What to Make When…Pork Roasts

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on February 2, 2011

When it comes to pork roasts, there are a number of ways to go about doing them!  I prefer the slow cooker, as the pork gets so tender and juicy. And delicious.

I typically purchase the pork shoulder for anywhere between $1.49/lb and $1.99/lb, and I also like to buy the larger boneless pork tenderloins when they go on sale for $1.99/lb or less.

When buying the larger boneless pork tenderloin, I generally cut off 2 meals worth of pork chops and then use the remaining portion as a roast. Below are a few of our favorite pork roasts…

I don’t actually cook a whole roast very often. I have trouble getting the inside cooked enough, so I usually just cut it into pork loin chops and use it that way.

The pork roast with apples and pears sounds divine right now! I better stop salivating and start dinner! :)

I love to make the crock pot Boston Butt and then either mix it with mexican seasonings and tomato sauce for taquitos or barbecue for sandwiches and baked potatoes. Ironically, we had BBQ potatoes tonight!

Last week, my grocery store had huge packages of pork roasts for $.99/lb. Needless to say, I bought 3 packs so this post is so timely for me. I have quite a few meals of pork in the freezer. I will definitely be using these recipes! They all sound terrific…thanks.

I have a freezer full of pork from buying and butchering a whole hog. My problem is what to do with multiple packs of ground pork? I’ve found or revised a few recipes for ground pork.

You could mix it with sauasage spices and make some breakfast sausages.

I think it would also be great in stir fry!

Use ground pork in meatloaf, spaghetti sause, asian flavored dishes, anywhere you’d use ground beef.
