As busy parents we are always on the lookout for quick meals, with high quality ingredients that we can make for our family. We love to get around the table, but with crazy schedules, it’s hard! What can I make that everyone will love and I need to do it in 10 minutes?
Shopping in Kroger, I found Hormel’s new product Everyday Scratch Flamed Seared Carnitas. You can find them in the refrigerated entrees section. It’s basically carnita’s meat which is pork already flavored and cooked for you! It’s fresh, with no preservatives and 0g Trans Fat. I tried it and WOW….I was hooked! I was so impressed that I could literally cook this meal in the microwave for 2 ½ minutes in the container I bought it in and it came out this wonderfully flavored succulent piece of meat! I mean, I was licking my fingers…seriously!
Along with the Hormel Everyday Scratch Carnitas, I can pop some steamable veggies and rice in the microwave and have dinner literally on the table in less than 10 minutes. I was so surprised at how the carnitas shredded apart and literally melt in your mouth tender!
My husband commented that he didn’t see the crockpot on the counter…..my little secret! I am definitely going to keep this around for a quick go to meal. The possibilities are endless here. Traditional carnitas, pork and potatoes or this yummy creation which I affectionately call peanut pork. The sauce is super fast to make, and is done in a few minutes while everything is in the microwave.
You can use items you already have at home to create an Everyday Scratch meal and let someone else take care of all the fuss!
- ½ cup of soy sauce
- 1tbs of peanut butter
- 1 cup of chicken broth
- 2 dried chili peppers
- 2 tbs of sugar
- ½ tbs of ginger
- juice of 1 lime
- ¼ tsp of garlic powder
- Place all ingredients into pot and allow it to simmer for 2 minutes, stirring to combine.
- Remove from heat and spoon desired amount over rice.
