Year of the Pulled Pork

In celebration of the Chinese New Year, this past week has been filled with the flavors of China. Spicy, sweet, tangy, deliciousness. Since it is the year of the rabbit, we'll give our long-eared, furry friends immunity from the smoker (and the wok) and carry on with the pork. The spicy, sweet, tangy flavors of Southern bar-b-q, and the crunch of cabbage, carrots and pickled things mixed into a slaw are not that far off from Asian tastes.

In keeping with our "Fun With Pulled Pork" theme for February, we encourage you to head over to a Jim 'n Nick's, pick up some pulled pork and slaw from the "to go" window and put together some of our "Pulled Pork Cabbage Rolls".

Once you've picked up the pork and slaw from Jim 'n Nick's, drop by the market and get some green cabbage, hot peppers of your choosing, fresh mint and some scallions. Pull the cabbage leaves off of the head individually and rinse under water. Shake off the excess water and set aside. Slice the scallions into slivers, tear or chop some fresh mint and slice the peppers. Set these aside for garnishing. In each individual "cabbage cup" place some pulled pork, top with some of the coleslaw, drizzle with a little bit of the Jim 'n Nick's Bar-b-q sauce and then sprinkle on the scallions, mint and peppers to taste. Pick up and eat or arrange on a platter for a party! Happy New Year!
