Posole / Pozole (Delicious Hominy Soup/Stew)

Posole
1-2lb Pork, I used shoulder w/ bone
4 Chicken Broth Cubes + 4c Water

1c Green Enchilada Sauce (I used Carlita)
2cans Hominy, drained
3c bagged Coleslaw Mix

2 Dried Bay Leaves
1/4tsp Sea Salt
1tsp Cumin

2tsp Dried Oregano
1/4tsp Black Pepper
1/4tsp Dried Mint

Butter Flavor Cooking Spray Crock. Add all. Cook on Low 8-10 hours. Serve with TORTILLA CHIPS! YES, Do!

*Notes: Absolutely try the recipe above, as is. But, other options are: 1/2tsp Chili Powder is optional- I skip. Replacing the Enchilada Sauce (Which is BEST) with Tomatillo Salsa (Tomatillo Salsa must contain green chiles in ingredients). 1/2c Frozen Corn, thawed is optional. Upping the salt to 1/2tsp, is also an option for my salty fans.
Remove Bay Leaves prior to serving- I leave in, just don’t eat them. Just a flavor enhancer.

Optional: Serve with Rice (Cooked in Chicken Broth) with Cilantro. We skipped!

Get the Most of Your Roast

There are Many-A-Ways to enjoy your large cuts. These recipes use Pork or Beef. With the purchase of a pig, we used Pork for all these. It was WONDERFUL!!! Cooked on Low. In  LIGHTLY Buttered Crock or Butter Flavored Cooking Sprayed Crock. Choose to amp some of these up with Bell Peppers (Added 1/2way) or Mushrooms. Also, flip meat halfway through. Trying to cut calories or carbohydrates? Try using wraps, egg rolls, or cabbage leaves, instead. Chicken can be tried with some of these, as well! Try adding halved potatoes to some of these, for sides!
TRY FREEZING THESE! Bam! Done! You’re Welcome.

1can Cream of Chicken
1/4c Sour Cream

Shredded Mexi Hot Cheese
Egg Rolls *See Notes
Toppings: Lettuce, Roma Tomatoes, more Sour Cream

Butter Flavor Cooking Spray Crock. Add first 8 ingredients. Cook on low 5-6 hours. Shredded last 30min-1hr. Roll pork mixture, with sprinkle of cheese, into EGG ROLL WRAPS. Spray skillet, well, with Butter Flavor Cooking Spray. Brown all sides of eggrolls.
Cooking Spray oven pan, lightly. Add a little sauce mixture. Single layer eggrolls in. Top with a little sauce mixture. Top with good handful of cheese. Bake in preheated oven at 400 for 16minutes. Broil few minutes, if desired. Serve with Shredded Lettuce, Roma Tomatoes, and some Sour Cream.

*Notes: You can try GREEN ENCHILADA Sauce, instead of Salsa Verde!
I have yet to try, but, you can use
Chicken Breasts. Just swap Beef Broth with Chicken Broth, then.
Eggrolls have a little less carbs and calories compared to most your brand flour shells. Corn shells or flour shells can be used, as well. Your preference. Some corn shells are lower in carbs, too. Cabbage leaves are an option. All may alter flavor, or enhance it, I’ve yet to try alters. Check labels.

Adobo-Coco Pig N Rice (Adobo Pork N Coconut Rice)

Adobo Pork

*SEE NOTES*
1.5T Extra Virgin Olive Oil (For Browning Pork Loin)
1.5-2 lb. Pork LOIN (Use Loin!)
6T Soy Sauce (1/4c+2T)
6T Rice Vinegar (1/4c+2T).
4 Dried Bay Leaves
1tsp Garlic Powder
1/4tsp Coriander Powder
1T Dried Chives
1/4tsp Ground Pepper
1/4c Water (Optional, I skipped)

Rice Recipe:
2c Instant Rice
1 Chicken Broth Cube, crushed
1c Water
1c canned Coconut Milk
Splash of Lime Juice (Concentrate kind)

LIGHTLY/BARELY Salt and Pepper Pork Loin. Heat oil in skillet. Brown each side of pork (Starting with fat side down 1st). Butter Flavor Cooking Spray Crock Pot. Add in everything, EXCEPT Rice Recipe, to crock (Pork, set in fat side up). Cook on low 5-6 hours. Remove pork, slice. Serve over rice. You may add 1/2tsp juice from crock (IT GOES A LONG WAY!!!**).
Rice: In microwave dish, add in rice, water, coconut milk, crushed broth cube. Microwave according to instructions. Allow to sit a minute. Splash with Lime Juice, toss with fork. Serve slice over rice.

