Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

One Meat -- Three DIFFERENT Meals

my latest issue of
Bon Appetit came

I became enamored with this dish

 Slow roasted pork roast

I bought a roast
(which was on sale)
for less than $7

And roasted it Saturday per the recipe
Bon Appetit

On Saturday we had

Slow roasted pork shredded pork roast
served over creamy polenta

We often have a more casual meal

Some of the pork was put into a Dutch oven
And I made a homemade BBQ sauce which I added to the pot
And then I cooked it at 250 for a good hour and a half
Served on a bun with Amish girl's broccoli salad My Way and potato salad
(and a pickle)


I put the last of the pork in a Dutch oven
Added some salsa, some chili powder and some oregano
And simmered it for a good hour

Served it in corn tortilla shells
with more salsa, sour cream, cilantro and a squeeze of lime

A roast (whether pork, beef or lamb)
is an economical cut of meat
For less than $7 (for the meat)
I got six meals 
(three meals for the two of us)

And they were three different entrees.

I'm not big on leftovers

But these really aren't leftovers
They're just a different way to eat the roast.

I often buy a roast and cook it on Saturday
And it feeds us at least two other times.

In fact, some of our favorite meals
Are the ones made out of the "leftover" roast!

It all sounds delicious and I love leftovers. I need to try a pork roast. (I make beef all the time)
