Made From Scratch Tuesday 9/13

In case you missed my post on our new fire pit, make sure to check it out and find out how you can win one of your own!

Tonight for dinner, we had braised pork shoulder with wild rice and broccoli. DELICIOUS! And the best part, it's super easy!

To start out, give the pork shoulder steaks a good rub. Like a deep tissue massage for the pork. I used a mixture of paprika, cumin, salt and pepper.

 Then pour a little bit of olive oil in a cast iron skillet and get it hot. Sear each side of the meat.
Next, add in an onion and a couple of cloves of garlic. Then pour some stock over the whole thing.
Bake, covered, in a 300 degree oven for an hour and half to two hours. The meat should be tender, but not stringy.
Now, I couldn't let all that gorgeous gravy go to waste, so I made wild rice in it!

Now, it's time to link up some of those great dishes you make from scratch!
Here are the rules:
1. You can link up as many posts as you'd like.
2. My only content rule is it has to be made from scratch.
3. The post you link up MUST CONTAIN A RECIPE!
4. If you want to put my button somewhere, that'd be cool. You can grab the code for the Made From Scratch Tuesday button on the top right of my sidebar.
