Jul 15: Soutzoukakia in Rustic Panini Rolls; Braised Pork Shoulder with Sweet Corn and Black Bean Salad

Lunch

For lunch we finished some par baked panini rolls and stuffed them with the Soutzoukakia and some of the tomato sauce, along with a slice of Swiss cheese. Messy but so good.

  • The Soutzoukakia and sauce come to $2.12
  • Swiss slices are 12 for $3.99 or 33c per serve
  • Par-baked roll is 55c.

Lunch today was great for $3.00 per serve.

Dinner

We have been planning pulled pork since the Pork Shoulder arrived in our Keller Crafted meat box this month. We keep it simple, braising on a bed of onion and garlic cloves with chicken stock.

After three hours it was perfect and pulled apart beautifully. We served with a fresh corn – cut right off the cob into the salad – and “spicy” black bean salad. No-one noticed the spice, but with the bell pepper and shallot it was a perfect, sharp foil to the pulled pork.

  • The pork shoulder is $18.94 and we’ll get six serves, or $3.16 per serve
  • Onion and garlic adds 10c per serve
  • Chicken stock is $3.99 a quart, and with one cup used 17c per serve
  • The corn was 50c and we’ll get four serves of the salad, or 13c per serve
  • The beans were 99c for a can, or 25c per serve
  • The bell pepper was $1.32 or 33c per serve
  • Add 15c for shallot and seasoning.

A really well balanced meal withe the pickled onion on top providing a sour crunch against the pulled pork, balanced with the freshness of the salad, for $4.29 per serve.
