Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

One of the secrets to perfect Italian pasta is to finish cooking the pasta in the sauce. If you master and understand this dish, you will understand the art of Italian pastas and pasta sauces which is all about putting very simple ingredients together in just the right way. Try using my Fresh Garden Tomato Sauce (see Notes).

Pork Fried Rice

Rating: 4.52 stars
This is my revised version of another pork fried rice recipe. I often substitute chicken for pork, and it doesn't change anything. I have used both basmati rice and long-grain rice which gives the dish only a slight flavor difference. I have also added celery in the past with good outcomes. Enjoy.
