200. Roast Pork Shoulder Cubano: Puerco Asado p.477

200. Roast Pork Shoulder Cubano: Puerco Asado p.477

The recipe
Very few things in life are as good, or as simple as roast pork. The bachelor party tradition among my group of friends is to spit-roast a pig over charcoal. We recently went in on a roaster and put it through it’s paces before my wedding. Spending the afternoon hanging out and watching the [...]

186. Lillie's North Carolina Chopped Barbecue p.479

I can’t find a copy of this recipe online.
Barbecue is one of those things I would dearly love to know a whole lot more about. But living in Montreal means that I’m unlikely to stumble across BBQ competitions, and there are very few pit masters looking to take on an apprentice. My lack of a [...]

183. Georgian Pork Stew p.485

183. Georgian Pork Stew p.485

The recipe
The Georgian Salsa called ajika, which I blogged about last time totally blew me away. This pork stew uses a lot of the same flavours, and integrates the ajika as an important ingredient, so predictably, I like it a lot. The stew uses some unusual ingredients including summer savory, corriander seeds, fenugreek, and dried [...]

145. Cider Braised Pork Shoulder with Caramelized Onions p.476

145. Cider Braised Pork Shoulder with Caramelized Onions p.476

The recipe
I love to braise. It’s almost worth suffering through the interminable and bitter winter of Montreal to do it. Of course you could braise all year round if you really wanted to, but somehow simmering meat for hours in the middle of July just doesn’t sound like a good idea. Braised meats are delicious, [...]

129. Posole: Pork and Hominy Stew p.486

129. Posole: Pork and Hominy Stew p.486

Epicurious doesn’t have a recipe for this one, but one of the posole recipes I found on there looks great, and might address some of my concerns with this dish.
I was really excited to make this. My dining companion came home raving about the posole at Le Jolifou, a great Montreal restaurant which specializes in [...]

62. Char Siu p.478

The recipe
This recipe was a bit of effort, but boy was it worth it. The ingredients are simple and readily available, and they come together in the most delightful way with the judicious application of heat. The recipe calls for a 1 pound boneless pork butt or shoulder. I bought a whole picnic ham (from [...]
