Recipe Box, BBQ Pork & Corn Torta & Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

Our favorite go to meal is pork butt, also known as Boston butt,  cooked on the grill.  It’s easy to prep, all it needs is a good seasoned rub patted all over it, then put it on the grill, low and slow, and go about your day




It’s a WIN WIN, everybody likes it and there’s always lots of leftovers


BBQ pork


Here’s a great way to make the leftovers a star


torta ingredients


Make a torta by layering corn, green onions, pork, tortillas, BBQ sauce and a little cheese


BBQ pork torta

A torta is a Spanish or Mexican version of a sandwich, using round flat tortillas rather than bread.  I adapted this recipe from  Cooking in Stilettos, Pulled Pork Torta


BBQ torta


You can assemble it ahead of time, refrigerate and bake it later


BBQ pork & corn torta


Garnish with a sprinkle of cheese and green onions after baking, and cut it into wedges like a pie

BBQ Pork & Corn Torta

  • Servings: 4-6
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

4 cups cooked pulled pork*

1-2 ears corn, cooked and cut from the cob

3-4 green onions chopped

1 cup grated cheese, cheddar or Mexican blend

4 large flour tortillas

olive oil

BBQ sauce

Grease a large round baking dish or line it with parchment {for easy torta removal after baking}.

Spread a layer of sauce on one tortilla and place it in dish.  Top with 1/2 of pork and drizzle with more sauce. Top with another tortilla.  Top second tortilla with 3/4 of the onions and corn and sprinkle with 2/3 cup cheese.  Top this with another tortilla.  Place remaining pork on tortilla and drizzle with more sauce.  Top with final tortilla and brush or spray top with olive oil.  Cover and refrigerate before baking.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake torta, covered for 30 minutes.  Remove cover and continue to bake for 15-30 minutes, until torta is heated through.  Garnish with reserved onions and cheese.  Carefully lift torta out of dish and place on cutting board. Cut into wedges to serve.

*BBQ Pork Butt: 

Coat a pork butt with a BBQ seasoning rub and cook it low and slow on an outdoor grill until done.  Cooking time will depend on the size of your meat and the temperature of your grill.  Use a meat thermometer to check, pork is ready for slicing at 160-170 degrees, but if you let it get to 195-200 degrees the fat will melt and the meat will be tender and ready to “pull.”

Let the meat rest for 30 minutes loosely covered with foil.  “Pull” or shred pork while it is still warm and place it in a baking pan or crock pot and blanket with your favorite BBQ sauce and cover.  Turn crock pot on low or cover pan with foil and place in a slow oven, 200 degrees, until serving


We had some Broccoli Candy & Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower on the side

It cooked right along with the torta

NOTE:  When you are cooking 2 dishes at the same time, compromise the temperature settings.  The torta which cooks at 350 and the roasted vegetables which cook at 400, both did fine at a compromise temperature of 375 degrees.  Rotate pans half way during cooking and make time adjustments nearing the end of cooking.  If one dish finishes before the other, remove from oven and hold it covered with foil until serving

Such an easy and tasty side dish  😋

  • Difficulty: easy

1 head cauliflower

2 cloves garlic, minced

2-3 oz. Parmesan cheese

olive oil

salt & pepper

Remove flowerettes from base of cauliflower head, trim ends and slice.  Line a sheet pan with foil or parchment.  Place sliced flowerettes on pan in a pile.  Add seasonings and 1/2 of cheese.  Drizzle liberally with olive oil and toss to distribute oil and seasonings.  Spread out into an even layer.  Roast at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until caramelized and golden.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese and return to oven for 2 minutes to melt.  Serve immediately.  Serves 3-4 depending on the size of your cauliflower head.

    Yummmmm! Roasted Parmesan cauliflower is my favorite way to make cauliflower.


  3. Ellen Shook says:

    This looks delicious! You have just given me an idea of what to do with some leftover roasted chicken. Roasted cauliflower is great isn’t it? I started doing it a few years ago when I saw it on Giada’s show one time. We had some a few nights ago, in fact.

    Jenna, We’ll have to try your torta! We make quesadillas using our pulled pork leftovers with some Monterey Jack cheese, red onion, jalapeno and bbq sauce. I love the addition of corn! Roasted cauliflower is the only way I like it…bring on the Parm!


  5. Jenna, It all looks delicious! Funny, after all these years of living in or near Boston I never heard roast pork referred to as Boston butt! 🙂 I am one of the few people I guess who love cauliflower raw but your grilled version sounds yummy! I will make some this weekend! Linda


  6. That torta looks insanely good!!!!!! OMG


  7. Since it is after 5pm, your wonderful grilled pork torta would be fabulous for dinner tonight! Jenna, you amaze me with all your delicious recipes! Have a great weekend!

    Nom nom nom This looks so delish! Nice recipe ♥


  11. Leslie Anne Tarabella says:

    I love BBQ anything, but the torta idea is genius. It seems like it would hold the sauce and be very moist, which is important to me and my BBQ obsession. Love it.


  12. Suzy Godfrey says:

    This looks yummy! I can adjust it for my low carb diet!
