Wow, over three weeks since I have posted anything. I am kinda slacking here, so this is a two-fer post! I had a friend come to visit from Montana so I decided to smoke something. Safeway had some pork loin on sale so I decided on that wrapped in bacon of course because you know, bacon makes everything better. I trimmed off most of the fat and seasoned the whole thing with my famous coffee rub. My bacon got a little warm and did not stay put very well but it worked.
So, three of us could only eat about half of this beast. I had a hankering for some good Mexican food so I decided to use the leftovers for chili verde. I cut the pork up into cubes and added a quart of chicken stock, a large jar of salsa verde, onions, green bell pepper, garlic, oregano, coriander, cumin and a little salt. Got that all boiling and reduced the heat to simmer for about 5 hours until it had reduced down to a nice, thick sauce.
Burrito time! Flour tortillas, cheddar cheese, green onions, cilantro, some extra hot sauce and a squeeze of lime. Just what I was craving. The meat was super tender and had such and had an awesome, smokey flavor. Hope ya all enjoyed and I will try and post a little more often. 🙂
