Pork Roast Ideas

I admit that I bought my first pork roast EVER this past Saturday at Hy-Vee. I figured .99/lb was just to good to pass up! Of course I had no idea what to do with this thing and emailed a friend for some ideas. Here is what she shared with me:

"After cooking roast shred it and season with adobo seasoning by Goya (found in the Hispanic section at Hy-Vee. Make sure you get the one with cumin. Then divide meat and freeze/package for use in your meals. We use the meat for quesadillas, burritos (with rice, beans, cheese & tomatoes), and BBQ sandwiches"

My friend also shared that today she is making pork and noodles (using free Reames, of course). She said to saute some onion and/or garlic, add broth from cooking the roast and bring to a boil, add the noodles and cook as directed. Last 10 minutes add carrots, celery and pork
.

YUM! I can't wait to cook my pork roast and since I too have some FREE Reames on hand I just may try her recipe!

Okay, so I have to ask. :) How did you get the free Reames? I haven't been able to find a sale on those, in well, forever! :(

I got mine last month sometime here in Topeka... or maybe 6 weeks ago... it was fairly recent though

You SO didn't grow up in Iowa! :) I had more pigs in my backyard than people who lived in the nearest town.

Check out the Iowa Pork Producers Web site for many more ideas of how to use that pork roast!

Any time you can find pork tenderloin for $1.99/lb or less, snatch it up. That's one of the best cuts and is very versitle.

We usually cook our pork roast in the crock pot with veggies (my husband's fave is with green beans and onion soup mix only, but I usually make it with carrots potatoes and onions). The leftovers are also great to make BBQ pork sandwiches.
