I was wanting some red beans and rice. Been quite some time since I had it not out of a box or at a restaurant. Doing a little research on the subject I decided to try making a batch using pickle meat, or pickled pork. The recipe I used for pickle meat called for 2 pounds of pork shoulder. I had a hunk of bone in shoulder on hand, cut off what I thought was a reasonable chunk. Just for grins, threw it on the scale: THAT will never happen again! Bottom line - I *will* be doing this again. The tangy, spicy bits of pork slow simmered with the beans and veggies was very nice. I messed up just a tad on the seasoning, could have used less thyme and a bit more garlic. But good stuff, a nice meal. No pictures, use your imagination. Maybe next time I'll make some tasso... mjb.
