How are you preparing it. What are you having along side it? Inquiring minds want to know!

I made my own seasoned breadcrumbs using hamburger buns and toasting in the oven. I just threw in some seasoned, peeled, sliced red potatoes with some baby carrots thrown in... for some color. I still plan on doing green beans.

I was teaching myself how to velvet beef. I did the velveting thing then did a stir fry with a basic sauce. It was good, looking forward to making beef with broccoli in the next few days.

It is surprising how tender the beef turns out.

Slice into bite size pices against the grain. Mix beef with egg and corn starch and marinate for 20 to 30 minutes.

Heat oil to 300 F fry meat for about 1 minute, remove.

Then when you use the meat in your stir fry it will retain moisture.

Okay, we had a DC supper.

A friend, whose wife is out of town cooking on a youth trip (in my place as I wasn't able to go) came over for dinner. I had several appointments today so decided to do pulled pork in the crockpot thanks to BigDaddy and served it with buns, my BBQ sauce, potato and green salads. We topped it of with Katie's Double Dutch Chocolate Ice Cream.

It was highly successful and really simple. I think pulled pork will become part of my repertoire.

I served this with potato salad which I was inspired to cook by VanillaBean and I based the recipe on Msmofets but had to change a few things because some ingredients I couldn't get. I'll post the adapted recipe soon.





And here it is altogether



that looks great!! i send me a link to your potato salad i can't wait to see how you changed the recipe.
