVERYTHING.
In the end, he made one heck of a po’boy and I have to admit, I was really proud of him and I didn’t even mind the looks of the kitchen floor when he was done.
- all of the ingredients you see in the picture above
- about 3 lbs. of pork shoulder
- 1 onion, chopped
- olive oil

- mozzarella cheese
Anyway, indulge before you begin your New Year’s Resolutions. It’s worth every calorie and next week I’ll have something more slimming.
Thanks to all my readers all over the world! And as always, Enjoy!
