Smoked Pork Szechuan

Discussion in 'Pork' started by up in smoke, Feb 5, 2007.

  1. Well smoked a rubless Boston Butt Sunday, but it was so cold, the kids didn’t show, so the missus and I had Yukon Gold smashed potatoes and Hot Pork sammiches w/Pork Gravy last night. So tonight I grabbed 4 or 5 thick slices of that lovely smoked pork, cut em into strips and whipped me up a batch of tantalizing Smoked Pork Szechuan with about a #9 heat, my sweetie thought it a bit too zippy for her palate :oops: I thought it was the cats meow! :roll: Ah So! Sorry no shots, I ate the model! :shock:

    Now Carl I know you better than that. There had to be some Siracchi in there somewhere!

    Carl, I saw that 2 tbs of chile paste in the recipe and my forehead broke out in a sweat!! I am going to try this but I gotta tame it down a bit for Mrs. Dutch. The only thing she likes hot is me!! Opps did I really type that!!! SHOCK!!
     
  9. Well, Roger…with the pepper flake infused oil and the 2 Tbs of chili paste I figure normal people have their limits, I of course had to squirt some additional srirachi sauce on my portion or my sweetie would have been dining on cheese crackers!

    I hear you brother. Gotta try that recipe. (insert smiley face here):)
     
  11. As a correction, please note…the smoked pork was a butt not a loin (however I’m sure a loin would make for a perfectly fine substitute, albeit maybe not quite as tender as a butt). Thank you!

  13. I like a little heat, but my motto is; food should not hurt.

    That sounds like it would taste great (maybe minus a bit of the heat although it is so cold here in Michigan I am not sure I would feel the heat).

    I give you 2 gold stars for a great sounding recipe[​IMG][​IMG]
