Left over pork for New Years? Make this.

12 January 2009

We made a traditional pork roast, sausages, homemade apple sauce, potatoes, and cabbage dinner for New Years Day. So what do you do with all of the leftover pork, aside from eating it for days and days? Make these super delish sandwhiches!
Caramelize some onions in a pan with olive oil. After they've started to caramelize, add 1/3 cup dried cranberries to the pan along with some thyme, sage, black pepper, and parsley. Allow them to plump a bit, then add a couple tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, some apple juice (maybe 1/4 cup?), and a little white wine. Allow to cook down for a minute or two, then add the leftover pork that you shred between two forks, cover and let it simmer until most of the liquid is absorbed into the pork.
To assemble the sandwhich, place a slice of swiss cheese on the bottom of a bun and top with the pork, cranberry, and onion mixture. So so sooooo very good.
I served it with chips and this salad made of romaine, cranberry, pecans, cranberry white cheddar cheese, and crunchy chow mein noodles.
