Okay girls I'm starting a new thing. Y'all know I don't like to cook, BUT one of my New Year's goals was to feed my family better. So I'm working on it. You'll be happy to know since the first of the year I've cooked ALOT. Like 2-3 times a week...and then we eat leftovers and go out, but that's beside the point.
Every week I will share a recipe and you can link up too. It has to be healthy and quick...not a lot of fancy ingredients. My recipes will be geared toward the Diabetes diet that I'm on and will probably be slow cooker 'cause that's just how I roll.
My recipe this week is my super yummy cuban sandwiches I made the other night. I got the idea from my slow cooker recipe book, but then changed it up like my favorite restaurant, so it's almost my creation...ha;) I do not photograph food well so bear with me. If you want to see a gorgeous foodie blog with amazing gluten free recipes visit my friend Lissa at Keep it Simple, Keep it Fresh. Photographing food really is an art form. I just don't have the patience to stage it perfectly. When my food is ready I don't want to whip out my camera...I want to EAT it!
SUPER YUMMY CUBAN SANDWICHES:
Add one 2-3 pound pork sirloin roast to slow cooker. Add 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and one cup water. Turn on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-6. The last 15 minutes throw in some sliced red, yellow or orange sweet peppers...as many as you want.
Toast some sliced buns in the oven (350 degrees) for 5-7 minutes...add some swiss cheese and broil until melted. I used steak rolls...ciabatta rolls would be really good too.
Add shredded pork to toasted bun, 2 slices of canadian bacon, spicy mustard and a sandwich sliced dill pickle! ENJOY!!!
Okay girls...so grab my button, link up to your recipe post URL, NOT your blog url (it can be an old post) and let's feed our families. It should be a helpful resource for those of us who struggle with meal plannning.
Hope you join in.
Have a blessed day.
