Apple-Bacon Slaw:

  1. Chop bacon into small pieces and set aside. Combine cabbage, jicama, sweet onion, jalapeño, and celery in a medium size salad bowl. Stir in the chopped bacon, celery seed, and black pepper. Pour the seasoned rice wine vinegar over the salad and mix. Place in fridge until serving time. When ready to serve, cut apple into very thin slices and mix into the slaw.

Salmon Creek Farms Perfect Pork Roast:

  1. Take roast out of package and dry off with paper towels. Place roast on a large plate. Mix together all meat rub ingredients in a medium size bowl. Sprinkle all sides of roast generously with the meat rub and pat the spices on to the meat. Cover the roast with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours. Turn grill on high heat to start and sear all the sides of the roast.
  2. Turn one of the burners on the grill off and keep the roast over that burner. Turn other burner (or burners) to low heat and maintain a temperature of 300 degrees for the rest of the cooking process. Cook roast for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, turning every 30 minutes on the grill. Internal temperature should be 145 degrees. Place the roast on a cookie sheet or tray and cover with foil. Allow roast to sit for 30 minutes before serving. Slice roast and serve with Apple-Bacon Slaw and enjoy the great flavors of Idaho!

Alternate Cooking Method:

  1. Pork roast can also be seared in a frying pan and placed in a slow-cooker on a low heat setting for approximately 4 hours or until internal temperature reads 145 degrees.
