Pork Loins

H and I went through the freezer the other day. We have TWENTY-ONE pork loins. Obviously, we don't eat them. In fact, we really don't eat much pork as that's pretty much all that is left from the huge mixed meat box FIL gifted us at Christmas.

What would you do with 21 pork loins?

We have 3 large (24 oz?) bags of spinach, snow peas, and okra that I don't know what to do with either.

Re: Pork Loins

  • Could we take some of them off your hands?  Will likes pork and chicken, but not beef, which we can get from the in laws for free.  We'll pay for them!

    Not sure on the veggies.  Are they mixed bags, or separate?  I like snow peas in stir fry, but hate okra, so don't have a clue what to do with it.

  • For the okra, you could use it in gumbos, or other stews that need thickening.  However, I don't know if it was the brand I bought or what, but the frozen okra I had was WAY gummy, and I couldn't eat it (and usually I don't mind most textures).  Also, you may want to fry the okra.  I have done this:  just cut in to slices (or keep whole) and bread with panko.  Very good with ranch to dip in.

  • I love okra when I order it at restaurants, but agree that this was super gummy.

    The veggies are separate.

    I wouldn't mind sharing some of the pork loins. I'd have to double-check with H just to be sure he doesn't care. I'll be in DM the afternoon of the 11th.

  • I would grill some up and then slice it and eat it on a sandwich. It's good!
