  • 10 slices of leftover pork loin - sliced 1/8" thin
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce - prepared or homemade
  • 5 poached eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Salsa Borracha optional


Preheat your pan and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

  • Slice polenta into 1/4" thick rounds. Lay on a cookie sheet and season both sides with salt and pepper. Working in batches, add each round to the pan and cook 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and return to cookie sheet until ready to use.

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees

  • Slice leftover pork loin into thin slices, about 1/8" thick or as thin as you can get them. Lay out on a baking sheet and season, each side, with salt, pepper, and barbecue sauce. Place in your oven for 10-15 minutes until warmed through.
  • Poach five eggs to serve on top if your polenta bombs


  • Start by placing a polenta round on your plate and adding a slice of leftover pork loin, folded in half, atop the polenta. Alternate layers, ending with polenta on top. Top with a poached egg.
  • Serve with Salsa Borracha or any salsa verde and ENJOY!
