Pulled Pork Pie

I had a stash of pulled pork saved from the last cinder block pit cook so I decided to make another pulled pork pie.

I lined the cast iron skillet with sliced potatoes...



sprinkled them with Big Poppa's Desert Gold...



added the pulled pork and sprinkled with more Desert Gold...



then a layer of minced scallions...




a drizzle of spicy Q sauce. I used Billy Sim's Boot Kickin sauce.


sprinkled with shredded provolone cheese...



Instead of making a potato top for the pie like the last pulled pork pie... I topped this one with a bacon latice.



sprinkled with more Desert Gold and into the Memphis Pro at 325F.


I baked the pie until the bacon was nice and crisp and the cheese inside was bubbly hot.






It was pretty danged tasty. I thought about making a side dish of slaw but this was more than I could eat anyway.


I'll definately make this again!

Absolutely awesome and I'm sure the bacon took it over the top

JP said...

Yumm! A great way to use leftover pulled pork. Thanks for the idea! Oh, and anything is better with a bacon weave on it.

Bill said...

Awesome idea! I'm always game for more options with leftover que. Will try this for sure!

Really enjoy your blog.

Mrs. JP said...

thanks for the great idea. you know we have pork in the freezer :O) i love those easy peasy recipes and provolone is my favorite, this is definitely a home-run.

cowgirl said...

Thanks David! I sure could use a bit of rain. :) Hope you are having a nice week!

cowgirl said...

Hi Steve! I came up with it but am definately not a genius. Thanks though. :)
I was actually going to make more of a shepherds pie with smooshed tatoes but I was lazy and sliced them instead. Last time I made a sliced potato top but I liked this bacon latice better.
Hope you are having a nice week too Steve!

cowgirl said...

Thanks Larry! I was afraid that a full bacon weave would soak the pie with bacon drippings so I went for the smaller latice. It worked out fine. I think I might add a few diced potatoes to the next one. :)
Hope you have a great week!

Kirk said...

That's a great idea for leftover pork, the problem is having enough leftover pork butt.

Chris said...

Served with a "super cold" beer, no less! Nice job Jeannie!

fnnm358 said...

that looks awesome i am going to have to try that one with your permission of course.

cowgirl said...

Thank you Kirk! You're right, it is hard to save back pulled pork! :)
I like to smoke extra butts just so I have a stash in the freezer. :)

cowgirl said...

Thanks Chris! :)

cowgirl said...

Definately fnnm358! Hope you tweak the recipe to suit your tastes too. I think next time I might put in a few cubed potatoes.
Hope it turns out well for you.
Thanks....and thanks for stopping by. :)
