It is Valentines Day and something special needed to be made for this occasion. Ms. Goofy requested Pulled Pork. Of course the Mad Meat Genius had to bring it a step Further.. Pulled Pork Lasagna is the ticket to a wild ride this Holiday. Yesterday two pork shoulder (Butt) roasts were smoked for 12 hours and finished off in the oven. These roasts were masterpieces standing on their own. We had some sandwiches for quality control purposes. After it was determined the meat would pass muster it was combined with tomatoes , barbeque sauce and simmered. Combine it with noodles and cheese and We have one decadent lasagana.
Smoke your Butt !
We will redirect you to Butt smoking directions from Mad Meat Genius history. Survival Spice was the rub of choice today. In fact it is on sale from the manufacture if you are interested.
- 3 cups pulled pork
- 1 package of lasagna noodles: cook per package instructions
- 1 cup parmesean grated
- 1 small container ricotta
- 1 bottle of barbeque sauce (your choice, today was from Peppahead)
- 1 small can diced tomatoes
- salt & pepper
- survival spice
- 1/2 pound of mozzarella grated
- 1/2 pound of jack grated
Place tomatoes and barbeque sauce in pot and simmer for 20 minutes. Add pulled pork and salt & pepper to taste. Reserve and let cool a little.
Take a lasagna pan and assemble by layering noodles, cheese and meat sauce. I save the Parmesan for the top layer. I sprinkle a little Survival Spice on top of the Parmesan to make it all pretty for Valentines Day. Cook for 40 minutes covered in foil. Remove foil and bake for another 10 minutes or until top is golden brown.
Today was a perfect Valentines Day. I spent it with the ones I love! The Pulled Pork Lasagna was just the icing on the cake. It was rich and cheesy just like me.
