25 Porkalicious Recipes for Super Bowl Sunday

Red 32! Red 32!

Hut! Hut!

I have no idea what that means, but I do know that it has to do with football. I also know that this Super Bowl Sunday, while the Patriots wide receiver  Wes Welker makes his mooooves on the field, millions of Americans making their own moves at buffet tables across the country.

In the next few days we’ll spend close to $60 million on football-friendly fare such as guacamole and chips, BBQ ribs, pizza, and beer. And here at Pork, Knife & Spoon, pork lovers have the home field advantage. From root beer pulled pork and Asian pork meatballs to pork belly sliders and bacon-topped cupcakes, we’ve got all the porkalicious recipes you’ll need to score a touchdown this weekend.

  1. We’re cheering for the Giants here, so we practice saying “Omaha, Omaha, hut, hut” – Eli’s pre-snap call. With two football-crazed boys by my side, I can’t help but know those things, though I’m certain that brain space could be used for something more useful.

    What a fantastic round-up of pork recipes. Thanks so much for including my lettuce wraps.

  2. Susan – what a nice round-up – I see several things I would add to my repertoire. The big stretch for me would be including bacon in a dessert so I might just try that. I also made posole this week for the first time – slow cooking some pork in the oven and adding it to the comforting tomato, bean, hominy base. Fantastic new addition to our soup/pork recipes for our house and the pork was great for making tacos as well. Thanks for including my carnitas post!
