I would appreciate recipes for using canned pork.
Jayhawk from Lawrence, KS
I make sandwich spread from canned pork, ranch dressing and pickle relish. Mash with a fork, and add 1/3 to 1/2 cup of ranch dressing and pickle relish. The amount of dressing and relish you add depends on the texture you prefer. I like the 1/3 cup results. Mix well, and serve as a sandwich filling, or on crackers as a snack.
Going to try crock pot recipe tonite
This post was so funny and true. I have 3 cans of lakeside pork - from a food bank, not very attractive to look at, and I hate to just toss it. So all these recipes are great ideas. Thank you so much. Lol.
Remove the pork from can as a whole piece, drain and remove fat. Place the whole piece over indirect coals on grill in an aluminum pan with small holes poked in the bottom. Brush on your favorite BBQ sauce. Allow the pork to get a little bark and smoke from the grill. Transfer into a small crock pot and add the jar of BBQ sauce, a little garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Once heated and mixed through Serve on Hamburger or Slider buns. The charcoal gives it a better taste and also adds that charred bark to the mix.
~Keep lid on grill and close the air vents on bottom and leave 1/16" gap on lid vent.
~I have found that if the can is refrigerated before opening it will stay together longer. It also congeals the fat and fatty juices and they can be scraped off with a spoon or fork.
~You can also keep some of the congealed fatty juice on the pork "blob" In the pan and start the pan with meat over the coals, allowing the fatty liquid to drip through the holes into the coals causing more smoke.
~Be sure to move it away from coals so it doesn't burn once you get good smoke going.
