Because it’s one of the menus we’re most often asked to serve, we decided on Pulled Pork with Potato Salad and our Mighty Meaty Ranch Baked Beans for today’s second-to-last Tuesday Lunch. Again they were a hit, and we thought you might like to try them out at home! Note: as always, our chefs love to tweak recipes… the BBQ Dude made them even mightier and meatier by adding a little of the pulled pork to the baked beans. Be creative!
We have just one remaining week of Tuesday Lunch at The Culinary Center of Kansas City. Don’t miss out. We’ll be serving up our final menu from 11:30 -1:00 on Tuesday, September 27. But never fear – while Tuesday Lunch is going away, our great cooking classes, private events and catering services are still going strong!
