Here we go ... wonderful, natural and organic boneless pork spareribs (sometimes called country-style pork ribs) were on sale so I bought some to make oven roasted pulled pork for sandwiches.
I love to serve the pulled pork on homemade rolls. I used the One Hour Rolls I posted about yesterday and Emeril Lagasse's recipe..
I've posted about this recipe before... (click HERE to view.)
I simply reduced the cooking time because these were rib meat, not a roast.
Psst... I like Tyler Florence's version just as well.
When I make these sandwiches I like to serve them with a favorite coleslaw (my mom's version) and some kind of potato; either potato salad or fries.
This time I made crispy shoestring potatoes. Actually, I think I like the potatoes as much (or more) than the sandwiches. :D
These potatoes are delicious; not chips, not fries but somewhat of a cross between the two.
The perfect, crispy complement to the juicy, succulent sandwich.
(Don't forget to toast the rolls!)
About the 'necessary' extras...
While I adore and respect my kitchen knives ~ I'm the first to admit it would take me a quite a bit of effort and time to produce these perfect julienne raw potato slices with a knife.
I turn to tools to make the task easier.
And although I received the so-called "Rolls Royce" of manual slicers (De Buyer La Mandoline V Professionnelle) as a gift years ago ~ I don't use it very often.
It's large, heavy and a bit intimidating to handle.
It still earns a place in my kitchen, but honestly the one I reach for several times a week is this one ~ easy to operate and clean, it is lightweight and a real pleasure to use:
I like that particular bundle, it comes with a variety of blades. I appreciate my sharp kitchen knives, but this mandoline makes very short work of slicing vegetables.
And just look at the finished results ~
Because they are evenly sliced they cook uniformly.
And the slicer handles the cabbage perfectly, too. ~ Thickly sliced, or thinly sliced
The combination of flavors on the plate are so delicious ~ enough to make your toes curl. :) :) :)
We don't make this very often, but really savor it when we do.
If you try it, I hope you enjoy it as well.
It is very good.
Thanks for stopping by today!
