Oh my gosh this is one delicious dinner. I know, I know, I say that about all the food I put up here. But just know I make plenty of meals that aren’t blog worthy. So when you do a get a dinner recipe shared here, you must KNOW that I find it worthwhile!

As if the shredded pork wasn’t delicious enough on it’s own, combined with the corn muffins and broccoli mango slaw it makes a very stunning and tasty dinner! A dinner that is staying in our rotation!

If you’re interested in making your own corn muffins, check out THIS recipe, it makes 30 muffins, but they are perfect to freeze (and take out when you need a couple)!