**I wouldn’t recommend shredding pork and adding back to crock with juice! Especially, if skipping water. Otherwise, it may be too salty. The juice goes a long way. Meant for cooking it, thick pork. I would remove pork, slice thick, and serve over rice. Spoon on a little juice, as needed, if you want more.

Another Cooking Option: I was going to add 1/2c, or so, of Unsweetened canned Coconut Milk into the Pork Adobo Recipe (But, decided on Coconut Rice). You can do so, skipping water. Try:
Above Recipe, plus:

My Vacation Easy Meals

7vacayfreezermeals
vacayfridgemeals


With a vacation full of fun and relax, we wanted to do just that. Also, save space for packing vs. packing many ingredients for meals. Especially, being gone a week and a family our size! We premade/preassembled meals, then froze them. And brought the Crock Pot. This technique SAVES SPACE! SAVES TIME. Food lasts longer. DOUBLED AS ICE FOR COOLER! And, it HELPS FINANCIALLY! Because, you can buy the meats when on sale, ahead of time, make and freeze as you go vs. all at once at full price.
(Also, check out our Recipe Gallery and our post Get the Most of Your Roast … Freezer Friendly Meals!)
Here’s the meals we did (ALSO, CHECK OUT OUR 2015 MEAL PLAN HERE!):

Frito Taco Salad
– Frito Taco Salads, a ritual for a while now.
1.5-2lb Beef (Turkey can be used)
2 GOOD Taco Season Pkt.
1/2c Water
1/2 can Diced Tomatoes, drained (Reserve juice)
3/4c Salsa
1/2can Refried Beans*
Little less than 1/2 can Black Beans w/Jalapenos* Optional
1 small onion, chopped (Added right before freezing)

Cook beef. Add in taco seasons, beans, salsa, tomatoes with juice, shakes of: Garlic Powder, Chili Powder, Onion Powder.
Allow to cool. Place in freezer bag (I double bag), lay flat. Day of eating, either thaw or just throw into crock. (I just threw in and kept on warm, flipping.) Serve with FRESH tomato, fritos, sour cream, shredd. cheese, lettuce, whatever other toppings of choice.
*(Rest of cans we used for tacos, the night I premade meals) These are also optional. Point is, just premake and freeze.

bbqlegstunasalad
– BBQ Legs with Tuna Salad
Frozen Legs
Favorite BBQ Season Pkt. (Marinade- Grill Mates Texas BBQ kind!)
Favorite BBQ Sauce

Add legs to ziploc bag, add in seasoning, allow to thaw- Mixing around. Grill legs. Close to being done, smoother with BBQ sauce, flip and repeat on other side. Allow each side to thicken. Serve.

– Tuna Salad:
Space Saver- I bought Miracle Whip. I kept a lil over 1/2 the jar. Rest I placed into separate container (For sandwiches). Then, I used Miracle Whip Jar to store the Tuna Salad SAUCE. In jar, I did:

I kept a lil more than 1/2 jar Miracle Whip (Leave in jar!)
1tsp TO 1+1/4tsp Lawry’s Seasonal Salt
1/4tsp Paprika
1/2tsp Dill Weed *SEE NOTES
2tsp Vinegar *SEE NOTES
1/8 tsp Onion Powder
  -MIX ABOVE INGREDIENTS IN Miracle Whip container.
-Then, add to jar, on top of Sauce (Don’t mix in):

1.5c Shredd. Cheddar Cheese
1c Frozen Peas
  -Place on lid.
-1 hour Prior to Serving:

About 2c uncooked Macaroni Noodles, cooked
2 cans Tuna, drained (1 hr. prior to eating. KEEP IN CANS TIL THEN!)

