This pulled pork breakfast egg skillet recipe combines lightly caramelized onions and tomatoes with tender fall apart pulled pork, a handful of beans and slightly runny eggs. Talk about a great way to start the day. Gluten free and dairy free too.
I love love love pulled pork and I hadn’t had it in forever.
I mean I’m pretty sure I haven’t had pulled pork in the whole 18 months D and I have been traveling through Asia and Europe.
That’s way too long.
So when I spotted what looked like a piece of pork shoulder at a grocery store in Croatia I was determined to make some pulled pork. (Reading labeling in Croatian is no easy task I tell you).
I obsessively looked for recipes online – most of which required a slow cooker or cast iron pot and whole series of spices.
Cooking while traveling does not allow me to carry an arsenal of spices – all I’ve got to work with is salt. Yep just salt.
And naturally I have no slow cooker or cast iron pot. Most of the time I don’t even have an oven.
How was I going to make this work?
A simple standard pot would have to be sufficient. Some salt, 1 diced onion, 4 cloves of garlic, 2 cans of diced tomatoes and a cup of wine. That’s all it took to get the pulled pork I’ve been dreaming about for months.
Apparently you don’t need all the fancy equipment and half dozen spices. The pork just shines on its won. I reduced the sauce down as the perfect accompaniment.
So now that I’ve got a couple pounds of pulled pork – what to do with it? Incorporate it into breakfast, lunch and dinner of course.
Pan fry some onions and tomatoes, add in the pulled pork, a handful of beans, crack two eggs and cook on low until the eggs are almost set. Top off with some cubed feta and fresh herbs.
Perfection. Party in your mouth. Best breakfast ever.
The mix of flavors is incredible. The creamy and slightly runny eggs, with the tender fall apart pork and the lightly caramelized tomatoes and onions – hmmmmmm.
