The good folks over at Serious Eats posted a delicious piece on building a beautiful pork roll creation called a pork roll Rachel.

So in this recipe, the pastrami is replaced with delicious New Jersey pork roll. Go ahead and check this out over on Serious Eats. I will be building one of these this week for sure.

Saturday morning brought me the venerable Asbury Park institution known as Frank’s. Frank’s has been around for over 50 years so they know what they’re doing. Serving up big breakfast sandwiches and full breakfasts to the locals at a fair price. Guess what I ordered? (more…)
It’s 2012! It’s a different world from when our fathers grew up. Our pork roll pac men can hang out in the fry pan and do whatever comes natural, right? I guess it depends on whose kitchen they are in.
Not for the faint of heart! This morning’s pork roll dee-lite was Taylor pork roll and sharp cheddar on an english muffin topped with…WASABI SAUCE???!!! Yes, that’s right folks, in all its artificially green goodness (with a nod to Yellow 5 and Blue 1).
