Beef n Pork Roast Debris
Cooking Beef and Pork
together in a big ole' pot makes for the best gravy ever!
Very simple ingredients and easy to prepare, but, takes a while to
cook. If it's for supper, you'll need to start the pot that
morning. When I make this for lunch (football games!), I'll get
everything in the pot the night before and let it simmer on low.
*Crock pot works great!
Perfect for Po Boys (got
napkins?), or serve over rice, mashed potatoes, homemade
fries or grits soufflé'.
(Use any roast you like or get a couple on
sale. You're going to cook it beyond recognition anyway)
*3 lb. Beef Roast
*3 lb. Pork Roast
(Season each roast and pat-on flour. Set aside
while you get the other stuff ready)
*one large Yellow Onion (chop small)
*one large Bell Pepper (chop small)
*1/2 bunch Celery (chop small)
*1/2 bunch Green Onion (chop small)
*1/2 cup fresh chopped Parsley
*one tbsp. minced Garlic
*2 Bay Leaves
*one can of RoTel
*2 cups Beef Broth
(If I'm making this for Po Boys, I'll add a chopped
Jalapeno to the pot)
*Roux: 1/4 cup Olive Oil, 1/4 cup Flour
*Seasonings: Salt, Black Pepper, White Pepper,
Creole Seasoning (your favorite), Worcestershire
a large iron pot, make a medium-dark roux. Add the chopped
vegetables, parsley and garlic to the cooked roux. Gradually
stir-in the broth and rotel. Add a little water and bring
heat up to slow boil for a bit. Use your seasoning skills to
make the first layer of 'tastes'. Add each roast
to the pot, bay leaves and enough water to cover. Season again.
Bring heat up to boil then cut to simmer (lid-on) for 4 hours.
Ok, skim-off any fat from
the top. Taste to add any more seasoning. Add more
liquids if you like and leave pot uncovered to cook for a few more
hours (3 or 4 hours is good ... remember we're making
"debris"). That's why if you don't have a good iron
pot that you can trust, a crock pot works really good.
I reckon that's it!
Dress your Po Boy bread and
lay some fries in there, some cheese and cover with your debris. Your
guests will run out the house screaming, hal-a-lou-ya! Is
it KICK-OFF, yet!?!
