Pork Banh Mi Lettuce Wraps ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Vietnamese #Asian #pork #recipe

All the Asian deliciousness of a Vietnamese Pork Banh Mi sandwich with the sweetly sauced pork, pickled veggies, crunchy peanuts and fresh cilantro, but in a crunchy, healthy lettuce wrap instead of a bun. I totally love these lettuce wraps even more than the sandwich! And it was very nice to hear at the event I served […]

Chinese Hot & Sour Soup

Chinese Hot & Sour Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #Soup #Recipe

Hawaiian Kalua Pork

Hawaiian Kalua Pork ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #ovenbaked #smoky #pork #recipe

Here’s another delicious Hawaiian recipe I am making for the luau! I am so enjoying this virtual culinary trip. In Hawaii, they wrap an entire pig in banana leaves and smoke it in an underground pit. There is a grand ceremony at the luau when they pull the pig out of the pit. Then they shred the smoked […]

Vietnamese Pulled Pork Salad

Vietnamese Pulled Pork Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #cabbage #pork #salad #recipe

Adapted from Peachy Palate I had a bit of BBQ pulled pork that I made for my young adult kids that was left after they were done enjoying their sandwiches. Once they’re done, they’re done. There’s no eating the leftovers, so I stashed the leftover pulled pork in a freezer-safe container in the freezer until I had […]

Peach Pecan Pulled Pork Salad with Smoky Chipotle BBQ Ranch Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad for #dinner #recipe

A while ago, I made some pulled pork for my kids in the crockpot, so they’d have something a little outside of their normal routine to eat. I’ve been wanting to make a salad with it ever since I made it. I had visions of a BBQ Cobb salad when I walked into the kitchen, […]

Meatballs with some serious taste! Garlic and ginger come together in a sweet, slightly spicy Asian sauce to create a flavor sensation.

Cinnamon Kissed Green Chile Pork Stew

Cinnamon Kissed Green Chile and Pork Stew

Sometimes you make a wish and send it out into the world and just trust that the world will take care of it. I try to be very careful with my wishes, because I have seen wishes gone awry. I have wished for things in my past that have come true, but not in the […]
