aunt squishy's kalua fusion

a recipe by
Lynsee Gilbert

This recipe is a unique reimagining of Kalua Pork combined with an equally unique reimagining of Moroccan Mujadara. It's flavorful, filling, and well rounded. Tip: I like to sprinkle each serving with a pinch of feta cheese, and garnish with thinly sliced green onions and chopped fresh parsley.
