Sunday I threw a pork roast in the crockpot. The night before I rubbed it down with our Farmer’s Dry Rub. I knew Sunday was going to be a busy day and that is why I love crockpots!
Cooking the roast meant I would have two different meals from one roast. Do you do that? I really try to cook once for two meals whenever I can. Especially during the summer when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen or because you are just too busy everyday.
So, on Monday I shredded what was left of the pork roast.
In a pan I made a gravy. Now, I think you should make whatever gravy you like whether it be a jar, canned, dry envelope or from scratch. I used a dry package of brown gravy and a dry package of mushroom gravy. I added one cup of water and one can of evaporated milk.
While that simmered, I grabbed a package of our Chive and Dill Vegi Dip.
I added the package to 1 cup of sour cream.
After the two were completely mixed together, I added it to the gravy.
Once mixed, I added the shredded pork roast.
YUM! This would be great over mashed potatoes. But, I am serving it with egg noodles.
Now, here is a little tip: I keep a bottle of olive oil mixed with our Dipping Oil Herb Blend handy all the time.
When I cook things like noodles, instead of just splashing some plain oil in the water, I like to add an herbed oil to boost the flavor of the noodles.
Once the noodles are ready just mix with the pork roast gravy. Simple.
A great thrifty leftover meal.
So, keep in mind, DTL Herb products are made to enhance food in different ways. Just because it says it is a “Dip”, don’t limit it to just using it as a dip.
