What can I do with 1/2 inch cubed pork shoulder?
I bought about 2 pounds of pork shoulder from Whole Foods and asked for it trimmed. When I got home I discovered that in addition to being trimmed it was also cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
Any suggestions for easy recipes? Does not have to be a main course. Needs to be easy. We love spicy foods.
Is there a pork and beans type dish?
Thank you in advance.
Sure, you could do that but the pork will cook down much quicker since its chopped so small.
I might cook then with some onions, garlic, paprika just until browned and use it in a taco stuffing. then you can reduce the meat juices left in the pan and make a sauce. Or you could make a hash with potatoes, mix it into some rice w/ same sauce, use it to stuff roasted bell peppers, mac and cheese (with pork), so many options!
Roll pork cubes in cumin. Sauté to brown. Add salsa of choice. Add apricot or peach preserves. Serve wirh rice.
I would rub them with a vindaloo spice mix, let sit for a day, then make pork vindaloo. In fact, bought some sliced pork shoulder that I will be doing this prep to this week.
Another favorite here would be to coat with Mexican spices, then cook with some orange juice and white vinegar and serve as al pastor tacos.
