Popular Pork Recipes

Whether you're biting into tangy pulled pork piled onto a soft white bun or tender medallions of tenderloin, you're going to get one thing from pork: flavor. Pork comes in many different cuts, and each performs differently in the pan. The shoulder braises beautifully, resulting in tender, moist shreds, while the lean tenderloin is best on the grill or in the oven. Pork chop recipes can be quickly sautéed, and are great paired with applesauce or a slaw. As for bacon, well, you can use it in just about anything: Try bacon-wrapped meatloaf, bacon deviled eggs or stick to a classic: a BLT made with garden-fresh tomatoes.

Prosciutto-Stuffed Chicken Bake

Talk about time-saving. The chicken's wild rice and broccoli side dish bakes in the same pan, meaning that all you need to do is toss up a simple green salad in order to make it a complete meal. When purchasing prosciutto from a deli, insist that the clerk place sheets of paper between the wafer-thin slices. Without paper, prosciutto slices are nearly impossible to separate.
