A trick that makes bacon on pork shoulder extra special and delish.
Moving away from the typical way of cooking and serving bacon, this bacon dish will make you want more. And if you know some people who won’t eat bacon but would still eat pork, then this recipe is what you need to prepare for them.
Actually, I was just looking around for a good Valentine’s day recipe when I came across this. I am just planning to stay at home for that and I thought t would be nice to have a nice meal prepared for me and my family to celebrate Valentine’s day. And this recipe is actually a winner. I may not be a dish that screams out fine cuisine but it is certainly something that both my kids and hubby will totally enjoy.
This recipe is very easy to make and when served, those eating won’t eating think that they are eating bacon. And might I say, the flavor is something that will make you go back for more, and I mean way more. So make sure that you are not on a diet when having this.
