Pulled Pork Fries

These Pulled Pork Fries are amazing. You can go with just about any roast recipe you want but I highly recommend you use 1 of 2 of my recipes; Kalua Pork Roast or my Oven Baked Ribs; Kalua, of course, being a tender Hawaiian style pulled pork and the Oven Baked Ribs being a Steak House style rib with Cumin.

These Fries are made fresh from medium sized Russet Potatoes but if you’re feeling lazy, don’t hesitate to bake or fry up a frozen bag of french fries.  I also add a sliced sauteed onion to the pulled pork for a little more flavor and I cover the french fries with Colby Jack Cheese just before I smother with the pork and onions.  And after everything is plated, I like to top the whole thing off with a Spicy Mayo Fry Sauce I’ve included in the ingredients below.

If you’re interested in other French Fry recipes, you should really look into my Lomo Saltado recipe.  It’s a Peruvian dish with seasoned and seared steak, sauteed onions, peppers and french fries.  If you’ve never seen this recipe I highly recommend you take a look at it.

Pulled Pork Fries Ingredients:

4 Russet Potatoes, sliced
1 Kalua Pork Roast or Rack of Ribs
1 Onion, sliced
1 tbsp Fresh Parsly, chopped
Salt to taste

Spicy Fry Sauce
1/4 cup Mayo
1/4 cup Ketchup
1 tbsp Horse Raddish
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar

The Best Garlic Mashed Potatoes

These Garlic Mashed Potatoes are awesome, simple as that.  And I can go on about it for several reasons.  But first, know that most mashed potato recipes are very similar if not exactly the same.  So, how are you going to reinvent something that cooks think they have already perfected?  The answer is simple.  Just think Potato.  There are so many different kinds of potatoes, plus many ways to cook potatoes.  So all you have to do is go back to the basics, keep it simple yet powerful.

My Mashed Potatoes Secret Ingredient

For me, I love potato chips.  One in particular, in fact, Potato Skins.  That’s one of the reasons I leave my skins on in this Mashed Potatoes recipe; that and the nutrient factor, of course.  Also, when I eat chips or a baked potato, I usually have Sour Cream.  Now, there isn’t Sour Cream in this recipe but most recipes use milk, half and half or cream.  But why hasn’t anyone tried to use Buttermilk?  It’s sweet and sour, just like sour cream, and most folks like it with their baked potato.  Believe it or not, it is the perfect balance; that and the other ingredients I’ve added down below.  Anyway, these potatoes are great anytime but I think they’re even better around the Holidays.  So give this a try and don’t forget to leave your comments.
