Smoke Grilled Pork Chop Burritos Had a number of smoke grilled bone-in pork chops left over from a grill on Big Joe earlier in the week. Cut the meat off the bone. Put all the bones and any residual meat still on them in a small pot barely covered with water and boiled for a while and then reduced to make a small amount of very concentrated stock. Cubed the pork, and coarse ground it in small batches in food processor. Here are the ingredients for the seasoned meat. Went simple and basic on the flavorings to not disguise the meat. I only used the canned chipotles in adobo sauce and did not need the salsa. Sweated the onions and garlic (minced and some whole toes). Then added the pork, spices and seasonings (cumin, chili powder, dried Mexican oregano, salt), the chipotles (chopped with the adobo sauce) and the quick homemade stock. I went with simple flavorings. Cooked on low to medium heat covered stirring frequently for 30 minutes or so. Longer if you want - just watch the liquid/moisture - you need some but not an excess as the mixture is cooking. Near the end I removed the lid and let remaining moisture evaporate. Remove from heat and add some squeezes of fresh lime. Serve with usual fixings – in this case shredded sharp cheddar, lettuce and tomato in a warmed large flour tortilla. Roll it up and enjoy. Hot sauce on the side and a slice of lime for additional individual seasoning. Sour cream would have been good too but alas there was none in the fridge. Simple quick and a good re-purposing of the Big Joe smoke grilled pork chops. Delicious, too!
Cochinita? Yeah I’ve got lots of it. How do I use it for leftover? One way is Breakfast Burritos. Here are some onions, potatoes, bell pepper and cochinita all cooked up and ready to go. Add the huevos, stir, and roll them up in a warm tortilla with some cheese and Tapatio. Muy bueno!
Remember this cook? http://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/14101-25%E2%80%9D-ribeye-steak/ Well what do you do with 3 lbs of cooked steak when my wife isn’t a big fan of red meat? Since she loves Mexican food you make steak burritos with it. Here is approximately 1 1/2 lbs diced up. Now in the CI skillet with some frijoles in back. I added approximately 1/2 cup of this sauce. (Good stuff) This is what it looks like after being heated. Now heated up a tortilla and added some frijoles, steak mixture and cheese while still on the griddle to keep everything hot. Now some Pico de Gallo, sour cream, lettuce and some Tapatio hot sauce. And rolled. Delicious! Thanks for looking.
So, you know when you go to Costco they have the carts and booths giving out samples? Well we went to Costco and came back with a couple of the products they were doing samples of. The first was some freeze dried hash browns. Normally I like use whole potatoes but sometimes they go soft and start sprouting numerous appendages. I purchased these for just this type of occasion. The next item was some soy chorizo. This is very tasty and not nearly as greasy as regular chorizo. This is the thing my wife hates about chorizo and she liked this stuff so I figured what the heck. The next day I decided to use both my new food products and make chorizo and eggs breakfast burritos with potatoes. First I sautéed some onion and bell pepper. I then added the chorizo, cooked them and let them melt together. Now add the eggs, mix and cook. Next I cooked up the hash browns. And now we assemble the burritos starting with some sour cream. Add some hash browns. And the chorizo and eggs mixture. Mexican cheese and some pico de gallo. (Not pictures is a finishing touch of some Tapatio hot sauce) And it’s a wrap! Buenos Dias!
