What’s For Lunch? Pulled Pork and Avocado Salad

UPC’s Pulled Pork I really enjoy pulled pork. I like the beef and chicken versions of the dish too: Shredded Beef, and Jerk Chicken (as well as all of the other names for those dishes). It’s flavorful, easy to eat, and easy to re-use as a portion of another dish! […]
