Last week, I posted about my Green Tomato Salsa, my attempt to salvage my drowned garden. Now I am going to attempt to make it useful!
My family absolutely loves pork butt roasts. I cook them all of the time in the slow cooker, with apple cider vinegar, and then use the cooking liquids (let’s be honest, it is almost straight fat) to make a vinegar barbecue sauce by adding brown sugar and hot sauce. I made the huge mistake a few weeks ago of thinking that I was getting a great bargain when Bi-lo had pork tenderloin halves on sale, buy one get one. So I bought two of the monsters. I cooked the first one in the slow cooker, and that thing was so lean that it was like sawdust! I hated to get rid of it, so I stuck what was left in the freezer, for the day when I had a brilliant idea to save it.
Last week when I made the green tomato salsa, the light bulb came on! I poured some salsa on the pork, melted some cheddar cheese on top, and it was fabulous! I am on a low carb diet, so it was perfect for me. This week I am going to try and combine these great ideas from the very beginning!
So here is my pork loin half…
Then I got out my green tomato salsa, and a can of tomatoes. Of course, I would rather have used Ro-tel tomatoes, but I am out. I am using plain diced tomatoes instead. You can substitute two cans of salsa verde from the store for my homemade salsa.
