Woo, pork II

Joel DiPippa is back at the stove.

Continuing on the ways to break down a pork loin for home consumption by a single guy, we now move to a makeshift calzone!

The red sauce from Woo">the previous entry was sitting in the fridge calling my name. I took about a pound of the pork loin and made a quick fake-sausage by means of a 30-minute marinade with pepper, red pepper flakes, fennel, some salt, garlic, and vinegar.  After mincing the pork by hand (I actually have no food processor or grinder), I browned the "sausage" while preparing the rest of the calzone.  I had picked up a tube of bake-at-home french bread (impulse buy ... I wanted to try this improvised calzone idea), and rolled it out a bit thinner than it wanted to be before piling in a respectable amount of sausage, red sauce, and cheese on the oil brushed interior.  After baking nicely, I threw some more cheese on top ...

Next in the Woo, Pork series, the veggies return with a vengeance!

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
