Our local grocery offered Pork Loin for $1.69 per lb prepackaged into almost 10 lb packages. He purchased this one a week or two ago, cut it into smaller portions, about 5-6, and vacuum sealed them for the freezer. We had one already and it was fork tender, cooked in the dutch oven at 350 degrees F.
The vacuum sealer keeps the meat safe
from freezer burn and when packed into our large deep freeze,
it is good for a very long time. We also take advantage of the
pressure cooker which can make a lesser cut of meat fork tender.
We'll have a few more meals to come out of this!
As meat prices skyrocket (hamburger $6/lb!!) we are keeping our
eyes out for great deals.
