Simple BBQ Ribs

Rating: 4.78 stars
Country-style ribs are cut from the loin, one of the leanest areas of pork. These ribs are seasoned, boiled until tender, then baked with your favorite barbeque sauce. That's it! Back to simplicity, back to the country life. Sigh.

Real Homemade Tamales

Rating: 4.37 stars
I had been looking for a Tamale recipe for years. One day I went to the international market and stood in the Mexican aisle till a woman with a full cart came by. I just asked her if she knew how to make Tamales. This is her recipe with a few additions from me. The pork can be substituted with either chicken or beef. This is great served with refried beans and a salad.

Tangy, a little sweet, very moist and very easy to prepare -- you're going to love these grilled chops. They turn out wonderfully tasty with an awesome array of flavors. You might want to throw an extra chop on the grill for leftovers, because you will have a craving for it the next day -- guaranteed.

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Rating: 4.47 stars
This sweet and spicy tenderloin recipe is super easy! Make it as spicy as you like by adding more or different types of chili peppers. This version is mild enough for my 4-year-old to enjoy. Two 1 pound tenderloins might only feed six because everyone will want seconds!

Pork Roast with the World's Best Rub

A pork loin is marinated with a nice rub flavored with thyme and three chiles. The dry rub penetrates all the way through and bakes into a sticky, sweet glaze.

Asian Pork Tenderloin

Rating: 4.61 stars
This is a simple and flavorful recipe. For best results, marinate the pork at least 8 hours (overnight is best) and flip it after 4 hours. It's great with rice and Asian veggies like bok choy! Enjoy!

Dad's Basic Moist Pork Roast

Rating: 4.56 stars
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.

This recipe for maple-brined pork roast is a delicious way for you to experience just how easy a simple brine really is. I love the way the meat gets infused with that subtly-sweet maple flavor.

What to Make with Pork Loin

Pork loin isn't as lean as tenderloin, so it's far better when cooked low and slow, like smoking, roasting, or slow-cooking. It freezes well, too, so pick up an extra pork loin when it's on sale and you'll have a great meal just waiting in your freezer.
