Pulled Pork Stuffed Waffles


I got this idea from an episode on "You Gotta Eat Here". There's a restaurant in Vancouver that stuffs their waffles with all kinds of protein and goodies. It was one of those things that I've always wanted to try but never had the luxury to until I got my sister this waffle machine for her birthday. Technically, I subconsciously bought it for myself since she's not much of a cook to begin with.



You can find my spice rub recipe for the pulled pork if you Click Here. But since then I have changed my method for making pulled pork. Now I either do it in a pressure cooker or roasted low and slow covered. Instead of brushing on the BBQ sauce every now and then, I just dump them all in the pot and stir around a little. Trust me...it's wayyyy easier and tastes a lot better.



Classic Belgian Waffle(10 Waffles):

 1 1/2 cups of water
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1/3 cup sugar
3 cups sifted flour
1/4 tsp salt
3 large eggs separated
1 egg white
11/2 cups milk
8 tbsp melted unsalted butter
2 tsp oil

You might be surprised to see yeast in this recipe but it's a no-fail way to make sure that the waffle rises perfectly. For this recipe, baking powder or soda just doesn't cut it.

1. Dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup of warm water with a pinch of sugar and let stand for 5 minutes until it foams.
2. Add egg yolks and one of the whites into the yeast mixture along with the remaining sugar. Mix well.
3. Add rest of the water, milk, butter, oil and blend.
4. Combine salt and flour in a separate bowl and stir to combine.
5. Stir dry and wet mixtures together until smooth.
6. Beat remaining egg whites until stiff peaks. Fold into batter and let stand for 1 hour, stiring every 15 minutes

7...Make your waffles!!!

Ladle some batter into the waffle maker, spread a thin layer of pulled pork, and ladle a touch more batter over top.

Do not over fill the machine like I did because this batter more than doubled its volume during the cooking process so it was leaking everywhere!



The pork gets nice and crispy where it pokes out from the batter and meets the griddle. If you happen to have a machine laying around, give this a try! You can make an event out of it.
