Another FLAT and KC Masterpiece Pulled Pork Sandwich

by Joanne on July 18, 2011

It was a good 15 mile run on Saturday followed by a not the best 14 mile bike ride in the afternoon. I got a flat. That would be my FOURTH flat on the back tire within 8 months. That would be my 4 to Ted’s NONE! Is someone trying to tell me something?!!! Frustrated!

I think I’ll do best to keep my bike on the trainer and leave the out door riding to Ted. In any event, we did get to enjoy the Greater New York scenery by riding around the lake in Cazenovia.

We started our ride from the park on East Lake Road

and followed the route for Ted’s August Triathlon in Cazenovia.  It was hilly and technical (maybe not if you’re a Tour de France rider).

On the way back, my left calf cramped up something WICKED!  I was trying to cruise on the flats and slight declines but my bike was slow.

We eventually had to stop an give my calf a stretch.  Starting up again, Ted was behind.  We were about a mile from the car when he says “Hold up”.

We stopped.  Ted utters “SON OF A GUN!  You got another FLAT?!!!”  *As we were driving into Caz, we went under a train stopped on a railroad track.  I thought to myself, “that’s bad luck”.  Then proceeded to talk myself out of those silly superstitions.  As I was walking the bike to the car, I knew my superstitious beliefs were VERIFIED!

We put the bikes on the Denali, not feeling much like a swim in the lake at this point (it was 5:30 pm).  Ted suggested we stop for water at the convenience store down the road but I had my thoughts on other things.

A cool, crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc and a light meal at The Brae Loc.   What could be better?!

In the end, it was a tough but good bike ride since I love challenging myself when I’m tired, the long run then the bike ride made me feel like I really accomplished something.  The wine was fantastic and the food…AMAZING!  We started with a Margarita Pizza (fresh tomatoes, Buffalo Mozzarella, and fresh basil leaves on a homemade flat bread crust), side salads with mixed greens and trimmed with mandarin oranges and cranberries.  For the main meal, Ted had a grilled chicken sandwich with fries and I had Norwegian Salmon.  What a meal!  What a day!

Sunday– day off (family walk) and Monday – 11 mile run (6 on the treadmill with 3 at tempo and 5 outside, easy).  My legs were still tired from Saturday.  Legs and Abs in the PM.

Foodbuzz did it again. They sent another delicious product for us to try.

KC Masterpiece BUFFALO “HOT” Marinade.

What a great day to make pulled pork for Ted and his friend Rock.

Serves 6 -8

· 5 lb pork tenderloin

· 16 oz KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade

· 10 oz Cranberry Apple Chutney

· 1/2 cup Brown sugar

· ½ cup Red wine

Mix the marinade and chutney. This will make about 3 cups. Pour 2 cups over the tenderloins. Cover and allow to sit in the fridge overnight.

Add 1/4 cup of brown sugar to the remaining marinade and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Transfer the pork tenderloins out of the marinade into a clean baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar on top. Cover and put into the oven IMMEDIATELY reducing heat to 300 F. Allow to cook about 4 hours or until it pulls apart easily with a fork.

Shred the pork and put into a clean dish. Add about ¼ cup of the juice from the cooking pan.

Add the remaining marinade and red wine. Cook at 300 for one more hour.

Let the meat eaters dig in.

The marinade was perfect for this type of dish.  Unfortunately I missed out since I used the entire bottle on the meat dish. Next time, KC Masterpiece Marinade will be used on my own personal vegetarian dish.  Watch for that!

    Have had a combined total of about 10 flat tires since April – I feel for you with the tire. It is so annoying! Pretty ride, though 😀

      Apple chutney is a great idea to put in pulled pork! I’ll have to remember that!
      Jay and I are always so scared we’re going to get glat tires. Knock on wood, it hasn’t happened yet….

        Now all I want to eat is a pork sandwich (and then go on a ten mile run!). You inspire good things! Thank you for sharing, sweet friend. I hope you had a great start to your week. Much love!

          So sorry about the calf and tire, having bad days sucks 🙁

          I tried a pulled pork sandwich for the first time this past weekend after my race, they had food vendors there and I tried the pulled pork and it was quite good. I may try making it myself one day!
