As the mother of teenagers, I strive to find meals they like but that require little work on my part. I get many requests for these Italian-style hamburgers...I make them monthly. - Amy LaPointe, North Fond du Lac, Wisconsin
My husband, Dave, and I have been in a dinner group with three other couples for a few years. We often share our recipes. The pork was served by one of the couples, and I decided to "pear" it with this fabulous salsa.
From Houston, Texas, Margaret Haugh Heilman shares her favorite recipe for tangy grilled pork tenderloin. Marinated in soy sauce, lime juice, red pepper and ginger, the meat takes on plenty of flavor-and is special enough for company.
"Featuring a twist of citrus, these tender chops have earned a spot on my family's list of favorite dinners," writes Margaret Pache of Mesa, Arizona. "To save time, I bake a double batch and freeze some. The chops reheat so nicely, your family will never guess they're eating leftovers."
Pork tenderloin gets gussied up with a sweet honey, Dijon mustard and sesame seed marinade in this easy-to-fix low-fat entree. "This is our family's favorite way to fix pork during grilling season," says Barbara Blake from her home in West Brattleboro, Vermont.
I love having family over for breakfast, and they all look forward to this down-home specialty. Cinnamon, nutmeg and apple slices help combine the flavors of the four different meats in this robust dish. I slice and cook the meat the day before to save time in the morning.
A sure way to perk up pork chops is with this herbed creole sauce. You can adjust the range of seasonings to suit your tastes. The red sauce with a sprinkle of green parsley makes a pretty presentation on the plate.
