Pulled Pork Breakfast Burrito w/ QView

Discussion in 'Pork' started by bbqgeekess, Apr 8, 2014.

  1. This breakfast burrito with fried-to-a-crisp barbecued pulled pork has lots of Maillard reaction going on, a hint of bacony flavor along with all that BBQ'd pork goodness--makes for one delicious breakfast burrito!  You have to try this if you haven't before--I guarantee you'll love it!

    Fry up the leftover barbecued pulled pork in a tablespoon of two of hot oil (light olive oil, lard, peanut oil, etc.) until it is crispy all over.

    Push it aside in the pan, add a little butter and scramble up some eggs to large curds (1 to 1 1/2 eggs per breakfast burrito).

    Gently combine the crispy pulled pork with the large curd scrambled eggs. Add shredded cheese (such as sharp cheddar and mozzarella) and fold that in as well.

    Throw in a warmed white flour tortilla (I heat mine on my gas burner) and roll up.

  3. Thanks!  Yeah, e.g. Maillard reaction is responsible for the the flavor of a yummy well seared steak.

    That looks awesome.    

    Wonder how it would be without the eggs?

  6. I'm sure it'd be delicious, but then I couldn't call it a breakfast burrito :)  I really love the texture and flavor of the buttery eggs mixed with with it all though.

    I do make shack attack sauced barbecued pulled pork burritos all the time, with mozerella & salsa verde.  That's stellar as well.

    We cant have eggs in the house.
     
  8. I wouldn't shy away from that! It looks really good  [​IMG]
     
  9. I guess if you put some hash browns in with it, you could call it a breakfast burrito still :)

    So someone is allergic I gather.  I think I recall it was your son?  Is he allergic to both egg yolks and egg whites?

    Hrm mabye some deep fried diced tofu in there as well?  It has kind of an eggy texture.

    I don't have any allergy against eggs but I just don't care for them. I find the texture bothers me. When a recipe calls for scrambled eggs, I substitute a cheese sauce (butter, flour, shredded cheese, dry mustard and a dash of Tabasco). Even people who like eggs like my breakfast burritos, stratas, etc.

    Oh my goodness that looks good, and a breakfast burrito is what we always took out early with us when bird hunting....... We never had Pulled pork in them though..... That' looks awesome.

    Great looking breakfast.

    Not a huge egg fan either. I would add small diced potatoes or even some pento beans with a fresh salsa.....in place of the eggs.

    Love me some mallard reaction......:biggrin:
