200. Roast Pork Shoulder Cubano: Puerco Asado p.477

200. Roast Pork Shoulder Cubano: Puerco Asado p.477

The recipe
Very few things in life are as good, or as simple as roast pork. The bachelor party tradition among my group of friends is to spit-roast a pig over charcoal. We recently went in on a roaster and put it through it’s paces before my wedding. Spending the afternoon hanging out and watching the [...]

156. Dry-Cooked String Beans p.523

156. Dry-Cooked String Beans p.523

I couldn’t find a recipe for this one online.
I was in a frying mood the night I made these beans and the onion rings. The combination of a fried appetizer, and a fried main course was just a little too much. This stir fry was more than greasy enough all by itself.
In this dish trimmed [...]

145. Cider Braised Pork Shoulder with Caramelized Onions p.476

145. Cider Braised Pork Shoulder with Caramelized Onions p.476

The recipe
I love to braise. It’s almost worth suffering through the interminable and bitter winter of Montreal to do it. Of course you could braise all year round if you really wanted to, but somehow simmering meat for hours in the middle of July just doesn’t sound like a good idea. Braised meats are delicious, [...]

129. Posole: Pork and Hominy Stew p.486

129. Posole: Pork and Hominy Stew p.486

Epicurious doesn’t have a recipe for this one, but one of the posole recipes I found on there looks great, and might address some of my concerns with this dish.
I was really excited to make this. My dining companion came home raving about the posole at Le Jolifou, a great Montreal restaurant which specializes in [...]

127. Barbecued Chile-Marinated Spareribs p.490

127. Barbecued Chile-Marinated Spareribs p.490

There’s no recipe for this one.
These ribs are dead simple, but they take some forethought. The ribs are simmered in water for an hour, then marinated in sauce of New Mexico chiles, ketchup, garlic, cider vinegar, brown sugar, salt, tequila, vegetable oil, ground cumin, and ground allspice for the next eight hours. Half of the [...]

103. Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Mojo Sauce p.476

103. Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Mojo Sauce p.476

The recipe
I chose this recipe because it was over 30 degrees, humid, and didn’t look like it was going to cool down overnight. We had dinner late because we couldn’t stand the thought of eating until the relative cool of the evening. This tenderloin fit the bill for a light dish that wouldn’t heat up [...]

99. Chinese-Hawaiian “Barbecued” Ribs p.491

99. Chinese-Hawaiian "Barbecued" Ribs p.491

The recipe
I wasn’t sure I was going to like these ribs, but I was pleasantly surprised. These are racks of ribs marinated in soy, sugar, ketchup, sherry, salt, garlic and ginger. They’re then baked at 325 for 1 3/4 hours, basting with the marinade every 20 minutes. Everything about the title is confusing, I get [...]

70. Chow Fun with Chinese Barbecued Pork and Snow Peas p.249

70. Chow Fun with Chinese Barbecued Pork and Snow Peas p.249

The recipe.
This is the stir fry I mentioned a while back. It called for leftover Char Siu as an ingredient. The stir fry alone is competent, but not exceptional. The char siu is what makes the dish. The stir fry is very restrained in it’s selection of vegetables, just snow peats, scallions, and bean sprouts. [...]

62. Char Siu p.478

The recipe
This recipe was a bit of effort, but boy was it worth it. The ingredients are simple and readily available, and they come together in the most delightful way with the judicious application of heat. The recipe calls for a 1 pound boneless pork butt or shoulder. I bought a whole picnic ham (from [...]

53. Old Fashioned Meat Loaf p.448

53. Old Fashioned Meat Loaf p.448

The recipe
Take cover! NORAD has detected an extraterrestrial turd loaf coming in fast over the arctic. It wants our Humpback whales to save the future.
This was not the most visually appealing dish I’ve ever made, but it did taste good. I think it’s um, distinctive, shape helped with the flavour too. I’ve made meatloaf [...]
