My favorite do-ahead party dish. Excellent taste, very easy to make, and perfect for everything from a casual to a formal dinner party, or even a buffet. It's great served with braised belgian endive or lightly sauteed broccoli rappe, green salad, wine, and even pasta. Versatile and easy dish. My go-to dish when we've got friends coming over, and I can't think of what to make.
Use the thick-cut pork chops for this not fast-fry and only dry breadcrumbs for this or they will not hold on to the chops and plan ahead the chops need to sit a room temperature for about 45 minutes before coating --- if desired for a lower fat option you may skip the skillet browning and just bake in the oven
A fabulous combination of heat and sweet makes this chilli and chocolate glazed pork a real winner. And, this Sophie Grigson recipe uses a very cheap cut of pork, so it makes a very economical meal; however, the unusual and exciting flavours would make this a great dinner party dish. Serve with assorted stir-fried vegetables, relishes and sauteed potatoes. The Aztec's were famous for using chocolate in their cooking, both savoury and sweet - and the addition of a good quality chocolate adds a deep and delicious dimension to this humble cut of belly pork.
A highly rated recipe from All Recipes.com/submitted by branchan that I have tweaked just slightly I feel for the better! ---I also use this rub on boneless Boston butt roast that I roast in the oven and then slice, for a pork loin about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of the rub should be enough although you may use more if desired --- the roast needs to marinate for a minimum of 6 hours or up to 24 hours in the fridge, then must sit out at room temperature for a couple hours before roasting, so plan well in advance, make certain to line your pan completely with foil, because of the brown sugar it will be very hard to clean, or use a heavy disposable foil pan.
Pork butt is a less-expensive cut, but cooking at a very low temperature ensures a tender, juicy roast, and it dissolves fat and connective tissue, This can also be made in a slow cooker set on high for 30 minutes, then turned down to low for the day, oven cooking time will vary depending on the size of your roast -- I have made this in the past, and it is very good! :)
If you like lots of gravy then double the whole cranberry sauce and French dressing, for a a larger roast adjust cooing time --- this also may be made successfully cooked in the oven at low temperature.
This recipe makes a delicious and flavorful roast. I use about 1/2 cup of maple syrup to baste the roast and add some brown sugar to the sweet potatoes when I mash them. I left the original recipe unchanged here to post for you. I love sweet potatoes with pork! I hope you enjoy this one!
Found this recipe the Raleigh (NC) News&Observer and I'm posting it b/c I do not want to lose it before I tried it (I'm good at throwing out the paper, forgetting I wanted to save something). Recipe from Sarah Foster of Foster's Market. Times do NOT include marinating pork in the frig.
These pork chops add a little zing to ordinary breaded pork chops. My whole family loves the spicy sweet flavor and I won't make plain ones again. If you are concerned about the fat and calories of frying, you can always bake them in the oven.
I learned this recipe from my mom and I still love it! While it does take some time to make, the outcome is just as good as take-out! You will need a Fry Daddy or a frying pan with oil in order to fry the meat. Put enough oil in the frying pan so that the meat can float to the top.
This is a weird Southern Indiana dip that I have learned is best when PRETZEL STICKS are dipped into it! I know it sounds odd, but it truly is addictive! It's kid-friendly too--my 6 year old son will sit with me for HOURS on the couch, just dipping pretzels into this stuff and eating! It also has a strange hold on grown men in Indiana who drink lots of beer while watching sports. They literally whine like girls if they don't have it when the Super Bowl begins...LOL! It's surprisingly delicious and addictive. :)
This is from the Company's Coming Christmas Cookbook, it would be good with broccoli too. I have made it for a couple Christmas dinners with raves. Plus that way you get your ham with your turkey. If you don't have fresh ham get a slab of black forest ham from the deli 1 inch thick. If having for a big meal you can easily serve 10 as a small side. It can be made a day ahead and baked the next day. Can also be a meal.
