Metro Diner stops by FOX43 Kitchen for National Pork Month

YORK COUNTY, Pa.-- It's National Pork Month!

To celebrate, Metro Diner is stopping by the FOX43 Kitchen.

The diner has come up with a new lineup of dinner items for the month, including the Pulled Pork Mac Steak, which features a half-pound of BBQ pulled pork over macaroni & cheese and a cheddar cornbread waffle with maple butter.

Today, Chef Sara Griffen is stopping by the kitchen to show you how to make your own.

You can find the recipe below:
