Ants Climbing a Tree: March 5, 2013
Good with ground beef, but better, I think, with pork; and do try using hot chili sesame oil at the beginning and the end to bump up the heat (and the flavor) just a little bit.
Bacon, Baked, Best!: June 13, 2018
Bacon, Bourbon Candied: November 3, 2016
Bacon, Deviled: June 20, 2013
Breakfast food? Sammich filler? Snack? It’s ALL good; and don’t fret too much about all that hot sauce… the bourbon smooths things out nicely.
Bacon Jam: December 16, 2010
Parfait! Bacon Jam: March 1, 2013
Still unsure of how to serve this? Make a batch this weekend, then check out next Friday’s Parfait! post for two, pretty cool (I think) new applications.

Bacon, Snoop Dogg’s: December 20, 2016

Bahn Mi: October 20, 2015
One of my very favorite sammiches, really, really delicious, and made with… wait for it… SPAM! No, REALLY, it’s very, very good!
Barbecued Ribs: April 28, 2010
Pork or beef ribs work nicely, even country-style.

Chops, Creole, With Lemon and Thyme: January 18, 2017
Chops, Gateway: November 27, 2012
I thought these chops, marinated in apple juice with a maple seasoning mix from my favorite spice shop, were wicked tasty; but you could easily substitute your own favorite seasoning blend, and mebbe add a bit of maple syrup (try to get grade b, it’s more flavorful for cooking).

Chops, Boneless (or Tenderloin), Oven Fried: July 16, 2013
2 boneless pork chops are pounded thin, marinated in buttermilk, then dredged in flour and panko crumbs and baked. Nice; but after that, the two chops – now four paillards, are turned into two very different dinners. First, a riff on the classic Midwestern pork tenderloin sammich, and then, open-faced pork parmesan sammiches with fresh mozzarella and basil from teh garden. Yum.
Chops, Steak-Style: October 5, 2015

Chops, Ranch-Style Baked: April 25, 2012
Chops, Pineapple Terryaki: November 4, 2013
Chops, Travelers’: February 22, 2016
Dinner in a nice (but bare) rental kitchen doesn’t have to be take away or frozen food; I made these tender, tasty grilled chops with a minimum of muss or extra fuss.
Chops, Zippy, The Doris Project, Week 34: September 3, 2014
These slow cooker pork chops are good, but think beyond the chop and mebbe go for zippy pulled pork for sammiches and ???
Cubano Sammich: January 4, 2017
Grilled ham and cheese and pickles and mustard and nicely spiced Cuban-style mayonnaise.
Cuban Style Pork: July 5, 2016

Small, boneless hams need a bit of attention, too!
Ham Steak, René: May 3, 2012
An old-school recipe that still works today – mostly. I would recommend trying my substitutions and additions at the bottom of the post. Still, a nice spring dinner with roasted asparagus and home made mac and cheese.
Kielbasa, Sweet & Sour: October 1, 2012
You could serve this as an appetizer, but I thought it made for a fine dinner, however you choose to use it, think about adding a few fresh basil leaves at the end.
Kielbasa, Vinaigrette: August 28, 2012
Parfait! Linguiça ‘n Beer: June 22, 2012
Set aside your brats and your Italian sausages and prepare yourself for a treat – IF you can find the real deal linguiça. If your market doesn’t carry it, you can always order some from the nice folk at Gaspar’s. Or come over by here on sausage night.
Meatballs: April 14, 2010

Meatballs: Thousand Island: June 3, 2015
Meatloaf, Muffin Tin: October 8, 2013
A nice riff on your traditional meatloaf – made single serve size in a large muffin tin.

Spanish Sausage Rice: December 30, 2010

Stew, French?: October 15, 2012
An advertisement from 1969 set me to come up with this stew recipe using some of my own home made Catalina French dressing. Authentically French? Probably not, but still pretty darned tasty.

Tenderloin, Coffee Rubbed: September 8, 2016
