WFMW: Easy and Inexpensive Dinners
When it comes to making dinner I don’t want to spend a lot of money or a lot of time.
Last night we only had about 20 minutes from the time hubby walked through the door and walked back out. He had to be at the Church at 10 til 5 and the girls had to be there at 6. So we had a super easy meal that everyone loves.
Here is my ingredient list:
1 1/4 lb Pork Loin
1 Bottle BBQ Sauce
Spray your crockpot with cooking spray or use a crockpot liner. Add a little BBQ Sauce to the bottom then put in the meat and cover with the rest of the sauce. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 8 hours. Time may vary depending on your crockpot. You want the meat to fall apart when you pierce it with a fork.
When it’s done serve it on buns and whatever sides you wish. Normally we have a couple but last night was busy so we just had organic blue corn chips.
This also works great with chicken breast or beef. I use whatever meat we find at the cheapest price. 1 1/4lb works perfect for our family of 4 (2 Adults and 2 Preteen girls) giving everyone 1 sandwich and having enough meat for at least 3 more.
Another super easy meal we love around here is soft shelled tacos or burritos.
Here is how I make them:
1 1/4 lb boneless chicken, pork or beef
1 jar favorite salsa
Put it in the cockpot exactly as above. Fill warm tortillas with meat mixtures, fresh veggies, shred cheese and sourcream. Serve with refried beans and corn on the side. My girls love this one also!
Here are a few other very easy meals that we enjoy.
Since it is cold outside right now I enjoy to make soups, stews and chili in the crockpot. Very little work and most of them cost very little and that Works for Me!
