1. Shredded Pork

Think of this shredded pork as pulled pork without the barbecue sauce. You cook a pork shoulder until it’s fall-part tender. Then serve it with a side of cornbread and veggies or use it to make tacos, nachos or sandwiches. It also goes great with eggs and potatoes for an easy “breakfast for dinner” meal.
