Default What to do with pork butt instead of pulled pork w/ Pron

Well my roommate who isn't much of a cook wanted to make pork and pumpkin chili. The recipe he used called for 2.5lbs of pork butt. He didn't realize country style ribs were cut up pork butt, so instead he bought a 9lb pork butt and just hack off what he needed and asked me if I could do something with it.

I said no problem! But didn't want to make pulled pork since I just made some 3 days ago.

So I went to my childhood days where my parents would make Pork Tosino (sweet and salt pork) and decided I would do that. It is thin sliced pieces of pork butt that is cured in 3 parts sugar 1 part salt for a minimum of 3 days. Each day you just drain the liquid out of the container you are storing it in (store it in the fridge of course)

I didnt get any pron of the process but this is what I made tonight.

Pan fried at medium heat (was going to smoke it but Hurricane Sandy put a damper on doing it that way)


Made some apple, fennel, carrot slaw. 2 gala apples, 2 small fennel bulbs, 2 carrots all julienned up. Add in a handful of crasins, tablespoon of agave nectar, half a container of greek yogurt (in place of mayo), juice of 2 lemons, salt and pepper to taste.


Chop the pork tosino into strips, put on ciabatta bread top with slaw and sever with a side of the slaw!


Thanks for looking!

That looks great! My wife hates mayo, so this might work for her, I'll have to give it a shot.

I'm not a big fan of Mayo either. I found in a lot of recipes for comfort food turned healthier that greek yogurt was substituted for mayo. It has a slightly different flavor but one that I think is better than mayo. And it is healthier as a biproduct!

Tosino is a filipino dish. I grew up eating it and normally whenever we get together as a family for Thanksgiving and Christmas my dad will make it for my sisters and I for breakfast. The sweet and salty flavor rocks along with the tenderness of the pork. Normally we eat it with steamed rice and egg w/ runny yolk. True filipino comfort food!

There are recipes which use nitrates and pineapple juice. But the nice simple sugar and salt cure is what I like the most.
