Bzzagent Pork Be Inspired Meal #2

Pork(R) Be Inspired(R)

Here is the second meal I am making with my Kroger Moist & Tender Pork that I got for a discount from Bzzagent.

Recipe Details

Asian Pork Kabobs

1 pound boneless pork loin, cut into 1-inch cubes    3/4 cup teriyaki marinade, divided
2 cups pineapple chunks, about 1-inch                              1  red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch squares

4  green onions, cut into 2-inch pieces

Place pork in self-sealing plastic bag and add 1/2 cup teriyaki marinade. Seal bag and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours.
Prepare medium-hot fire in charcoal or preheat gas grill to medium high.
Remove pork from marinade. Thread pork, pineapple, red peppers and green onions onto skewers. Grill kabobs directly oven fire, turning to brown evenly, for about 10 to 12 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. , brushing kabobs with reserved marinade. Let rest 3 minutes before serving.

And this is how mine came out...

I used regular onion instead of green and all I had was the small pineapple pieces so most of them fell off (oops!) I did like the flavor of the pork better in this recipe than the tacos but both were a very tasty change of pace.

I was provided with discount coupons for the Pork to facilitate my review all opinions are 100% mine.

Endorse App is Closed

I know I told everyone about the Endorse app to use to save money but, scratch that. This is what I woke up to this morning when I checked for the usual Thursday morning new offers...

Endorse is Closed
Here's the message that they left on their website. I am not really impressed with shutting down without giving those who use it any notice but not much to be done about that.

Bzzagent Pork Be Inspired Meal #1

I was recently offered the opportunity to try out some of Kroger's Moist & Tender Pork and given discount coupons to use and some great recipe ideas from Bzzagent. I will be posting one dinner tonight and another later this week.

Recipe #1 is Pork Slow Cooker Tacos. If anyone knows my husband you know that if it involves Tacos or Nachos he is game but he only likes Beef. I figured we could give this a shot and see what he thought. Here's the recipe:

1 lb pork tenderloin, or chicken
1 15 oz can tomato sauce, or one 12oz jar salsa
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I use 1 full teaspoon for more heat)
½ teaspoon salt
3 cloves garlic, minced
Place pork in the base of your slow cooker. In a small bowl, stir together all remaining ingredients. Pour evenly over pork. Cook on low for 8 hours. When done, shred the pork using two forks, pulling against the grain of the meat. Serve in warmed tortillas with shredded lettuce, sliced bell peppers, chopped tomatoes, black olives, grated cheddar cheese, and sour cream. Garnish with chopped scallions.

And here's how mine came out...

Everyone loved these! I did add some sliced peppers and onions to the crockpot instead of using them as garnish.  These were a great change of pace and  I felt great serving these to my family since they were much leaner than the classic ground beef type. The pork stayed super moist and I am going to freeze the leftovers for a quick dinner some busy night.

I was provided with discount coupons to facilitate my review all opinions are 100% mine.


Sunday Menu Plan Week of 6/16

One great way to save money is to plan your meals and I am posting my menu plans for the week on Sundays.

Meijers 6/14

Here's my shopping trip from today, I had a major oopsie and forgot to put in my mperks # but I was busy arguing with the cashier because she rang up 10 of the 6 packs of pop when I only had 7! So since I was going to get some really good deals with Mperks and the sale ends tomorrow I will probably run by there tomorrow after I go to Kroger & Aldis :)
