Over the holidays, I made massive amounts of shredded meat dishes even though it was just me by myself for a week.  By the way, if you ever shred meat and have a pet cat, you can expect some very attentive cat eyes trained on you in wonder for the whole process. This pulled pork recipe came from William Sonoma Essentials of Slow Cooking. I am a bit dubious of a recipe that calls for barbecue sauce as an ingredient, but I guess when you are already cooking pork for hours some short cuts may be warranted. I made the pork in a Lodge dutch oven, which is quickly becoming my favorite brand.

I made the accompanying slaw, also from the William Sonoma cookbook. It is 2 kinds of shredded cabbage with grated onion and carrots. The dressing is mayo, honey, cider vinegar and celery seed. Weirdly, while I loved tasting the pork while I was shredding it; I couldn’t really bring myself to eat much of it once it was all prepared. Maybe there is only so much pork one girl can eat, but I kind of suspect it was the barbecue sauce.

I think the real lesson in all of this is that I should probably avoid shredding meat during holidays that I am spending by myself.
