Now I'm from this out so I can say we love to have outdoor parties.
But they can be -- it.
So chef Michael Ferraro -- delicatessen is here in the studio to show -- some ways to makes some great did saving money.
But not breaking not dreaming but making killer block parties to talk to us tell us what you have here.
Well I love block parties grown up in the tristate area spent a lot of time in Long Island and and the summer is that you know it's that last celebration.
And it doesn't have to be expensive like you said.
Basically I took one ingredient which is pork shoulder.
And I turned it two different things.
It's something you can you -- -- -- time.
Pork shoulders when those cuts people not really sure what to do with it.
But super easy I mean I -- this -- -- for about six hours slow moist cooking.
I -- -- house made barbecue sauce or you can -- use your favorite one shredded did remove some of that excess fat and then I made.
Pork pulled pork buns.
And then I made pork -- So.
This taco -- here you can kind of set up -- -- cable.
People come up -- help themselves we can't the taco shells in there and people can scoop in the -- where you have say when he's ready to go here.
Right so this consulate says the lots of people don't have huge kitchen two braves for hours and hours from.
He uses local Kern yes absolutely and -- trying to do something like that basically you would take the pork shoulder to trim off all the excess fat -- -- and -- -- -- And pamper and whenever dry -- you'd like Syria on your stove top men at a -- slow cooker.
Add in a bunch of vegetables.
I mean -- -- celery throw some -- in there some fresh herbs.
Cover about three quarters of the way in a stock.
Cover it said it on low.
Four to six hours later very very slow it's gonna be so Maurice and tender so to shred right up or are.
Really easy to do I mean really seems like it did the big method to it when there's not really.
Winning a lot of little things that you know port could be a little more expensive and say -- -- -- -- why is it a more cost effective.
-- to use for a block party well what he's here's the pork shoulder.
It's -- economy that is longer to cook so therefore I think less people could get to the prices lower on it but it's super flavorful.
And it's what's used for port funds the war or pork tacos when you got pulled pork beef and pork shoulder.
And there's so much flavor in that so it's a great cost effective.
Cut to use pretty much just do -- little research on it how to raise it -- future slow cooker.
And it's it's one of my -- favorite cuts of pork for sure.
Right so let -- let's let's be honest everybody loves to drink at an outdoor party.
