READY IN: 72hrs 10mins
Recipe by Malriah

New Orleans original red beans and rice meat ingredient. I can't eat beans with out it! Sometimes I totally leave out the sausage and put in extra pickle meat! Cook time includes refrigeration time.

Delicious! We love anything pickled, and this pork was yummy by itself or over rice. I took some, chopped it up, added Carolina BBQ sauce and made sandwiches. It was great! Kari, thanks for a very good recipe I'll be making often.
