I was visiting my friend Joelle, and if you want to find some amazing recipes make sure you visit her here.
Joelle posted a recipe for Italian Beef Sandwiches. This recipe sounded so good, and I wanted to make it NOW.
I kind of felt like a person on that investment commercial. You know, the one where the people are screaming, "IT'S MY MONEY, AND I NEED IT NOW!"
I wanted to scream, "I LOVE FOOD, AND I NEED IT NOW!" when I viewed the ingredients for Joelle's Italian Beef Sandwiches.
The only problem I was facing; I didn't have any beef, but I had just slow roasted a pork roast the day before.
That little light bulb above my head shown brightly. Pork in place of beef.
I can do this.
Then the farther I read into Joelle's recipe, I found out that I didn't have any dry Italian dressing mix.
I am not ready to throw in the towel.
I can still make this work.
I dug through my frig and found a little bit of onion, and my fresh garlic I always have handy by the stove. I sliced the onion into strips, and finely chopped three cloves of garlic. I love garlic!
The more garlic, the less vampires....
I used 1 cup of my left-over pork broth. Never, never, never throw out broth from a roast. I always keep mine and use it for soup or freeze it.
The pork broth went into a deep skillet along with the garlic, onion, and 1 1/2 TBS Italian seasoning.
When I put in the 1 1/2 TBS Italian seasoning I thought, "Oh my goodness, I really messed this up."
But I continued....
The Italian seasoning was very strong while I was simmering the onion and garlic. I simmered it for about 5 minutes to soften the onion and garlic.
After five minutes I added the 4 to 6 cups of shredded pork. I heated it through and served it opened faced on toast. The Italian seasoning amount was just right.
This is one of those recipes that makes you long for something more....
I wish I would have had some hamburger buns or sub buns....darn!!
But it was very good on toast.

"Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do. Suppose someone falls down. Then his friend can help him up. But suppose the man who falls down doesn't have anyone to help him up. Then feel sorry for him! Or suppose two people lie down together. Then they'll keep warm. But how can one person keep warm alone? One person could be overpowered. But two people can stand up for themselves. And a rope made out of three cords isn't easily broken." Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12
