Do you cook meat a lot?
This evening, I decided to try to make a Cuban something or other pork shoulder.
I was pleasantly surprised by how great it turned out, especially since I did not at all follow the recipe and my meat thermometer didn’t work so I had to guess as to when the meat was done.
I got this piece of pork shoulder from Whole Foods. It wasn’t the cost of a pound of scallops aka super expensive, but it was definitely more costly than bone in chicken thighs.
I had this with a bit of rice and some corn succatash. I basically used all of my patience to make the pork, so I threw canned corn in a skillet and seasoned it and melted some butter and pow, good enough.
A slab of meat is nice to cook because there’s enough to eat tomorrow, too. I’m pleasantly surprised. I really feel like an oven master.
What’s the last new recipe you’ve tried?
Until tomorrow my friends…
