Midwest Chick and Mr. B. did invite us over to sleep at their house.
I had to ponder the invite, having a mental picture of their cement floor. And Mr. B. just got a new chain saw and they're only an hour or so away. Boy, that was hard to say no to.
But what to do for dinner? With friends helping troubleshoot the AC problem, I should be a grateful pal and make supper (oh look - cold Beer!)
Heating up the oven was out of the question. It's crock pot time. With a few odds and ends in the cupboard (a smash and dent sale at a local wholesaler netted some cans and jars of various products) and a couple extra thick (like two inches thick) pork chops the size of plates, this will be easy.
2 pounds extra thick cut pork chops (or pork steak)
1 cup Salsa (medium heat)
1 cup Zesty Italian Salad Dressing
1 medium sized can niblet corn
1 cup of Black Beans(canned or leftover cooked from dried, drained)
The juice of one whole lemon
1 packet McCormick Taco Seasoning
A heaping 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Throw everything in the crock pot and stir around, making sure the meat is covered with liquid. Cook on low 5-7 hours until meat shreds with a fork. Remove bones and serve. It will serve six, plenty for friends or leftovers to be microwaved another day.
