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…

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.

Creole Spiced Pork Chops

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!

Chiapas Pot Roasted Pork - Cochito Chiapaneco

Chiapas Pot Roasted Pork - Cochito Chiapaneco by John Spottiswood

I adapted this delicious, crispy-edged meat recipe from Rick Bayless's Mexican Kitchen. Nancy and I used to eat at his restaurant, the Frontera Grill, when we lived in Chicago. I served this over black beans and rice along with my spicy Ropa Vieja recipe and it was a huge hit. This would be a great alternative to carnitas for a…

Good Ole Fashioned Southern Creecy Greens

Good Ole Fashioned Southern Creecy Greens by Smokinhotchef

A low-country delicacy of sorts, creecy greens are often not found in supermarkets like more common greens i.e. mustard, kale, collard. Supply in the rural country is mainly a matter of who can identify the tangy green by sight and if the 'patch' is large enough to divvy out any to others. Generally a 'mess' of salad will only yield…

Slow Cooker Polenta with Sausage Ragù

Slow Cooker Polenta with Sausage Ragù by Frank Fariello

Making polenta the old-fashioned way is a laborious job, as we all know, involving a lot of stirring over a good 45 minutes or more to reach the right, creamy consistency. Italians have developed any number of tricks to make the job a bit easier, as I have outlined in my post on How to Make Polenta. The slow cooker provides yet…

Catfish «en meurette»

Catfish «en meurette» by Frank Fariello

The term «en meurette» refers to a dish that has been braised in a particularly delicious red wine sauce from the Burgundy region of France. Probably the best known of these dishes is oeufs en meurette, made from poached eggs. But even tastier, in my opinion, is fish made this way. The firm-fleshed monkfish (lotte in French) lends…

Savory Country Style Corned Beef Hash

Savory Country Style Corned Beef Hash by Smokinhotchef

This recipe is a simple satisfying and quick meal. Canned corn beef is matched with potatoes, onions and green pepper for chunky forks full of flavor. With time constraints as well as trying to pinch pennies, it's nice to know you can happily create a meal for at least 4 people with just 1 can. Served simply with buttered or olive…

Verza e salsiccia (Cabbage and Sausage)

Verza e salsiccia (Cabbage and Sausage) by Frank Fariello

Not sure about you, but the weather here has crossed the line from pleasantly crisp to downright cold at night. That's as good an excuse as any for some good, stick to the ribs eating. It may sound eastern European, but Italians, too, like their cabbage, especially in colder weather, and like to combine it with pork. The typical…
