Caesar salad with Crisp Shredded Pork

This is something different to do with shredded pork, something that doesn't involve any barbecue sauce. Imagine that!

This has three basic ingredients:
  1. Shredded pork
  2. Romaine lettuce
  3. Caesar salad dressing
  • Fry the shredded pork in a dry fry pan. Add a little olive oil if you must but the object is to make the pork a bit crispy. Watch it carefully so it doesn't burn and stop before it is all crisp; leave some soft and juicy.
  • Cut the romaine leaves into crosswise strips
  • Toss the hot pork, romaine, and dressing.
That's it. Now, if you, like me, don't happen to have Caesar dressing in your fridge, you can create a reasonable substitute by cutting mayonnaise with bottled Italian dressing and adding some good grated cheese. Tonight's salad dressing included:
  • Mayonnaise
  • Bottled red wine vinegar and olive oil dressing
  • Some jarred basil pesto
  • Freshly grated Asiago cheese
Easy & yummy!

Imprecise & Inexpensive

Two themes predominate in my approach to cooking. 1. Daily cooking of flavorful food need not be a precise art. 2. You can be an adventurous cook on a budget. Cooking and eating should be fun for both cookers and eaters.
