Pulled Pork Nachos are a great way of using any extra pulled pork you may have left over. They’re easily customized, and can be made with as many or as few ingredients as you want.
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. Some diced tomatoes and pickled jalapenos would be fantastic on these as well.
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.
Place the pork butt in a slow cooker, and top with the Hickory Bourbon sauce. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or until the meat is falling apart.
Remove the pork from the slow cooker, and shred with two forks. Return to the slow cooker and keep warm while preheating the oven.
Cook the waffles fries according to the package directions. Remove from the oven, and preheat the broiler.
Spread the fries into 4 even piles. Top each with 1/2 - 3/4 C pulled pork. Top each with 1/4 C cheese. Place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Serve with additional Stubb's sauce, if desired.
