GCC Recipe Swap - So Easy a Kid Can Do It!

First off let me just say I'm sorry I've been more absent than usual over the past few weeks. My Dad has been ill so I've pretty much scrapped everything else to be with him. Thank God I have kids that can cook in my absence otherwise I think my family would have survived on toast and bananas over the past few weeks.

So if you have kids that might need to fill in for you in the meal department or it's just time for them to start helping out, here's a simple little recipe that they can use to put them to work and help them build confidence in the kitchen. And you'll all be happy when you sit down to a delicious home cooked meal.

Delicious Pork and Noodles
  • 1 -2 lb pork loin
  • 2 (14 ounce) cans beef broth
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag egg noodles
  • salt
  • pepper
Sprinkle all sides of your pork loin liberally with salt and pepper. Spray inside of crockpot with spray cooking oil. Place pork in crockpot along with about 1/4 cup of water and cook on low all day or high for about 3-4 hours. It is done, when you can shred it with a fork. About 15-20 minutes before serving, bring the cans of broth to just the point of boiling and then add the bag of noodles and cook according to the directions on the package. When noodles are done, drain off any excess liquid. While the noodles are cooking, remove your pork loin from the crockpot and gently shred the pork into bite sized pieces. When the noodles are done, add the pork to the pot of noodles and stir so pork is distributed throughout. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Serve with green salad and rolls.
