Here's a bit of news that was buzzing around last week: Did you hear that the Pork Board sent a cease and desist notice to ThinkGeek over their unicorn meat packaging?
ThinkGeek launches some new, exciting, and ultimately fake product every April Fool's Day. This year, it was a SPAM-esque tin of unicorn meat ("Crunchy horn bits in every bite"). Their only mistake was labeling it "the new white meat."
Butchery has been a hot thing these past few years. If you're going to eat animals, then you better be prepared to know (and use!) everything to do with their innards, right? This matched set of posters from Mystery Hound celebrates that trend with an overview of two old-school styles of pork butchery.
An authentic Cuban sandwich must have roast pork in it to be worth its salt, and if you want to do it right, make lechón asado. It's not just for sandwiches; this stands up on its own as a main dish with some rice and black beans.
I promised you one of my favorite recipes for a crowd, and this is it! This recipe very handily fed about a dozen people at a recent weekend get-together; there were even leftovers. It's also a very easy and delicious recipe with terrific flavor. And yet it takes less than half an hour to put it all together. Perfect menu for company!

Yesterday, we mentioned how we've been cooking a big pork shoulder over the weekend and then using it in recipes all week long. This is a great way to make one meal (pulled pork sandwiches!) stretch into several different meals. Here are some ways we like to use the leftovers!
Pork tenderloin is a great cut of meat for quick weeknight suppers. It's relatively inexpensive, widely available, and quick to prepare. Here's one of our favorite ways to cook it: A quick paste of garlic and rosemary, a little salt and pepper, and high-heat roasting, and it's on the table in just about 30 minutes!
We were craving pulled pork something fierce last week, so we got ourselves a nice pork shoulder and got looking for a good indoor recipe. We finally decided on a slow-cooker pulled pork recipe published a few years back on The Splendid Table radio show. And, people? You have got to try this recipe!
Pulled pork is definitely a summer picnic kind of dish, but lately we've been craving it like mad. And it seems we're not alone! We've spotted several pulled pork recipes in the past few weeks that we can make while staying cozy indoors. Which one should we make this weekend?
