Carnitas

Carnitas by Sergio Hernandez

Carnitas are the Mexican version of pulled pork. Braised first in a spicy sauce, pork shoulder is slow cooked until so tender the meat just shreds easily with a fork, then it's roasted at high heat to make crispy browned bits full of flavor.

Spicy Coconut Chicken Curry

Spicy Coconut Chicken Curry by John Spottiswood

This is more of an Indian than Thai curry, and has a condensed, pungent sauce. It is unusual and really wonderful. Curries are hit or miss with our kids, but they all loved this one (except for the peas...which meant more for me!) We served this with a brown/white rice mix and steamed brocco-flower. The sauce on this is so pungent…

Barbacoa De Cabeza

Barbacoa De Cabeza by Sergio Hernandez

Barbacoa de Cabeza is a slow cooked dish prepared with parts from the head of a cow, such as the cheeks. Popular in South Texas, I've adapted the dish to be cooked using your Slow Cooker, Pressure Cooker, or Smoker/Oven Combo to create this tasty dish.

St. Patrick's Day Beef Stew with Guinness

St. Patrick's Day Beef Stew with Guinness by John Spottiswood

This is a great Beef Stew adapted from a recipe by Margaret Johnson. We doubled the recipe, used about half the butter, and added plenty of salt and black pepper. We also cooked it about 5 hours ahead of time and let it sit in the pot for another 3 hours after it was done cooking. It was awesome.

Creole Spiced Pork Chops by Amos Miller

Pork chops with chops! These nicely spiced cuts can be toned up or down, depending on your taste. Gluten-free diners will enjoy these with King Arthur, Domata or Hodgson Mill flour. All Purpose works just fine. Thanks to Chef Austin for the inspiration!

Polenta con salsicce e spuntature

Polenta con salsicce e spuntature by Frank Fariello

Rome is not especially known for its love of polenta, perhaps because its winters are relatively mild compared with those up in true polenta country skirting the southern rim of the Alps, but there is one polenta dish you are bound to find if you visit Rome in the cold weather months, polenta with sausages and spareribs simmered in…

Elegant Shrimp Scampi Pasta Lightened Up

Elegant Shrimp Scampi Pasta Lightened Up by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

For a romantic dinner, try this superb shrimp, sauteed in a buttery, garlic and lemon wine sauce. It doesn’t get easier to prepare yet it taste so indulgent. Instead of having to prep the raw shrimp, by deveining and such, I like to use cooked shrimp. It’s so much easier and cooks in minutes! The skinny for each generous serving is…

Jameson Whiskey-Braised Pork Shoulder With Irish Colcannon

It was created by chef Dirk Flanigan of The Gage restaurant in Chicago and is it ever wonderful. Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish with buttery creamy mashed potatoes folded into a mix of…

Chinese Braised Oxtails with Root Vegetables

Chinese Braised Oxtails with Root Vegetables by Joyce Leung

A hearty oxtail dish with star anise, Chinese mushroom, daikon and carrots. The oxtails turn tender when cooked slow and the bones add a lot of favor to the meat.

Slow-Braised Atlanta Brisket

Slow-Braised Atlanta Brisket by Foodiewife

Brisket is a cut of beef that can be very tough, unless it is slow-braised or with a slow barbecue method. The patience pays off, because the meat becomes very tender and moist. I saw this recipe on Cook's Country, and was intrigued that the recipe name comes from using Coca Cola (from where the soft drink originates). Instead of…

Chicken and Eggplant Tagine

Chicken and Eggplant Tagine by John Spottiswood

I was shopping for a chicken and eggplant stew and both the eggplant and the bell peppers were on sale...so I bought extra. We ended up making two different recipes that called for chicken and eggplant two nights in a row, so we were able to really compare. While we all loved the other recipe (chicken and eggplant stew..on this…

Southern Low Country Braised Pig's Feet

Southern Low Country Braised Pig's Feet by Smokinhotchef

This recipe sings low country with high notes. A very significant part of African American heritage and culture. Pig's feet, along with the other 'undesirable' discarded parts, like ears and chittlins' were a staple in the slaves' diets as well as pinto beans and cornbread, also their personal vegetable gardens. This was sustainable…

Pasta a risotto (Risotto-style Pasta)

Pasta a risotto (Risotto-style Pasta) by Frank Fariello

One of the guilty pleasures that I have never, up to now, revealed to a living soul is my penchant for late-night pasta snacks. But not just any pasta, but pastina of the kind usually used for soups, cooked in just enough liquid (usually a mixture of water and milk) so that by the time the liquid has almost evaporated, the pasta if…
