Pork Roast Chipotle Ideas
Left-Overs from the Pork Loin Sirloin Roast
But First Some Thoughts on Cooking……..
I think cooking is an art form for me. Although, I stand firmly on the collective shoulders of my family and friends cooking, I always alter the recipe to suit my own personal tastes. I have a lifetime collection of recipes from my Aunt Pat. I also have copies of many of my mom’s recipes.
Very infrequently do I try and cook something that I would not eat or that I do not like.
I am a cook not a chef. I highly regard several Chefs, though. I would travel nearly to the end of the earth to eat anything that Chef Rick Bayless cooks!
I am reminded of a period in my life when a dear friend was a movie critic in Arizona. I use to envy his job. What a great job, getting paid to go to the movies. This was until he explained to me that movies were now his job and he did not have the fun of selecting a movie to see but had to see all of the bad ones and write about them too.
I will continue to cook as long as cooking is fun. The minute it becomes like work, I don’t think I will continue this. I have had a lifetime of work in a very different field!
Great Left Overs
When I made the Pork Loin Roast Chipotle, I promised luscious left-overs.
If you are empty-nesters like we are you may get all of these dishes out of the original 4-5 pound roast, especially if the roast was in the 5 pound range. However, if you are feeding a larger family you will only get one dish more!
Using the drippings from the Pork Loin Sirloin Roast make a basic rue (two links below for rue/in the enchilada sauce and drippings/discussed in the Roast recipe)
Add in about a cup of water (may use milk too) to the rue pan and whisk until thickened.
Serve over the warmed pulled Pork Loin Sirloin Roast with toasted French bread
The soup is Gazpacho (link below!)
Okay, I went so easy-peasey that I used a commercially purchased tomatillo enchilada sauce. I heated slices of the pork in the sauce and served over mashed potatoes.
By now, there is very little pork left, even for us!
Shred the pork and make cheese pork enchiladas in the microwave
These are all tasty and budget friendly left-overs.
- Enchilada Sauce
Enchilada Sauce Well, Ive called it enchilada sauce but as you will see it is a staple basic sauce. Or as my Aunt Pat use to say Slap it on just about anything. Think beyond the enchilada. Think...
