I decided to take advantage of lean pork loin on sale at the corner market for $2.19 a pound and make up a batch of one of my very favorites - Pork Verde. I bought a 3 pound pork roast and took a large can of green chile enchilada sauce I had bought on sale for $1.78 out of my pantry and combined the two in my medium slow cooker. I let it cook all day long so the roast would fall apart and soak up all that wonderful verde sauce.
After using a fork to help it literally fall apart into shreds I divided the Pork Verde up into four freezer containers I had on hand, labeled them and put them in the freezer to use later as a key element in some meals I have planned.
Some of the meals I have planned for this roast include a simple pork verde with steamed rice and a little shredded cheese sprinkled across the top. Verde burritos are on the list as well as to use some of it as a topping for a salad. A delicious soup too. The soup will have corn, black beans, onions and peppers added to it before getting a topping of crushed tortilla chips and a dollop of sour cream.
Several potential and very delicious meals with a small investment of around $8 and very little time spent in the kitchen. Now that is what I call a good investment.
