National Pork Month Giveaway: Win $50 for Costco Just in Time for the Holidays

This giveaway is closed. Congratulations to Beth S. who commented, “Love the fresh ingredients they use, such as ginger root! Hope I win!”

Now that there’s a crispness to the air here in Nashville I am already starting to think about the holidays! Key word: think. I’m notorious for waiting until the last minute to do any actual shopping. Ahem.

Speaking of my house, though, there are two short and loud people and one husband here at dinner time every night and darn it if they don’t actually expect a nice hot meal nightly! I like to mix up dinner a bit and try recipes that are more fitting for fall this time of year and I’ve dusted off my slow cooker (aka a busy mom’s BFF kitchen appliance.) One of my favorite things to make in the fall is a pork tenderloin. It’s a cut of pork that my entire family likes. Hoorah!

October is National Pork Month and Costco is offering discounts on top pork cuts from chops and roasts to pork tenderloin and boneless loins. Costco members can take advantage of weekly savings ranging from $2.00-$2.50.

This week’s featured cut of pork on sale is Sirloin Tip Roast and now through October 14 it’s priced at $2.00 off at your neighborhood Costco store. I don’t know about you but I love ANY excuse to go to Costco! Available only at Costco, the sirloin tip roast is a flavorful, marbled cut perfect for the slow cooker and great for entertaining. It easily feeds a big crowd on a small budget.

Looking for great recipes for the holidays? I worked with the National Pork Board early this year on a series of recipes featuring pork and learned just how versatile it is, making it perfect for holiday meal planning. I like to try new recipes but I don’t have a lot of time for kitchen prep. Pork can be dressed up with ease making you look like a rock star in the kitchen.

Just an fyi on the cooking front, the USDA has reduced the temperature guideline for pork loins, chops and roasts from 160 to 145 degrees F, with a three minute rest. This will yield a juicy, flavorful product that may be pinker in color than most home cooks are used to. Ground pork, like all ground meat, should still be cooked to an internal temp of 160 degrees.

    I like when she said the pork cut was the only cut that has the American Heart Assocation’s Seal of Approval.

  2. Jamie@SouthMainMuse says:

    I’m glad to learn that the pork tip roast is a lean cut. I love a good barbecued pork butt—but can’t eat that every night. And putting it on the orange and onion to roast sounds really yummy.

  3. Richard Morris says:

    i like how they show you what it’s supposed to look like when it’s done so u know what you’re working towards

  4. Amber says:
