Pulled Pork Benedict (Part II of the Pulled Pork Party)

We really hope you made the Drunken Pulled Pork or else you’re going to find this recipe a bit hard to complete. Its part two of the pulled pork party, because when you make 4 lbs of pulled pork, you usually have leftovers. We came up with the perfect way to get rid of them. Pulled Pork Benedict. Its served on top of cornmeal biscuits and topped with a spicy hot hollandaise sauce. The goat cheese helps cut the spice and pumps up the flavors of the dish. We chose Sunday Morning by Renegade Brewing Co. as the beer to serve because we think this is a meal best eaten as breakfast for dinner. Be prepared to take a food nap after this one.

Ingredients:

Cornmeal Pancakes:

¾ cup flour

¾ cup yellow corn meal

¼ tsp salt

1 ½ tbsp baking powder

1 tbsp sugar

1 cup whole milk

1 egg

2 tablespoons of butter

 

Spicy Hollandaise:

Original Hollandaise recipe +

–       ½ tsp Tabasco

–       ¼ tsp paprika

–       ½ tsp kosher salt

 

Left over pulled pork from the Drunken Pulled Pork

6-8 eggs for frying

Goat Cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, corn meal, salt, baking powder, sugar). In a separate small bowl, mix together the milk and then egg, and then pour it over the dry ingredients as you mix it all together. Melt the butter and pour that in last. Voila! Pancake mix!  For the correct size cakes, pour in a little less than ¼ cup at a time into a well-buttered pan on medium heat and cook until golden brown on the outside.

After the pancakes are cooked, make the hollandaise sauce according to these directions. Also, fry up a few eggs (one for each pancake) – however many you fry up depends on how many people you’re feeding.

Once you have created yourself a pancake mountain, take one at a time and top with goat cheese, then pulled pork, then a fried egg, and finally spicy hollandaise sauce. Boom. Serve with Sunday Morning by Renegade Brewing Company.

Beer Pairing: Sunday Morning by Renegade Brewing Company

If it smells like coffee and tastes like coffee, is it coffee? No. Its Sunday Morning, a coffee infused strong ale by Renegade Brewing Company. The description on the bottle is 100% accurate. It is a super strong ale with coffee flavors in the end. Unlike a coffee stout, this beer doesn’t have all those chocolatey malts and complex roasted flavors. It’s straightforward and that’s why we like it. Coffee and ale, the perfect thing to serve with breakfast for dinner.
