Vietnamese pulled pork lettuce wraps



Ingredients: 

1 bone-in blade pork roast, 4 1/2 lbs
1/4 cup Sriracha chili sauce
1/2 cup Thai sweet chili sauce, 
16-20 Bibb lettuce leaves
1/2 cup matchstick carrots

Directions:

Using a thin sharp knife make shallow crosswise cuts, about 1/2-inch thick, spaced 1-inch apart, all over pork. Place pork on rack in roasting pan (if using aluminum, use two pans, stacked on top of each other). Spread hot pepper sauce all over pork, turning over with tongs to avoid touching sauce. Add 1/2 cup water to bottom of pan. Prepare a grill to medium indirect heat (around 350 degrees F.). Place pan with pork on the grill over indirect heat. Cover grill and cook, turning pork over after 45 minutes, grilling until the pork is beginning to brown, 1 1/2 hours. Cover pan and pork with aluminum foil. Continue cooking, with lid closed, maintaining temperature as needed, for 2 hours. Remove and discard foil. Continue cooking in a closed grill, turning pork over after 30 minutes, until pork is fork tender and the outside is browned, about 1 hour. Remove pan with pork from grill. Cover again with foil and let stand for 30 minutes. Transfer pork to cutting board. Pour pan juices into a bowl and skim off fat. Use two forks to shred meat into bite-sized pieces. Transfer to bowl and moisten with 1/4 to 1/2 cup pan juices. For each wrap, add pork to a lettuce leaf and top with a drizzle of Thai or Vietnamese sweet garlic chili sauce and a sprinkle of carrots. Serve with additional hot sauce. 

8 to 10 servings 

*For a substitute, combine 1/2 cup apricot preserves, 1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes and 1 minced garlic clove in a small bowl.

Easy-breezy honey, Chipotle pork kabobs


 
Ingredients:
1 Lb  New York pork chops
1 Sweet  potato in 1 inch cubes
 
12 oz small red potatoes
 
Salt to taste 
 
1/2 cup of barbecue sauce
 
1/2 cup of honey
 
3 canned Chipotle chiles in Adobo sauce
 
12 scallions
 
1/2 cup of goat cheese
 
1 Tbs cilantro
 

 
Directions:

Place sweet potatoes and red or white potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with cold water by 1 inch, and season water with salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer and cook until potatoes are cooked but still firm, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool slightly. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine barbecue sauce, honey and chipotles. Divide mixture in half and set both batches aside. Thread pork, sweet potatoes, potatoes and scallions onto 8 12-inch skewers (pre-soaked in water if wood or bamboo). Prepare a grill to medium-hot heat and thoroughly oil the grate. Cook 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on each side, brushing with one batch of the sauce each time you turn, cooking until all 4 sides are charred, pork is cooked through, and the sauce is used up, about 10 minutes. Transfer skewers to a platter and set aside to rest 3 minutes. Sprinkle skewers with cheese and cilantro. Serve hot with the remaining batch of sauce on the side.
