New York Pulled Pork Farro Bowl Recipe

New York Pulled Pork Farro Bowl

New York Pulled Pork Farro Bowl

Slow cooked and pulled pork shoulder over farro

This application is great for a large cut of meat, beef or pork, shoulder or butt.  It is great to make if you are meal prepping for a week of meals or if you have a large group over for dinner.  I like to serve this in bowls, usually over farro with a bed of greens or homemade slaw.  It also serves as a great taco meat.

Farro a great substitute for rice, it is my go-to over quinoa.  I like to use it as the base for my bowls.
