Today you get a two for one deal on recipes courtesy of our good friend @monkeybutt_bbq. These delicious dishes (Pulled Pork Lo Mein and Pork Potstickers) are great because they contain all of the major food groups for one well rounded and filling meal in two simple dishes. I think a lot of people avoid making dumplings because the dough and prep feel intimidated. DON’T BE INTIMIDATED! This is so easy and so good that it could turn into a weekly meal with its own night of the week. So long Taco Tuesday, hello Potsticker… Tuesday…? So, we’re still working on the name, but that doesn’t change how amazing these recipes are. Find the Pork Potstickers recipe here.
1-2 cups pulled pork (or pre cooked protein of your choice)
2 medium carrots, julienne
