Default Re: Meals in May

I have no idea what to make today. I'm going to a friend's house for wine and cheese late afternoon. It'll be time for dinner when I get home so maybe just microwave nachos or something

We're having fajitas for mother's day.

This morning I stopped by the grocery store and they had a lot of good meat on clearance. So today I made pulled pork to have tomorrow ( it will be better after cooling and reheated) and then I made chicken fried stake for dinner.

Default Meals in May

We had a gathering of friends for dd17’s birthday this afternoon. Dh grilled burgers for our family and one other that stayed a little later.

Not sure what tomorrow’s dinner will be, but dh has said he will cook.

Default Re: Meals in May

Yes!

It was originally for a slow cooker for all day with some more liquid but I do it in my pressure cooker for an hour or so.

3-3.5 lb bone in pork well marbled

Score the meat with a knife, stab down in to the thick portions

Mix together ( I end up.usinf these as rough proportions and not really measuring thing much):
2T Oil ( I use olive)
1T Salt
4 cloves of Garlic minced
2t Cumin
1t Oregano

Rub the spice mixture all over the meat, try to fill in the holes you created earlyer.

Put in to pot along with

Juice of one lime
Juice of one orange
0.25c water

I haven't used a slow cooker in more than a decade I think you would need to add some more liquid.

In a pressure cooker if you are only doing 3lb and hour is great. If you get up close to 10lb of solid pork butt/ shoulder it needs two hours.

Oh thank you! This sounds perfect! I was stressing about getting it in the Crock-Pot today but I'll just do the instant pot. I'll have to do a different juice since dh is allergic to oranges. I might just do more lime

I think that would be just fine. When I reheat the pork I normally add more lime juice.

You don't have any problem getting it up to pressure? (I thought you needed at least 1 cup of liquid.)

I don't normally do it in my instapot because I am doing larger cuts, so I don't know of that would affect things.

With the citrus juice I have more than a cup of liquid.
