Spicy Italian Pork Cutlets

Rating: 4.5 stars 231
A delicious garlic and fresh tomato sauce covers tender pork cutlets. Serve with crusty bread, a leafy salad, and maybe a side of buttered pasta with a little of the sauce on top. Terrific and fast.

Doreen's Ham Slices on the Grill

Rating: 4.5 stars 175
This is a longtime favorite of my family -- even the most selective 'diners' like it! Cooked ham is basted with a warm, zesty sauce while grilling. Smoked turkey slices may be substituted for ham.

Apple Butter Pork Loin

This is the best pork recipe I've ever made. This pork is seasoned with a spiced apple butter, and roasted in apple juice. If food can be warm and cozy, this is it--a great Sunday dish!

This recipe came from my mom. It takes little time since it requires basting, but the end result is worth it. Makes a truly elegant meal served with mashed red potatoes and a green vegetable.

Tangy Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Rating: 4.5 stars 531
This is a quick, easy and very flavorful recipe. I've made it many times. Plan ahead because the pork needs to marinate.

Slow Cooker Southern Lima Beans and Ham

Rating: 4.5 stars 93
I searched your website for the simple lima bean recipe that my mom used to make and the one that is served by many restaurants here in the south as a side dish. I couldn't find one, so I submitted my own. This is an easy, basic lima bean dish with ham, onion, and seasonings. Served over Mexican cornbread, it makes a delicious hearty meal. You can also do this on the stovetop. Just follow the directions on the back of the lima bean bag and add the seasonings. Slow cooker time is about 7 hours. Add a side salad for a complete meal.
