It’s a miscarriage of a name. I know it. You know it. No one has ever said “I can’t wait to tell the waiter I want his stew.” I don’t know why you’d be talking to yourself at a restaurant. Also, “his stew?” Yikes, what’s wrong with you…
Despite the horrible name this is a wonderful meal. It’s also dirt cheap. And so easy to make. If you went back in time and were trapped in the middle ages, you could make this and they’d call you a god. Or maybe a witch. They didn’t like witches, did they?
Anyway, like I was saying, this is an easy recipe. I’m a lazy guy so I’ll take any chance to do less work. And I love cheap things. So this really is a match made in heaven. Or Valhalla/Nirvana. Or whatever special breed of fairy tale afterlife your religion affords you.
1 whole bone-in pork shoulder
Yeah, the whole thing. And don’t do anything to it. If I wanted you to slice it or cube it or some shit I would have said that. The last time I ordered one from Amazon Fresh the bone was sticking out and it had the skin on. If you can find one like this you’ll thank me.
Don’t get fancy here. Just use plain fucking tap water.
Some pulled pork.
Enough for two people. I don’t know how big or small you are. Use your best judgement.
(Reserve some of the liquid from the pulled pork recipe).
Don’t be stingy here. Use enough to make it taste good. If your doc told you to watch your sodium, chances are you’re getting too much from the four Jimmy Dean turkey breakfast sausages you’re starting each day with, not from the salt you cook with. And don’t use regular iodized salt.
Canned Chipotle peppers
You’ll find these in the “Ethnic” aisle in almost any grocery store. The sample place you find the salsa and hard taco shells every May 4th.
Sure, fresh is fine too. Don’t use sliced loaf bread. Get a baguette. Or Italian bread. Something with a little more interest than Wonder Bread. And no seeds. Bread shouldn’t have seeds. You’re not a goddamn bird.
