Nov 12: Trader Joe’s Pies; Pulled Pork with Black Beans and Rice


A gray start to the say had us thinking meat pies! Foodie Philip had the Steak and Stout, while Greg had the Balti Chicken. Each pie is $3.25.


Foodies Greg stayed home to slow cook pulled pork with black beans and rice. This is a new recipe that created its own BBQ sauce, which fortunately was not too sweet, probably because we dropped the brown sugar from the recipe.

  • The 2.4 lb of Boston Butt was $21.40 from our Prather Ranch meat box, or $3.57 per serve.
  • Broth adds $1.00 or 20c per serve
  • Add $1.00 per serve for the other ingredients
  • Rice adds 33c per serve
  • Add 50c per serve for the beans and other ingredients.

Tonight’s pulled pork with its own BBQ sauce was very good. The BBQ sauce is not too sweet (our taste) but full of flavor. The pork was tender and ‘pulled’ easily. The pork is $4.77 per serve and the beans 83c per serve, for a total of $5.60 per serve.
