This is the last week of sharing pork recipes. I hope that you have learned some new recipes to make healthy delicious food for your family. I’ve really branched out from our typical pork chops with rice! This has all been part of a campaign with the National Pork Board to help folks realize that pork is a healthy lean meat choice. I also learned that you only need to cook pork to 145 degrees, that was possibly the highlight of the month for me. No more dry over cooked pork!
If you are just joining in, the National Pork Board wants everyone to make a healthy living challenge. It can big or small, but at least come up with some goal to strive for with your health. I have made a few, but the one I’ve stuck with the best has been getting at least 30 minutes of exercise 6 days a week. It was a big change for me, but I’ve really gotten to enjoy those 30 minutes. I even got my husband to join me!
Each week, there has also been a sale on a different cut of pork at Publix. This week pork cutlets are on sale, so that’s what we used for our recipe.
I made Pork Quesadilla’s, definitely a first for me… they were delicious, but I learned that I am not a master quesadilla maker. I was determined to flip them to melt cheese on both sides in the skillet pan. I only succeeded once out of 6 tries. All the others tasted fine, but they didn’t look so pretty. It probably didn’t help that I had stuffed them pretty full with peppers and onions.
If you are curious, we modified the recipe slightly to use corn tortillas and shredded our own cheese. This way it made them gluten free so everyone in the house could enjoy them. I also added green peppers to add more zero point filler to the recipe (weight watchers friendly).
