4 Summertime Pork Recipes
SIOUX FALLS, S.D.- Summer is almost here and it’s time to dust off your grill and enjoy some barbecue. Stacey Sorlien from South Dakota Pork Producers stopped by the KDLT Kitchen to share some summertime recipes with pork.
Pulled Pork Scramble
6 oz. cooked pulled pork
6 large eggs
salt and pepper
1 tbs. olive oil
half a small red pepper, cored and cut into quarter-inch dice
half a small green pepper, cored and cut into quarter-inch dice
half a small onion, cut into quarter-inch dice
fourth-cup of cheddar cheese, or monterey jack, or mozzarella, shredded divided
In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the pork and stir occasionally until hot, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate or bowl, cover loosely to keep warm, and set aside.
Return the skillet to medium heat, add the bell peppers, and cook, stirring occasionally, for one minute. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about five minutes. Add the eggs and cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggs are softly set, about two minutes. Stir in about half of the pork. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggs are set, about one minute.
Scatter the cheese and the remaining pork on top and serve.
