  • fast pork and tomatillo stew
    This is a really tasty, hearty, yet healthy way to enjoy pork tenderloin. In the first step, the pork browns beautifully. Once combined with the vegetables and beans, this one-pot meal quickly comes together. It is easy enough to pull off on a weeknight, but good enough for a comforting Sunday supper. I found this as a newspaper clipping amongst my mother-in-law's recipes. porkolive oilwatertomatillosjalapenooniongarliclime juicecilantrosaltblack beanscilantro sprigstortillascooked rice
  • jacques pepin's split pea soup with cracklings
    We were drawn to this recipe for several reasons. * We like split pea soup. * It makes use of leftover chicken skin. * Split peas are inexpensive. * It makes a big pot that can stretch over several meals or feed a party. * Leftovers freeze well. * It’s a Jaques Pepin recipe! We were pleased with the result and would definitely make it again the next time we have unused chicken skin. The crisped chicken skin kind of tastes like chicharon (deep-fried pork rind) in this dish. Adapted from Jacques Pepin's Essential Pepin. chicken skinonionsgarlichamwater or brothherbes de Provencesaltblack peppertabascosplit peas
  • Thai chicken & mushroom soup (doubled for parties and to store)
    I made this soup for friends and family during the 2013 holiday season. Everyone loved it! Processing the lemongrass and shallots is the most time-consuming part, so I now chop it up in a food processor. I'll make this doubled version of the recipe for parties, or I cook half of it at a time for smaller groups. To make the soup a meal, serve it over steamed brown rice. vegetable oilshallotslemongrasscilantrofish saucechicken brothcoconut milkcoconut milksugarwhite mushroomsskinless chicken breastslime juiceThai red curry pastefish saucesteamed brown ricecilantro leavesserrano chilesscallionslimes
