CHA SIU BAO - STEAMED BBQ PORK BUNS

CHA SIU BAO - STEAMED BBQ PORK BUNS by Linda Tay Esposito

The char siu bao is a dimsum staple. Sweet, juicy bits of Chinese bbq pork oozing out of the soft, sweet bun. The secret to creating that char siu bao taste is to use dried onions (McCormicks). Please look up the Basic Yeast Dough for Steamed Buns that accompanies this recipe. If you don't have steamer baskets, use a wok…

Balinese BBQ Pork Roast - Babi Guling

Balinese BBQ Pork Roast - Babi Guling by John Spottiswood

My cousin Brett recently went to Bali for his honeymoon, so I decided to try the most famous Balinese dish for July 4th this summer. This pork came out soft and tasty like the meat you eat at a Luau, but with a delicious complexity of flavors from the chiles, garlic, ginger, lemongrass and turmeric. The process of slicing the roast…

Quick Meat Curry

Quick Meat Curry by John Spottiswood

I've been looking for recipes from Indian-American moms who love the rich flavors of Indian food but who need to get meals on the table quickly. So I'm really enjoying the book Saffron to Sassafras written by the Indian Women's Association of Louisiana.in Baton Rouge. There is nothing original about this simple recipe except the…

Barbecue Pork Ribs - Hawaiin style

Barbecue Pork Ribs - Hawaiin style by Daniel Miyasaki

I've been cooking pork ribs for many years in many different styles. This is my favorite. It's not a lot of work and everyone who has tried them has raved about them. They are even better as left overs the next day. They are very flavorful, so you don't need to eat a lot to have a great dish. Try with white or brown rice, some…

Crockpot Carne Adovada Recipe

Crockpot Carne Adovada Recipe by John Spottiswood

We had this for dinner tonight and it was fantastic. The complexity of flavors - sweet, salty, spicy, and savory - is really amazing. It's better than 99% of the dishes I've ever been served in a mexican restaurant. I loved the carne adovada I had in Santa Fe, but I honestly don't remember any that matched this. If you try this…

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork Roast

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork Roast by Robyn Savoie

I was craving cranberries. So I pulled out this recipe I had for a little while and made it for dinner tonight. I rely on a can of cranberry sauce to create the sweet tangy sauce for this tender pork entree. This is nicely seasoned as it simmers by using cranberry and/or orange juice, ground cloves and ground mustard. My…

Grilled Pork Chops with Caribbean Wet Rub

Grilled Pork Chops with Caribbean Wet Rub by John Spottiswood

We served these pork chops over black beans and rice. It was a great combination. We took the wet rub from a recipe for pork tenderloin in Cooks Illustrated. I'm not sure it's powerful enough for a tenderloin unless it's butterflied, but it was wonderful on the pork chops. Normally we brine our pork chops before putting on the rub.…

Cuban Pork

Cuban Pork by John Spottiswood

I adapted this recipe from a very popular cuban pork recipe on Allrecipes. I used boneless country style ribs instead of pork roast, because they were on sale and easier! I also boiled instead of roasting, because I find it makes the pork even more tender. I was very happy with the results. Incredibly flavorful and wonderful over…

Jerk Pork

Jerk Pork by John Spottiswood

Traditional Jerk Pork is made with the whole pig. I've been successful, though, with the Pork Shoulder roast. It's advantages are it's is widely available, cheap, and suitably moist and tasty! Watch the spices you use and adjust if kids are going to be eating it. If not, spicier is better! I made this for a HUGE party, so cut…

Grilled Asian Pork Loin

Grilled Asian Pork Loin by John Spottiswood

We had a BBQ party today and served pork loin with two different types of marinade. This one was universally loved. It has a wonderful sweet and salty flavor. The kids definitely preferred this one, though the adults were more evenly split. Easy to make and perfect for a large BBQ party! The picture didn't turn out very well, but…

Barbecue Pork Ribs

Barbecue Pork Ribs by John Spottiswood

This is my father-in-law's famous ribs recipe. He's a well traveled dentist, and has served this to friends and colleagues from all over the country. Most will tell you honestly they are the best ribs they have ever had. This is what our kids ask for when they are at Grandpa's house near their birthday and they get to pick the…

Folks ask if they can use smoked sausage, andouille sausage, ham, smoked butt and all kinds of other meats. The answer is, sure - its a free country. This recipe will also work with venison. But you will not truly experience Creole cooking if you do not use 'Pickle Meat', especially pickled pork, when you make Red Beans to go…
