What to do with a large pork loin?

Make 6 meals for 7 people...I'll show you how!
Cut wrapper off of loin by making a slit down the middle and cutting the edges to unfold keeping the loin in the plastic. (for easy removal after cutting up the loin)

What to do with a large pork loin?

First pick the smaller side and cut into slices for 1) Sweet n Sour Pork with Rice. Remember you don't need too much for this. Cut the next 7 chops with pockets for 2) Stuffed PorkChops. Cut 7 more chops for 3) Maple Balsamic Pork Chops. Cut a nice ten inch section and spiral cut for 4)Stuffed Spinach Pork. Cut the last section about a pound worth for 5) Shredded BBQ Pork Sandwiches and last but not least their may be odd ends grind them up and make a 6) Spicy Pork Sausage! Whew!!!! I usually prepare the stuffing for the stuffed pork chops and stuff them and freeze them for later. Wrap them up and label and freeze. Recipes will come later.

Made into sausage and froze for breakfast

Diced and put in freezer for later use for the Sweet N Sour Pork with Rice.

Stuffed Pork Chops (used the same recipe for the stuff pork loin and put into the freezer)

Cranberry Stuffed Pork Loin

I usually follow the recipe on a package of stove top dressing I add dried cranberrys, 1 cup diced celery and 1/2 diced onion to the mix before cooking it.
Cut your pork loin in a I_I shape so you can stuff with the stuffing and roll up. Tye with twine and place in baking dish. Bake at 350 for 1 hour til juices run clear.
I use extra stuffing that was left over to stuff the pork chops and freeze for future meal. (Pic below of stuffed pork chops)

Sweet N Sour Pork with Rice

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Ok I place small pork loin (about 1 1/2 lbs.) in Crock Pot and pour 1/2 can of coke on it with 1/2 of onion soup mix package! Cook in crock pot 6 hours or so! Take pork out and shred it with two forks and place back in crock pot. Add 1 small can tomato sauce and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Let simmer a little longer put on buns and serve with chips. i used large crescents from the bakery and added diced tomato and shredded lettuce to it! Very good

I've bought about three of them by now! Super quick to pull out a frozen stuffed pork chop and bake.
