I’ve been smoking this 9 lb pork shoulder all day. Finished it off the last hour or so in foil to get it hot enough to dissolve the connective tissues and you can just pinch it to pieces between your fingers.
I found some boneless beef short ribs for like $3 on manager special at Schnucks. Did a sear and red onion, garlic, coriander, dried fennel, salt and pepper reduction with some red wine. Cooked up a couple waxy potatoes and smashed em with sour cream, butter, and a bit of vinegar. Finish it with a reduction pan sauce...a cheap but satisfying meal.
made a simple pot roast and it killed. 2 english chuck roasts. double container of beef broth and a couple spoons of better than boullion beef base and water. threw the roasts in the liquid. chopped a couple onions, diced garlic, container of sliced mushrooms(fresh), bag of baby carrots, and halved and quartered a small bag of yukon golds. Threw it all together and baked covered for 2 hours at 380. Then I mixed in 2 packs of au jus and baked another 2 or 3 hours. fuckin eh. served with a loaf of italian for dipping in the gravy. Eating leftovers now on some cheese grits.
