Irish Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2014
This is it! I know everyone has a picky eater or 3 in their family, but my DH takes the cake...actually he won't eat most cake, that's how picky! But this was heavenly! I had planned on making lamb meatballs as an appetizer in the near future, but needed a dinner meal one night. Decided on this and am I glad I did! I halved the recipe as it's just the 2 of us, but leftovers would have been very welcome! As a halfer, I used 3 cloves of garlic, cuz why not, a little extra ketchup, and had some mint on hand so chopped a bit of that in. It was so flavorful, I can't imagine how others think it is bland...season to taste!!! I used lamb, not 50/50 beef/lamb, or turkey, just go ahead and try it with the main ingredient-it is worth it! I did drain a bit of fat off after the browning, and used chicken broth instead of water-but that's it!! If hubby approved, then you are all in for a real treat with this one!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
This is delicious! I have vacationed in Hawaii many times and was so delighted to find an easy version to try at home. After reading pages and pages of reviews, and making this several times, I have found the perfect recipe to suit everyone I have entertained. This recipe is pretty much fool-proof, only things I do different are: remove the big layer of fat; I find the marbling throughout the pork butt/shoulder gives off enough juices. Then add about a half cup of pineapple juice to the slowcooker, add my fork stabbed, salt rubbed and liquid smoked pork, then topped with 2 bananas, peels on and just a slit along it length wise. Thats it! After 6 hours I flip it, another 6 and its ready to shred! Juices go into a tall glass and into the freezer while I shred, skim off fat, then return fatless juices to the slowcooker with the now shredded pork. I leave in for about an hour to soak up juices, then serve however I feel like it. One of my favorite ways is to cook this overnight, then for breakfast make scrambled eggs, the Kalua pork, and wrap in a whole wheat tortilla. Yup! I use a 5.5 bone in shoulder/butt.
