How NOT to do a pork loin
« on: December 27, 2008, 09:50:34 AM »
Started off well, rubbed up with spicy brown mustard and covered with rub!  Off to the smoker until IT hit 150 took about 5 hours......This is where it took a turn for the worse, instead of FTC'ing I threw it into the oven @ 170 figuring we'd be eating in just a bit...Nope got busy playing with the grandbaby and we still had crackers, cheese and CB on the table.  So kept playing and snacking, snacking and playing the kids came and picked up Jaden and we went to bed.  Uh Oh!  So the next morning heres what I find!



Can you say DONE!

My dog loves it when I forget what I'm doing......she eats real good when it happens  ;D  Small price to pay for quality time with the grandchild, IMO.

I think we've done that at least once, not with smoked food, but some side dish or something. I've gotten into the habit of setting the oven timer even if I know how long it is supposed to go, 'cause with 4 kids sometimes you get distracted....

Sorry for your loss WTS & Deb.

I just left the grocery store and picked up a couple whole pork loins, on sale for $1.69/lb.
I think its on sale till New Years. If its on sale here I'm sure it is where you live, maybe you can pick up some more and try again.

Oh yeah the dogs love it when Dad boogers something up, or drops something....I'll never forget (because I get reminded all the time) dropping 4 racks full of ribs they looked at me like I was the messiah, 'Bless you Daddy'!  ;D

Let us all take a moment of silence for WTS and Deb  :'(

It's easy to get forgetful when you got millions of things on your mind or a little one in your lap.

Sorry to hear that.  It's a shame when it happens.

Soup or stew fixin's!  Time to make some lemonade out of the lemons.  here's a quick chile verde recipe

Saute a chopped onion.  Add a small can of diced anaheim chiles, pour in about a 1/2 to a cup of chicken stock, and a small can of salsa verde.  simmer that stuff for about twenty minutes, then add your "cubed pork loin" and simmer on low until the meat gets infused with the moisture and breaks down a bit (or throw it in a crock pot for a couple of hours).  Serve with corn tortillas, beans of your choosing, and Mexican rice. 

Then tell everyone "I meant to do that." ;) ;D
