We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

We saw Rick Bayless do this recipe on PBS- Slow Roasted Achiote Pork in Banana leaves or Yucatan Pig(whole) in a pit. I thought,wow the Egg mimics his pit -so last nite tried it on a smaller scale.It is kind of a Mexican style pulled Pork-however it is steamed, not roasted. I used a pork leg,next time I will try a shoulder. Achiote paste pureed with lime juice,placed on the roast and put into my dutch oven surrounded by banana leaves. I slow roasted it at 250-300 for 6 hours. Served it with side of guacomole,roasted serrano and garlic salsa,pickled red onions,fresh tortillas done on the egg,and chipotle black beans with wilted spinch and masa gnocchi. It was great!!!!![p]P2150070.jpgP2150070-1.jpgP2150072-1.jpgP2150071-1.jpgP2150075.jpgP2150076.jpg
