Super simple, hearty side dish.  This accompanied an AMAZING (if i do say so myself) braised pork shoulder.  The pork recipe was from the January issue of Bon Appetit, if you want to check that out.  Sorry I didn’t take the time to photograph it.  I swear it was super easy to make and looked just like the picture.


  • 1 1/2 cups grits (not instant)
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
  • 6 ounces sharp white Cheddar, shredded
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Tabasco sauce
  1. Slowly sprinkle grist over 1 quart of boiling water.
  2. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until grits are tender and resemble a porridge, 15–20 minutes.
  3. Stir in butter and cheese until melted. Season with salt & pepper, and pass the Tabasco.