I premade sauce morning of trip. For leak reinforcement: I placed some plastic over top of Miracle Whip jar (I used ripped sandwich bag), twisted on top. Keep cold til serving.
About 1 hour prior to serving: Cook noodles. Mix sauce and canned tuna together. Add noodles into sauce, to consistency desired. Toss rest. I always have it a little saucy, as it’ll sit and absorb some. Keep cold til serving.
*NOTES: I didn’t have pickle juice from the jar, what we usually use. So, improvised with vinegar and dill. Try it with dill pickle juice! I always eyeball it. About 1T to 1.5T… About. Skip Vinegar and Dill, then.

campingburgerfoils
– Hamburger Foils
Frozen Burger Patties, 1 per foil
1 Potato per foil, diced
1 bag Baby Carrots, split up (1 bag lasted 6 foils)
Chopped Onions (We used 2 small for 4 people)
1 Onion Season Pkt. (A small sprinkle per foil. It goes a LONG way!)
1-2T Butter per packet, we forgot, and a smidge of Crisco worked well!

Dice potatoes, cut onions. Give each person foil. Kids love making their own! Add in desired vegis. Top with butter or crisco. Add one frozen burger to top. A small sprinkle of onion pkt. seasoning. Double or triple wrap. Add to hot fire pit coals. Ours cooked in about 45 minutes (Time varies). Rotate, we didn’t flip!
Rest of burgers we had for supper another night. We also ate leftover Tuna Salad with this meal.
Healthier Option: Turkey Burger, Butter Spray/Olive Oil/Coconut Oil

– Pepperoncini Roast Beef Sandwiches (Updated Recipe. PLUS, More Roast Recipes!):
In a freezer bag place:
UNcooked Roast
1 Pkt. Au Jus *Optional
1 Pkt. Good Ranch Season
1 Jar Pepperoncinis, whole, tips cut, and drained
1 small Onion, sliced
3 Beef Broth Cubes
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
Fresh Cracked Pepper
Add later:
3.5c Water (Add to crock when cooking! 3, if skipping Au Jus)
Provolone Cheese (I buy and FREEZE complete pkg. – SEPARATE from roast. Throw into fridge at vacation destination, to thaw, then use.)

Eating time, just throw everything into crock, except cheese. (Tip: Add water into bag to get excess seasons, add to crock). Cook on low til done. Near end, add Provolone Cheese to top. Serve on buns once Provolone’s melted.

– Zesty BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
Frozen Chicken
1 Zesty Italian Season Pkt.
1 bottle BBQ (We used Smoked Hickory. Your Pref.)
2T Worcestershire
1/4c Brown Sugar
1/4tsp TO 1/2tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1/4c Water
1 small Onion (Added right before freezing)

PREMAKE IN CROCK at home (On low, til chicken is done). Cool, add onion, then freeze, laying flat, in double freezer bags. Eating time throw into crock and warm til thawed, cook on low. Serve on buns.

– Sloppies
1.5lb Beef, cooked.
Season with few good shakes of: Basil, Oregano, Pepper, Garlic Powder
1 can Manwich Sloppy Sauce
1 can Stewed Tomatoes, drained
1 small Onion, chopped

Cook. Allow to cool completely. Double Freezer bag, lay flat. Freeze. Eating day, throw into crock. I did on warm til thawed, stirring. Serve on buns.

Up to 1/4 tsp Sea Salt (I use 1/8+1/16tsp)
1/4 tsp Pepper
1c + 1/4c Mayo
1c Sour Cream
4 celery, cut small
1 bunch Green Onion
4-5 Chicken Breasts, cooked (Boiled in Water+1 Chicken Broth cube)
Optional* 1/8 tsp Sugar, or more to taste

Place frozen chicken into water with chicken broth cube. Turn on heat and cook til done. Drain and cut up. Mix all together. Pack in tightly concealed container. Keep refrigerated til serving. I premade morning of leaving. Ate for lunch within 3 days.

