My husband always says that I cook a "mean" pork chop! I will have to admit they do turn out great every time. I thought I would share my tips with you. I always cook the bone-in center cut chops because there is more flavor near the bone. I find them packaged as regular cut or thin cut...either is fine. I always use canola oil for frying. This recipe is for two pork chops. It is best not to crowd them in the pan even if you have to start again with another batch. The biggest secret is the temperature and to keep turning the chops over. In the directions you will find some other important tips.
Yes, silly name! I ate at a little Italian restaurant in the Bellagio Hotel on one of my MANY trips to Vegas. It was love at first bite! I begged and begged the waiter to get me the recipe. He even brought the chef out. The chef wrote down the ingredients on a napkin but would not give me amounts nor preparation instructions. I tweaked and tweaked and this is what I came up with. Funny thing is...I went back to that little restaurant after I came up with this version - ordered theirs again - and mine blew it out of the water! Hope you enjoy as well. It's delicious!
This is an amazing recipe for fresh beets, if you don't have any fresh beets you can substitute two 15-ounce cans drained small whole beets, halved or if they are large then quarter them, but I have to say that fresh beets are better! --- for the fresh beets you can boil them or I prefer to roast them in the oven in foil in a 400°F oven for about 30 minutes or until just fork-tender --- this is just as delicious cold as it is served hot! --- prep time does not include roasting the beets and cooking the onions.
A recipe from Cooking with the Noonday Chef 3 by Walter Lambert. Chef Walter, as he is known on a local news program, featured this recipe on his cooking segment. Produces a moist, dense loaf. The preparation time does not include time for the strawberries to sit in the refrigerator.
Over the year's people have called me Simpy, hence the recipe name. About 10 years ago, I have never heard of Carnitas, I had it one time in a restaurant and wanted to make it all the time. I found out how easy it was and just put my own twist on it. This is a very easy dish to make and very delicious.
This is a delicious butternut squash recipe from Ina Garten / The Barefoot Contessa. We really enjoy this during the holidays. It is best when the squash is cut in medium to large chunks so that the outside gets a maple-flavored crust, and the inside stays soft and delicious.
This I posted as requested. I myself love thai food. And my DH loves it more. You can use any squid, shell fish, beef or chicken. Slice the meat thin for quick cooking if using the meat or chicken. Make it as spicy as you like. This is a fast cooking recipe. Serve with Jasmine rice or noodles.
I'm in love with this soup!! A very good friend of mine made this for me recently and I fell in love. I'm very picky about my Tortilla Soup and this by far the best ever. She makes hers in the crock pot and I have to agree, that it's easy and tastes just wonderful!! Whatever you do, DO NOT skip the garnishes! They are the icing on the cake! UPDATE April 2010: Obviously I've made this so many times I never even look at the recipe anymore! But I wanted to add some variations that I play around with that are great. Like many reviewers black beans and corn are great additions. Sometimes I add them to the leftovers (if there are any :-) so that is feels like something new the next day! I have also made it several times with shredded pork which turns it into a pork carnitas type of soup. If you like it on the spicy and smoke side buy a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and mince up one or two and add it. And lastly, a little swizzle of half and half or heavy cream just minutes before serving makes it a creamy tortilla soup that is wonderful and it is also a good way to tone down the heat if it got away from you...
My aunt makes these for breakfast every time I visit - they are a great breakfast with fruit and yogurt and my favorite part of visiting. My mom makes a half batch during the week for breakfast as well. A full batch will make about 30-36 scones depending on scoop size.
Less than 30 minutes from start to finish! A light dessert that's tasty and not that bad for you either. This recipe could easily be altered to other flavors using different jello and yogurt flavors. From '01 Quick Cooking. Cook time listed is chilling time.
This banana bread from Janet and Greta Podleski is not just delicious but healthy, too! I made it using 1-1/2 cups of all-purpose flour mixed with 1/2 cup wheat bran, but if you live in an area where Robin Hood Nutri-Blend Flour is available, use 2 cups of that instead. Also, the bananas have to be VERY ripe for maximum sweetness, as this recipe has very little sugar in it.
