Super Easy Crockpot Pork Loin Dinner
I am a meal planer(ish). I always go to the store with at least 4 big dinner meals in mind but I am always open to adding in an extra meal or two. Why? It’s simple! We usually eat left overs 1-2 nights a week and then on weekends there is always a chance of eating out.
Watch the Sales!!
I ALWAYS look at sales during my shopping. Same good food at a lower cost. I do most of my shopping at Publix and they are known for their BOGO and this week didn’t disappoint! I had zero intention of making pork loin but when I noticed it was buy one get one free, I couldn’t pass it up. Not only did I get dinner (and leftovers) for the week, but I also had one in the freezer for later.
I don’t like cooking with a lot of ingredients or anything crazy complicated. Here is my tip to you, have a bunch of recipes on your pinterest that you can find quickly. So, when something is on sale you can easily look it up on your phone and make sure you have it at home. Take a look at my Pinterest to see how I organize my dinner section by the main meat (or meatless). It makes it super easy to find when I am looking for an easy recipe.
I found this super easy recipe from SkinnyTaste and was so happy to realize I had most of the ingredients at home (score)! Now for the sides! I just love the little yellow potatoes. They are super easy.
I boil to get them nice and cooked. Chop up and toss with grass fed butter and some spices and pepper. Then, cook either in the oven or in cast iron skillet until nicely browned.
I ALWAYS keep a nice array of frozen veggies in the freezer. Honestly, I had zero idea what one I was going to choose until the last minute but I decided upon brussels sprouts and they went perfectly! Remember, I am NOT a fancy cook, I don’t like spending too much time cooking and find ZERO joy out of creating my own recipes. Fast, simple, and healthy(ish) are my jam! If I can make this meal then you can too. BONUS: My entire family LOVED it!
I changed a couple things out from the original recipe but am sure it tasted just the same. If you try it out be sure to let me know how you liked it!
