Cook once, eat twice. Doesn’t that sound like the best idea ever? This shredded pork will give you just that – two (or more) meals in one. Just a few ingredients and you have tender, flavorful meat that is good with just about any Mexican inspired dish.
I’m all about getting dinner ready before the 5:00 rush at our house, and if there’s a way I can basically skip prepping altogether I’ll take it! This Crock Pot Salsa Shredded Pork does that for me (and you too!). By using a 2-3 lb pork loin, you’ll have PLENTY of leftovers to repurpose the next day. This time, I used mine for burrito bowls (as seen above) one night, and for Chipotle-inspired burritos the next day. It would also be great in enchiladas or in migas if you need a breakfast idea. I could go on and on with ideas for using this pork, like Bubba in Forrest Gump but I’ll keep the list to myself and let you figure out what makes your family the happiest.
I’ll admit that one of the main reasons I made this this week was because we finally broke down and bought the Cilantro Lime Crema double pack at Costco so now it’s my secret (not so secret) mission to find ALL the ways I can use it. Hence, the copious amounts on my burrito bowl above. I maybe could’ve made it a little bit more attractive for its photo shoot, but let’s be honest, I also eat the fruits of my labor so taste > looks for this one. It’s so good that I would consider dipping my Chick Fil-A nuggets in it instead of Chick Fil-A Sauce which is borderline traitorous in my book.
Give it a go this week, and let your Crock Pot do the dirty work for you for 1, 2, or even 3 days worth of meals. I’d love to see the ways that you cook once and eat twice with this one! Tag me on Instagram (@midwest.mash) or post on my Facebook Page (Midwest Mash). ❤️
