Spicy Pulled Pork Fried Eggs
After I made a delicious batch of slow cooker pulled pork, I found myself with a significant amount of leftovers. While I had already made some mouthwatering pulled pork tacos and a refreshing pulled pork, cabbage, and arugula salad, I wanted to come up with a new recipe that would be perfect for a healthy breakfast. That's when I thought of making spicy pulled pork fried eggs.
What makes this recipe so great is that it's naturally low-carb, keto, paleo and Whole30-friendly. As someone who tries to eat a healthy and balanced diet, I love recipes that are both nutritious and delicious. And with the protein-packed pulled pork combined with the spicy flavors of the dish, it's a great way to switch up your regular breakfast routine. To make this recipe, I simply heat up some leftover pulled pork in a skillet until it's heated through.
Then I crack a couple of eggs on top and cook them to my liking. I prefer my eggs over easy so that the runny yolk can mix with the spicy pulled pork, creating a delicious and satisfying meal. Not only is this recipe easy to make, but it's also a great way to use up leftover pulled pork in a creative and tasty way. And because it's so high in protein, it's perfect for anyone looking to fuel their day and stay full until lunchtime.
Tips for the Fried Eggs
As someone who loves cooking, I’m frequently asked how I make perfect fried eggs in my stainless steel pan. My secret is to fry them low and slow, and to use the right fat. I prefer using bacon grease that I have previously rendered from cooking bacon in the oven, but you can use butter, ghee, avocado oil, or any other fat you prefer.
- To make the perfect fried eggs, I start by heating the pan on low and melting the fat.
- Then, I gently crack the eggs into the fat and let them cook for 2-3 minutes.
- The low heat ensures that the eggs cook evenly without burning or sticking to the pan.
- To make sure that the egg whites on top are fully cooked, I add a lid for the last 30 seconds of cooking.
I love my fried eggs with crispy edges and a runny yolk. With this technique, you can achieve the same delicious result every time. Plus, it’s an easy and quick breakfast that’s perfect for busy mornings.
How to Assembly the Spicy Pulled Pork Fried Eggs
When making my Spicy Pulled Pork Fried Eggs recipe, I have learned a few helpful tips that make the process go smoothly. First, it's important to have all your ingredients prepped and ready to go before you start cooking. This way, you won't risk overcooking your eggs while you are scrambling to slice jalapeños or warm up your pulled pork. To save time, I like to have my pulled pork on a separate plate and ready to go.
I also slice my jalapeños and green onions beforehand, so they are ready to be added to the pan. When cooking the eggs, I follow my method for frying eggs in a stainless steel pan - low and slow. Once the eggs have cooked for about 30 seconds, I add the pulled pork and jalapeños to the pan. The heat from the pan will warm up the pork and peppers as the eggs finish cooking.
After removing the eggs from the pan, I sprinkle the green onions on top and finish the dish with a drizzle of hot sauce and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. With these tips in mind, you'll have a delicious and healthy breakfast ready in no time.
Can I use a non-stick pan instead of a stainless steel pan?
Yes, you can use a non-stick pan if that's what you prefer. Just be sure to use a heat-safe spatula so you don't scratch the non-stick coating.
Can I use a different kind of meat instead of pulled pork?
Yes, you can use any kind of cooked meat you have on hand. Shredded chicken, beef, or turkey would all work well.
The spicy pulled pork fried eggs recipe is a delicious and easy way to use up leftover pulled pork. It's a low-carb, keto, paleo and Whole30 friendly breakfast option that's packed with protein and flavor. By using a stainless steel pan and frying the eggs low and slow, you can achieve crispy edges and a runny yolk. And by following some simple preparation tips, you can ensure that the dish comes together quickly and easily.
