A standard Russian peasant dish handed down from my great-grandfather. Nothing fancy, but I haven't met anybody yet who doesn't like it. Great on chilly days. (Note: my family used to add a dab or two of butter to their plates, but that's optional.)
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.
I grew up working in our family restaurants around New Orleans, which is known as "The Big Easy" or "The Crescent City" (due to the shape of the Mississippi River which runs through the heart of this southern city). Like most mom & pop places, we always served Red Beans & Rice on Monday. Always! I've changed the restaurant version a bit to reflect the fact that I use my Crockpot now. I hope you enjoy these yummy beans as much as I did growing up and as my own family now does. Serve over hot, fluffy white rice and a warm piece buttered and grilled French Bread with a side salad or bowl of coleslaw. Sweet iced tea rounds this awesome southern dish off quite nicely.
This is a Jamie Oliver recipe which we tried when I was trying to convince two friends they would like fennel. It was so fabulous that it's become a staple. The finished roast is marvelous and leftovers (if you have any) are just as good warmed up or made into sandwiches. We generally make an apple and pear compote (apples, pears, lemon juice in a gratin dish in the oven beside the pork) to go with it. A fabulous meal, good enough for a holiday dinner.
Makes a great less than 30 minute week night dinner. An original recipe that I created for the 2 for 1: Leftovers Challenge in Cooking Photos. Make it your own by adding other or more veggies, and by increasing the hot red chili sauce--if you're a red hot lover. LOL
Not just for breakfast -- one of the many uses for leftover pork is to create a simple, fast and delicious hash with potatoes. Mmm... total comfort food! Add some perfectly cooked smoked bacon and I'm in hog heaven...so to speak.
I am posting this because I don't want to forget this!!! It used up the leftover pork roast and everyone liked it even better than the original meal...go figure. :) I made it again later with leftover pork tenderloin, too. It's great with corn tortillas or cornbread. Best of all it was quick and easy and my four year old spice-o-phobic liked it. The can sizes I guessed; they're just the standard size. This froze beautifully, too. And it is six GENEROUS servings.
My mom has been making this since I was a kid. She says she made it up with ingredients on hand. To me it is one of my favorite comfort foods! I adjusted the number of servings based on other comments and the fact that we usually at best serve 4 with it! I will also add as one reviewer noted, the amounts for celery, peas, onion are what my mom used. I often am pretty liberal with all of those.
A favorite stew recipe in my house as well as that of our frequent dinner guests. Meal in one with bread and butter. Prep time does not include pulling the chicken and pork which can be done a day or so in advance of making the stew.
Swift & Company provides this recipe which surely would have to rank in the "Top 10" of ways to turn the ordinary pork chop into something extraordinary. It's an easy fix & the use of Dijon mustard & brie cheese provides its "French connection".
BOY, does this look good.... if you like blue cheese. I highly recommend a moist blue cheese as opposed to a more crumbly one to facilitate making the sauce. Nabbed with no shame whatsoever from allrecipes.com.
