Pepper Pork Chops

Pepper Pork Chops

In December I tried Alton Brown’s Pepper Pork Chops in the slow cooker. I liked them (a fair amount, in fact) but never got around to writing about them, unfortunately. Now that it’s January and I feel lacking in inspiration, I thought I would give […]

Schnucks had boneless pork shoulders on sale for a while, so I stocked up. One of the things I wanted to do to one was make Soy and Cola Braised Pork Shoulder. I bought a bottle of full-sugar cola because I wanted to try this […]

Homesick Texan Carnitas

Homesick Texan Carnitas

Carnitas are delicious! That said, my experience with them at restaurants was hit-or-miss – sometimes they were good, and sometimes they weren’t. The delicious experiences stuck with me, though, so I was excited when Deb at Smitten Kitchen posted about Homesick Texan Carnitas. This recipe […]

362: Fennel-Crusted Pork Loin with Potatoes and Pears

A few years ago, Alex asked all of our friends to give me recipes for my birthday. Best present ever! However, it’s taken me a little while to start making them. My friend Allison gave me five, and this is just the second one I’ve […]

I’d thought about making sausage patties before, and I just happened across a recipe one day. I had a package of ground pork in the freezer, so I decided to make Spiced Maple Sausage Patties for breakfast for one Sunday morning. I tried to make […]
