Welcome to Day 2 of the Recipe Box Challenge! Each day we'll give you a new food theme to add to our recipe box!

Your theme for today is: Pork.

Remember, you don't have to cook something each day -- though of course we'd love to see pictures if you whip something up! You can do any of the following:

  • Post a photo and include a recipe of a dish you've made in the past that fits the theme.
  • Post a photo and include a recipe you've seen online, that you'd like to try based on the theme.
  • Post a recipe based on the theme even if you don't have a photo.
  • Post a recipe and/or idea for leftovers based on the theme.

I grew up in New Mexico and Posole with Pork was a winter tradition of ours. It's soooo yummy and if you make lots you can freeze it and heat it up through the year. Enjoy!!

I'm not a huge fan of pork, but my grandmother makes some awesome bone-in pork chops in the crock pot. 

Pork chops, cream of mushroom soup, onion soup mix, spices to taste.  Cook on low until the meat is falling off the bone.  We make mashed potatoes and use the liquid from the crockpot to make gravy.

We're not a huge fan of pork. Normally it's in a roast but if we have chops I make southwestern chops. I serve with either mashed potatoes or baked and veggies.

Whenever we have leftover pork loin we slice it really thin and  dd bbq sauce to make bbq on a bun. Serve it with a sald and side of fries and we have a whole meal that everyone loves

This is one I can't share a recipe for. We don't eat pork for religious reasons so I've never cooked it or even looked at recipes.
