CInco de Mayo Pork Chops over Cilantro Rice

  Here’s a simple way to make tough thick-cut pork chops fork-tender with a Mexican flavor profile.  I needed to find a recipe for a couple of disappointing pork chops that I knew needed a long braising time.  It just happened to be Cinco de Mayo, and I put together this recipe based on several

Kitchen Tapestry: Baked Stuffed Apples

I had intended this as a side dish but it actually came out as the star of the dinner plate.  A perfectly balanced recipe between savory and sweet, it would lend itself well as a hearty accompaniment to any variety of entrees, like roasted meat or poultry and might be a more flavorful and visually

Pig Shots

The 4th of July is for grilling and this appetizer is easy to make, visually arresting and delicious with or without margaritas.  I’m not sure who came up with this idea first, but I owe my education to a cigar buddy who told me about them over a year ago.  I did a search for

Double-Cut Pork Chop Stuffed with Spinach, Roasted Tomatoes & Goat Cheese

I may have one other recipe adapted from the so-called celebrity chef, Giada de Laurentiis, which says something about either how little I watched her show or how little I think of her cooking. In fact, I wasn’t inspired by her recipe so much as I stumbled upon it while searching online for any recipe

Berkshire Pork Tomahawk Chops with Shallot & Cherub Tomato Pan Gravy

I am fond of quoting George Carlin:  “Most people are really f-ing stupid.  Should we just adopt all of their standards?”  The little ol’ pork chop – the one you see in Styrofoam containers wrapped in cellophane at your neighborhood grocery store – is a good study in just how stupid people can be.

Pork Belly Bites with Pickled Watermelon Radishes

Normally and with maybe two or three exceptions, I don’t post a recipe until I’ve perfected it.  In some cases, like this one, I’ll post it more or less as I prepared it, but with a couple of modifications I would make the next time around.  I’ll edit the recipe again if the results are

Beer Braised & Broiled Pork Belly

  I have been studying up on the dining prospect of preparing pork belly for dinner one night. As is typical in the Internet culinary world, opinions are diverse in how to prepare this lowly cut of pork that until recently, hasn’t been getting a lot of attention short of preparing it as bacon.  In

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

My mother was French Canadian, but I recall her mentioning that a fair number of Polish people lived in the small Ontario town where she grew up.  She said there were certain parts of the city where you could walk down the street and smell garlic cooking.  To be sure, someone there would likely have

Low-and-Slow Pork Roast

  I have a bunch of pork roast recipes, a repository of which, including this one, can be found here.  In most cases, I am using what is referred to as a Boston Butt or pork blade roast, because the cut includes part of the animal’s shoulder blade.  It is also sometimes called a pork

Mediterranean Pork Chops

I was looking for something other than a baked or oven-fried pork chop last night, and this is what I created on the spur of the moment.  You will need a cast iron skillet for this dish, or some other vessel that can go from stove top to a four-hundred degree oven.  This recipe also
