Cuban Quesadillas

Writing about the Cuban sandwich at Chez Henri got me thinking about the best Cuban I’ve ever had. Chez Henri’s version came close, but it was the one I had at General Greene in Brooklyn years ago that still sticks out in my mind. Their version isn’t exactly traditional, with prosciutto replacing the ham and [read more →]

What do you do when you have a pork tenderloin sitting in the refrigerator, come up with the grand idea to make homemade moo-shu pork, but don’t want to let down your vegetarian moo-shu-loving boyfriend?

Sous Vide St. Louis Ribs

My love for my Sous Vide Supreme has been well documented. One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about the sous vide method of cooking is its ability to make cooking for a crowd completely foolproof.

Pork Stir-Fry with Sugar Snap Peas

I had some leftover cooked pork tenderloin in the freezer from when I made the five spice pork a couple of months ago and thought it would make a wonderful stir-fry. I found a recipe for stir-fried pork tenderloin with sugar snap peas in one of my Food Network cookbooks, so I adapted it to [read more →]

Once again, I may have gotten overly ambitious when planning my dinners for this week. I was up late last night cooking, but it was totally worth it (and really, it was my fault for starting too late). I had a couple of frozen pork tenderloins in the freezer and I remembered a delicious recipe [read more →]
