A blogger on my favorites list is Olga's Flavor Factory, so when I saw her post about Makaroni Po Flotski I knew it was happening! Makaroni Po Flotski translates to Navy macaroni. It was a frequent dish for the Russian navy when out to sea and rations were difficult. It eventually caught on for home cooks for the same reasons. This is a great way to use us leftover pork, and makes for an easy dinner even if you cook pork from scratch, since it can be made the night before.
4 c. cooked pork
1/2 lb. rotini pasta, cooked
4 Tbsp. butter
3 large onions, chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste
Apple cider vinegar and sour cream to serve
Take the cold cooked pork and place it in a food processor. Process until the pork is shredded pretty fine but not a paste. Set aside.
Heat the butter and onions in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute for 10, stirring frequently. Cook until the onions are softened and starting to brown.
Turn the heat to high and add the pork. Cook without stirring often, you want to pork to brown in spots.
Once the pork is browned a bit add the pasta and stir, gently, to combine and heat. Taste and adjust salt and pepper as needed.
Serve with vinegar and sour cream.
