I used to not eat pork very often, not because it’s unhealthy or I have any weird hang-ups about eating pork, I just didn’t really know how to cook it. Obviously I could have just cooked it in some BBQ sauce, but I hate BBQ sauce. One time Scott accidentally put BBQ sauce on our French fries at a hockey game instead of ketchup (yeah, I know, fries at a game aren’t healthy, but 80/20) and I almost beat him (is this inappropriate? Scott and I share a really strange/awesome sense of humor). He almost beat himself because he loves ketchup so much. I think he would drink it if he could. It’s really gross. Anyway, a couple of months ago I started ordering pork ribs from my farmer and I discovered that tossing them in the crock pot over night or while I was at work all day with a bunch of random ingredients turned out really well, and enlisted very little work from me. Which I loved. But last night pork was the only thawed protein I had, and I couldn’t wait all night to eat dinner. So I did the usual: tossed a bunch of random ingredients together but this time I put it on the stove. And it was amazing.
On the side I had cauliflower mashed potatoes and snap peas cooked in a lot of butter.
