Hot Pork Sundae

Serves 4
Hot Pork Sundae


  • 1 tablespoon bacon grease 
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups reserved pork cooking liquid (from shredded pork recipe)
  • 16 ounces shredded pork (see BONUS recipe below)
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 cups prepared mashed potatoes 
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Cherry tomatoes 


For the gravy, melt the bacon grease in a medium saucepan. Whisk in the flour. Cook, stirring, until the flour is a medium brown. Stir in the pork cooking liquid and whisk until combined. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until reduced by half, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the pork. Season with salt, as needed. To assemble the sundaes, place a large scoop of hot mashed potatoes into an individual serving bowl. Top with a generous scoop of the pork gravy. Sprinkle a couple tablespoons of cheese over top; garnish with a dollop of sour cream and a tomato.
