The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich

The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Who “they” are, I’m not really sure, but I wholeheartedly agree. If you’re like me, you wake up hungrier than an adolescent kid on his third day of fat camp, and visions of applewood smoked bacon dance in your head. For my loved ones and me, Saturday and Sunday can’t officially begin until we are sinking our teeth into a juicy combo of meat, dairy, and carbs, and there’s no better way to do that than in the form of the modern-day breakfast sandwich.

The Best Pulled Pork Recipe…Ever

The Best Pulled Pork Recipe…Ever

Chefs and amateur cooks typically have that one recipe that they hold sacred. That recipe defines their style of cooking and is their go-to when providing a bountiful feast for friends, family, potential life partners and everyone in between. Well, this pulled pork recipe is mine. This meal has been taste-tested by some of my toughest critics, and the response has never been short of two thumbs way up.
Best Pulled Pork Recipe
Most people think that real high quality slow-cooked meats require a professional smoker and some type of secret sauce, and therefore they never give pulled-pork recipes a fair shot. This recipe requires no special tools and can be made in the comfort of your own kitchen, no matter how small it may be. Patience is the only requirement for preparing this meal, because once the palpable aroma of the seasoned meat fills your house, it’ll be hard to wait the full 10 hours that this hunk of pork takes to reach perfection. That’s right: This pork shoulder is cooked low and slow for almost half a day until it literally falls apart. If you like super-tender and juicy pork that is equally sweet, spicy and smoky, then this recipe is for you. Get after it and check out our full recipe on MadeMan.com here
