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:


* 1 Box of Corn Bread Mix

* 2 Pounds of Pork

* About 2 TBS (per taste) Maple Syrup

* 1 ½ -2 Cups Favorite BBQ Sauce

* 2 Sticks Unsalted Butter
