When I was contacted by the people at Stubb’s, I started looking through their recipe gallery on their website. They’d given me the option to make my own recipe or one of theirs. I found SO many things that Jay and I wanted to try (note to self: Stop perusing that section of their website when you’re hungry or haven’t gone grocery shopping yet!). I’ve been making a list and checking it off. I figure summer is the perfect time to make all these delicious grilled items anyway. I decided almost right away to make “nachos” but unlike the Stubb’s recipe, I went with pulled pork, rather than shredded beef.
I think from now on, I’m putting all pulled pork on waffle fries, and topping it with cheese and extra sauce.
I INHALED this plate (and yes, I ate the whole plate all by myself). This is also sort of a nod to Peaches’ BBQ Fries (AKA “Redneck Nachos”). A friend in California had posted a picture of some she’d gotten one day, and while I’ve never had the Peaches version, I couldn’t get them out of my head. I opted for cheese instead of the seasoned sour cream, but I think that might be just as good. We’ve got plenty of leftover pork, so I can experiment a bit before Jay eats it all!
These were good enough that I was sorely tempted to take waffle fries to work with me, and make another batch–We have a full stove in the break room. Instead, I just took myself a sandwich, which was also good. Still…I’m thinking I’m going to need another bag of waffle fries pretty soon. And another pork butt. And more Stubb’s.
