Goan Pork Vindaloo

Rating: 4.5 stars 17
The traditional Goan pork dish flavored with chilies, garlic and vinegar. It's spicy and tangy at the same time. Leaves your taste buds tingling for more. Serve with rice or crusty rolls.

Pork Osso Buco

Rating: 4.5 stars 45
Pork shank isn't as rich as veal, but I like it better in osso buco. Still, if you want veal you can use it here too.

Pork Chow Mein

Rating: 4.5 stars 13
This was a favorite with the grand kids. I sometimes use chicken breast in place of the pork. Serve over rice and crunchy noodles.

Nanny Beans

Nanny (Evelyn Lantz) was from Louisville, KY and passed this recipe to Grandma Loebach who passed to Gram and then to us. Nanny always said she'd live to be 100 and no older and that's what she did!

Dad's Basic Moist Pork Roast

Rating: 4.5 stars 43
This is the best and most basic way to ensure a juicy, perfectly-cooked pork roast every time. This recipe really requires a good thermometer -- either a $10 instant-read type or, even better, the type that pierces the meat and stays in place while connected to an outside-the-oven monitor. If you can swing that, then try your favorite marinade or rub on this recipe. Use your imagination on the rubs and marinades, but ensure you bring your roast directly from the fridge to the roasting pan -- Dad's recipe works best that way.

Tennessee Meatloaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 154
My Grandmother 'Nanaw' Rowan made the most delicious meatloaf in the state. When she passed away, she didn't leave me her recipe, but she left me the desire to recreate it. I think this is it, in flavor and texture. Don't let the number of ingredients discourage you. It's part of the magic in creating a masterpiece!

Pork Chops in Garlic Mushroom Sauce
Rating: 4.5 stars 563

This recipe is my twist on a fancy restaurant meal we got on Valentine's Day. The recipe has half the amount of garlic than was originally used. Hope everyone else enjoys it just as much as we do. Garnish with fresh parsley, chives, or thyme leaves.
