What the Stanley Cup Playoff season means to me, by Miss Daleen.
It means instead of setting a proper table, sublet background music, beautiful linens, flatware and a lovely centerpiece……………
We get to eat dinner, in front of the television and watch HOCKEY!
Who among us doesn’t love a casual dinner, great entertainment alongside some amazing food?
Extra flavor, easy to make and something you can eat with your hands. (Yes, even Emily Post would, on occasion eat foods with her hands, using paper napkins of course.)
Bring on the BBQ Pulled Pork Sammies!!! Oh yeah, dripping with flavor, excellent texture and topped with the crunch of cole slaw. Really people, JUMP ON THIS BANDWAGON!!!
(I’ll go ahead and let you google the Toronto Maple Leafs Bandwagon)
Here we go.
WAIT!!!! I know what you are thinking. Why, Daleen, I thought you didn’t eat meat? I thought you didn’t eat pork?
Of course not.
Hello Jack! Young green Jackfruit that is.
This recipe comes from none other than Sam Turnbull. Once again, another recipe she knocks it out of the park(or in this case the ice arena, ha). https://itdoesnttastelikechicken.com/6-ingredient-pulled-jackfruit/
The recipe is easy peasy (6 ingredients). Amazing flavor. The perfect texture.
Here’s the deal, More often than not, I don’t try to re-create meat dishes and make them vegetarian. I have discovered that it will most likely not be a successful endeavor. However, lately, I have been proven wrong.
This might come as a surprise. Even folks that don’t eat meat, like to have a stack of paper napkins nearby, say Grace and DIG IN with both hands and savor an amazing Pulled Pork Sammie. Yes, indeed.
What is Jackfruit? A fast-growing tropical Asian tree related to the breadfruit. Want to boost your immune system and get some vitamins while doing so? May I gently suggest this big, beautiful edible fruit?
I drained, cut, cooked, baked and smothered it all in a glorious BBQ sauce.
How about I let some pictures do the talking?
Then I whipped up a beautiful, creamy, hint of tangy sauce for the coleslaw, toasted some buns to a golden brown, got out some pickles and YES, opened a bag of potato chips.
This was an A+ meal.
I would most certainly serve this to any of our family or friends. I might stuff it into tacos next time, or I generously top a pizza. This is that good. You take a bite and start looking for more ways you can add it to your dinner line up.
This sammie is so good, the bench will clear and folks will be dropping their gloves and fighting over it. Okay, well maybe not fighting, however, they will leave their seats and politely go get seconds.
So for you, Hockey fans out there………..in the words of an over-the-top (and you know what I mean) excited announcer…..
She shoots, she SCORES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In this together, friends.
