First, it just seems like we're suddenly eating a lot of pork, because I didn't post a recipe last week. I invented a spot-on-delicious mostly-paleo sesame chicken and fried rice recipe, but I am still working to perfect the sauce-to-chicken ratio, so you will just have to wait. Trust me tho, you will be glad that you did.
The idea for this Pepperoncini Pulled Pork recipe came to me this weekend when I was flipping through my favorite cookbooks, searching for inspiration. I realized that although I love appetizers (to the point that I planned a Christmas party around my desire to eat them, and then served a completely different set of finger-foods on Christmas Eve), I otherwise never make any. The small volume and sometimes-long preparation required to make good appetizers doesn't really fit into my weekly hot-and-a-lot meal planning theme.
I was brainstorming ways to get the flavor of my favorite Christmas Eve appetizer without the effort, and tah-dah! this recipe was born.
