Broadly adapted from an Epicurious recipe

Thinking about what to make for this Sunday’s dinner. I suggested Coca-Cola pork. This idea was well received, so I started looking up recipes and sides to go with it.

Karl’s Leftovers: Venezuelan Pernil Summer Rolls (Pulled Pork)

Sunday, we had Venezuelan pernil arepas and South American slaw for dinner.  The question is what do I do with the leftover pork, cabbage salad, and tomato slices for a weekday meal? If I was just by myself, I would go for mixing the meat and tomatoes into a savory rice dish—something that Jan would instantly describe as “too heavy!”

Karl’s Venezuelan Pernil Arapas

A while ago, Jan went to Napa and came back raving about Pica Pica’s arepas. She demanded that I learn how to make these make these South American pocket breads. I did my best, based only on her description and what I could find on the internet. Last week, we went up to San Francisco and I actually got to try one of Pica Pica’s arepas.

Karl’s Venezuelan Arepas Rumberas (arepas with pulled pork)

Jan had been going on about the stuffed arepas that she had had at Pica Pica.  You can fill these corn bread pockets with almost anything. I want to make my filling Venezuelan, but this was for a weekday meal, so I did not want to start from scratch.
