Eggnog is a funny thing. When I first heard what actually makes up eggnog, I wasn’t too thrilled about it. Then few years ago someone gave me a homemade/fresh bottle of eggnog. It was my first time drinking eggnog and thought it wasn’t too bad. Another funny thing about eggnog is that, no one really thinks about it till around Christmas time. I know it’s a Christmasy drink but who says we can’t drink eggnog in March?
Anyways, while thinking about eggnog the other day, I came up with this crazy idea to cook with it. Majority of the recipes I found were all for sweet things but couldn’t find any savory recipes. Then the idea of cooking pork in milk came to my mind and decided to substitute milk for eggnog. I got a lot of people saying that’s just gross or it wouldn’t work. Obviously that made me more determined to try it.
So here it is people, pork butt cooked in eggnog.
