A sweet-tart honey-lemon sauce, with a hint of basil, accents this fantastic pork entree that's perfect for a special dinner. "I serve it with rice on the side," notes John Cowan from Somerville, Massachusetts.
I prefer grilling in the summer because you don't need to turn on the stove and heat up the house. If you want to get fancy, serve it in a chilled martini glass for a beautiful presentation. The rice and/or shrimp can be cooked a day ahead and refrigerated until serving.&$151;Lindsay Matuszak, Reno, Nevada
Bette Roman of Brookfield, Illinois won first place in a local recipe contest with this tasty roast. “It's great for just the two of us or for company,” shares Bette. “I usually serve it with baked potatoes and corn-on-the-cob.”
A well-seasoned tomato salsa dresses up these tender, flaky fillets. I'm an empty-nester now, but my sons love this recipe. My husband, Ron, never complains when I make it either! —Carolyn Schmeling, Brookfield, Wisconsin
“My husband loves pork chops. They're a good source of lean protein and it's easy to change the flavor by using different spices. I created this marinade based on a few I saw in Healthy Cooking.” Jackie Termont - Richmond, Virginia
“My friends have asked me to bottle my barbeque sauce, rub and marinades. My favorite saying is, 'You cook it, and they will come.'” And they sure will with these tender ribs on the menu! Thanks to Allan Stackhouse Jr of Jennings, Louisiana for the recipe.
I received this recipe when we moved to Oklahoma. A going-away party was held for us, and the guests were asked to bring their favorite recipe as a remembrance. The special friend who brought this one has since died, and every time I make it, a flood of wonderful memories fills my heart.
