Luscious Pork Sandwich Ideas

Luscious Pork Sandwich Ideas
When I was growing up, pork was thought of as a fatty meat. Today's pork is much leaner, especially if you buy it from a local source. Small family farms raise pigs, since they don't take up as much room as cows. If you are fortunate, you can buy a whole or half hog from a family farmer. You pay the farmer for the meat, and then you pay the butcher shop for processing. The farmer delivers the pig to the butcher. They process it. You wind up with superior meat for less money than you would pay in the store.

Recently, we bought a half of a hog. Other than cost, there are several advantages to doing this. First, I do not like to eat meat that was never allowed any freedom. I saw how this pig lived on the farm. I know that it was fed a healthy diet, and it didn't have any antibiotics in the feed. Next, I know where it was processed and that they use humane methods. Finally, I can get the pig processed the way that I want it.

We didn't want a bunch of ham. We have a small amount of cured meat, including bacon, ham hocks and shanks, and their delicious 4 cheese brats. We have ribs for cooking out. We also have both thin and thick cut pork chops. The rest of the meat is ground pork and the Mound City Butcher Block's tasty sausage. For a little over $300, we have almost 80 pounds of delicious, succulent meat. You can bet that some of it will be tasty sandwiches. Here are some pork sandwich ideas.
