I ran into my local grocery store the other day just to grab a few items, and of course the “apron’s man” was cooking up a storm and was handing out samples. How could I not give his recipe a try? I tried it and immediately grabbed the recipe card and began filling my basket with all the items I needed to make this recipe. If you aren’t familiar with arepas–you need to be! An arepa is a flat corn patty stuffed with a mild white cheese (normally mozzarella). I always get them when we go to craft shows, and whenever we visit the fair! Arepas are my guilty pleasure, for sure! As the apron’s man carefully crafted my sample I read through the recipe card. It looked easy, but something caught me off guard. They were using a packaged fully cooked pork roast in au jus. Now, I’m not going to lie. I don’t think I’ve ever purchased any of these fully cooked meats just heat it up in minutes and you have a hot meal on the table. I was a little hesitant until I tasted the dish. I was amazed that the pork came from a package and that it was already cooked!
