What's for dinner tonight? May 11, 2016

I'm doing an experiment with my Instant Pot multicooker tonight. I've seen many mentions of people cooking meat from frozen in it. I made a small batch of canned tomatillo salsa a couple weeks ago, so I'm using a pint of that as the liquid and two pork shoulder steaks. After they cook at pressure, I'll add a couple servings of farmers market green beans and cook those with the sauce. We'll see how it goes.

I also have farmers market tomatoes (probably from Florida), avocados and sweet onion, and some leftover diced pineapple. Thinking about making all that into a salsa to serve with the pork. Or maybe I'll reconsider. Haven't decided yet

What's going on at your house?

My mouth is watering That chutney sounds like a great flavor combination.

I have a pan of Chinese style side ribs in the oven. GF is grabbing some fried rice, egg rolls, and stir fried greens from the take out on her way home from the deli...I had a day off so I could wallow in the crawlspace under the kitchen to fix a pipe that was temporarily repaired due to a rupture this past winter...

It's another picture perfect day here so I'm firing up the grill to cook a couple of burgers.

I'm having the leftover grilled country style pork rib from yesterday, sliced cucumber and radishes, and a bowl of watermelon. Warm day here today so that should hit the spot.

The sausage also had ginger in it. I forgot to put that in my original post. The chutney was good, though I ended up adding more brown sugar because it was too vinegary. Ended up being great after the addition. Maybe cut down vinegar by 1/4 cup and also cut cooking time by about 10-15 minutes or so because it basically turned into applesauce.

Have to admit, I wasn't impressed with the salt crusted potatoes, nor was Craig, WAY too salty even though I used one of the recipes with the least amount of salt. We ended up rinsing in water to get most of the salt off.
