Pork Chile Verde Bowl / (Tips: Using Components of Meal Kits to Mix it Up & Cooking Meat)
Updated: Aug 25, 2020
Here's a lunch or dinner idea to mix things up. I used this Green Chile Verde rice from Lundberg's which has a nice kick to it and made a pork chop and then topped it with some Old El Paso enchilada sauce.
The Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce actually came from a big family-sized meal kit to make 30 tacos! -- which was only $8.
Tip: One thing I like to do especially because I cook for myself is to use components of these big family kits (e.g. enchilada sauce) and use them for different meals. That way I can mix up my meals & not get bored. :) I can use the sauce for tacos (as in the meal kit) or for other things like this Pork Chile Verde Bowl.
Tip: If I have thick piece of meat (pork, chicken, beef) -- thicker than 1/2 inch or 1 cm, before I start cooking on the stove -- I preheat oven to 350 degrees, so I can finish it off in the oven to make sure the middle is cooked. I sear the outside on medium high / heat heat in some oil or butter for a few minutes on each side to get a nice brown crust. I just pop it in the oven for 5 min. or so to make the sure the middle is cooked. This also works for a toaster oven.
That's it! Give it a try! We are good at this!