YOU CAN Pretty much make any of our recipes and prefreeze them for vacation meals. Then, just throw in Crock Pot and Forget About It! Check Out Our Soups, Roasts, Chili Recipes. Or, Our Crock Pot Recipes … Those are all GREAT to PrePrep/PreMake and Freeze… Making Easy Meals! Last year we did our Chillin Chili (Premade in crock, froze as flat as could in ziploc.). You can do this with any stew, roast, chili, even soups!
TIP: When Premaking Meals with Broth:
-If Pre-PREPping (Not cooking): I usually add the Broth Cubes to freezer meals, then, add water at time of cooking. Just Write on freezer bag how many cups of water needed for cooking!
-If Pre-COOKing: Add Water at time of cooking, of course.

Also, we had Lunch Meat Wiches with leftover Miracle Whip (I freeze Lunch Meat and thaw in fridge on arrival), Tuna+Pea Sandwiches, Easy Packable Breakfast (Cereal, Poptarts), Smores, Waffle Camping Cones: Waffle Cones, REPEAT layers with pieces: Chocolate, Bananas, Marshmallow. Wrap in foil 3 times. Place in small fire, or on coals, about 30sec. on 4 sides.

YOU CAN EVEN FREEZE Buns! Luckily we have a toaster where we go, for quick thaw/toasting. Or use foil in Fire Pit. Or, toast on Grill. Also, awesome if you see them ON SALE at the store! Be sure to keep frozen til use. Or, they will thaw and mold!!!

Tips I seen, and will try next year. Probably better if you’re scrambling eggs. Crack and add to mason jar, place plastic on top, twist on top. Pour out to use. Helps those pesky eggs from breaking in carts!
Premake pancake mix, add into cleaned out ketchup bottle. Shake and use.

Pack FREEZIES – Doubles as ice. Cheap Treat!

Porky Pig’s Chopped Rice

porkandrice


4-6 Boneless Pork Chops
1 can Cream of Mushroom
1 can Cream of Celery
2c Water
2 Chicken Broth Cubes (Use 1 per cup of water)
2c Rice
Frozen Peas (Added later)
Pepper

Crock Pot Version:
Butter Cooking Spray Crock. Place everything, except rice and peas, into crock. Cook on low for about 4-6 hours. About 30 minutes prior to serving add in rice and peas. Cook until rice is just tender.

Oven Version:
Place water, cubes, and pork into butter flavored cooking sprayed pan. Season with pepper. Cook covered. When pork is just about done, add in rice. Once half to most way cooked, add in cream ofs.

Notes: Broth and Rice measurements are based on crock. I have yet to measure oven, I’ve always eyeballed it. Also, you can choose to chop up pork, or keep whole (In crock, pork holds it’s form better with browning each side first) Pic above I only had 3 small chops, so I just threw it in and cut it up before serving.
Cream ofs are of choice…

Best Dead Cow Marinade

deadcow

1/3c Soy Sauce
1/2c Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/3c fresh Lemon Juice (I’ve used Fridge Kind, as well)
1/4c Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 tsp Hot Pepper Sauce (We used Louisiana)
1 tsp Regular Mustard
1 tsp Onion Powder
a sprinkle of Cayenne Powder
1T + 1/2T Garlic Powder
3T dried Basil
1T + 1/2T Dried Parsley
1 tsp Course Black Pepper
1 tsp Dried Minced Garlic (I’ve used 2tsp Fresh Garlic, as well)

Directions:
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Pour marinade over desired type of meat (Preferably a slab of dead cow or chops). Cover, and refrigerate for up to 8 hours. Cook meat as desired. Try our best technique for a good steak. Olive oil in skillet, get that pan hot, I mean I want that steak to sizzle or you’ve ruined your whole meal. Sear for about 3minutes on each side, you want a nice brown, but not fully cooked. Just leave it cook, don’t move it too much! This locks the juices in. Juices rise when cooked. By searing each side, you lock those juices in. Transfer and bake, or grill til desired. Remember that the steaks cook as they rest and absorb the juices. So, allow a few minute rest and cook to just under desired steak- Rare, Med., etc.
