Sriracha pork mac n' cheese
Last week I cooked up a ginormous pork shoulder, to make a big batch of pulled pork. (Why not; I had a lot of jars of barbecue sauce around.) Hubs and I have been eating pulled pork sandwiches all week, which is delicious, but was becoming tiring.
So today I decided to make a big batch of pork mac and cheese.
I used this mac and cheese recipe, without the greenery, with lots of leftover shredded pork added in. (I used regular cheddar cheese; I bet pepper jack would be fantastic in this.)
On the spur of the moment, I added a healthy amount of Sriracha to the cheese sauce, enough to turn it lightly orange.
The result was a slightly spicy, very porky, very cheesy mac and cheese.
Sriracha and pork make everything better, don't they? To celebrate I made myself a Srirazerac, as well.
