Good home cooking recipes

I just found one for pulled pork sandwiches. they are my husbands favorite.


Serves 4



  • 1 can (15 ounces) crushed tomatoes in puree

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound), cut into 4 pieces

  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cider vinegar

  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed

  • 1/4 head small green cabbage, shredded

  • 4 whole-wheat rolls, split



Directions



  1. In a medium saucepan, stir together tomatoes, sugar, garlic, mustard, and 1/2 cup water; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; add pork, and simmer, covered, until tender, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer pork to a plate to cool. Simmer sauce over medium, uncovered, until reduced by half, about 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, make slaw: In a bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon vinegar, celery seed, and 1 tablespoon water; season with salt and pepper. Add cabbage, and toss to coat.

  3. Shred pork with 2 forks, and return to sauce; stir in 1 teaspoon vinegar. Serve pork on rolls, topped with slaw.

one thing I also like is meatloaf. Growing up I really didn't care for it, but now I like to make it because I put A1 sauce in it and it makes all the difference = ) I use:


one pound ground beef


one egg


a dash of salt and pepper


one cup bread crumbs


hmmm, I never measure the A1-maybe about 1/4 cup? a pretty good amount


then cook it at 375 for about an hour. so good, and easy

i grew up in a filipino household, so my idea of home cooking includes a dish called "adobo" (not to be confused with goya "adobo seasoning" - it's very different) which is a staple in filipino cuisine. it's basically a stew, is super super easy to make and is quite delicious.


this can be made with pretty much any type of protein, but the standard is either chicken adobo or pork adobo (or it can be a combination). if you are using chicken, dark meat (on the bone) is best. be sure to remove the skin to avoid too much oil in the dish. i don't really have specific measurements - just estimations. basically, it's equal parts soy sauce and vinegar. for the rest of the ingredients, add according to your tastes!



  • one part soy sauce

  • one part vinegar

  • bay leaf

  • minced garlic

  • black peppercorns or freshly cracked black pepper (my dad always uses whole peppercorns, but i can't stand biting into a whole peppercorn unexpectedly, so i crack the pepper)

  • sugar (optional - some people add a little something sweet to balance out the flavors, but i don't generally add sugar. i've experimented with other sweet additions, but DH doesn't like sweet and savory tastes together, so we leave it out)


Directions: combine all ingredients with your choice of protein and allow it to marinate for 30 mins to an hour. then put everything (marinade included) into a pot and bring to a boil. reduce the heat and allow it to simmer until the meat falls off the bone or is very very tender (about an hour or so). if the broth ends up being too salty or too vinegar-y, just add water to taste. skim any excess fat from the top. then just serve along with steaming hot rice! (i actually like it with brown rice).


by the way, this is something that can totally be made in a slow cooker. since my DH works nights, he will sometimes throw all the ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning when he gets home from work, leave it on all day while he's sleeping, and it's ready in time for dinner.
