Slow Cooker Char Siu {Chinese BBQ Pulled Pork}

Two of my favorites, pulled pork and any kind of Asian food…in one dish. Yeah, I’m in love. Especially since traditional pulled pork can be pretty fatty and this absolutely isn’t. So I can eat it guilt free. YESSSS. This flavorful pork (char siu), after eight hours in the slow cooker, absolutely falls apart and […]

Easy Cutlets with Pan Sauce

One of my family’s favorite weeknight dishes is chicken or pork cutlets with a simple pan sauce. So many cooks finish the sauce with butter or cream to thicken it, but I’ve found that simply reducing the sauce is really all you need to do, making the dish so much healthier. When I make chicken […]

{Slow Cooker} Spicy Pulled Pork Tostadas with Lime Cumin Slaw

I’m not even joking, this spicy pulled pork is incredible. I thought I was a barbeque pulled pork girl, but I’m going to have to convert. You might be thinking – pulled pork – on a diet website? I know. It sounds crazy. But pork can be lean, especially if you give it a good […]

Crock Pot Savory Asian Meatballs

These Asian-inspired meatballs combine a traditional meatball, with scallions, ginger, and Chinese five-spice powder. This recipe is truly hearty, perfect for cooler evenings. I prefer to use the leanest ground meats I can find, but I’ve also found that fattier varieties sometimes cook a little better, so the choice is really up to you. For […]

Hatch Green Chile and Pork Stew

I love this time of year in Central Texas when the grocery stores are filled with everything “Hatch”…that’s Hatch green chiles from Hatch, New Mexico.  My local store has Hatch peppers in sausage, burgers, cheese, dips, chips, hot or mild roasted, you name it. Today I picked up a large container of freshly roasted Hatch […]

Pepper Crusted Pork Chops

My husband and I came to the conclusion that this may be our favorite way to prepare pork chops; they come out juicy, and full of flavor. We’ve been making pork chops this way for what seems like forever, and we finally wrote down our preparation process. You can use any fresh spices, but I […]

Your favorite lean sausage makes a scrumptious addition to traditional pepper skewers.

Garlic Lemongrass Grilled Pork Loin

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we are blessed with an abundance of diverse cuisines. Just down the road, there are some fabulous Korean grills, amazing Greek food, lots of great sushi bars, and my favorite, Vietnamese. I usually go for the pho, a traditional and deliciously fragrant beef noodle soup. Even my four year old […]
