I like to "spice up" my meat dishes with peppers, and this Basque Piperade—adapted from a Spanish recipe—is a family favorite. The bright red and green peppers look especially good with meats like pork, chicken or seafood...but I use the sauce to season beef when I cook that, too.
This zesty pizza is a quick way to bring some spice to the dinner table. The biscuit mix crust gets its zip from chopped jalapenos while taco seasoning perks up the tomato sauce. Sweet peppers , sausage, lettuce and tomato complete the Mexican main dish.
Pears and brandy team up to turn ordinary pork chops into a restaurant-quality dish that’s good enough for guests. Serve with an upscale side, such as brussels sprouts or asparagus, and a glass of wine for a fantastic meal. —Gina Quartermaine, Alexandria, Virginia
"Talk about versatile recipes! This is a long-time family favorite just as it is, but occasionally, I jazz up the recipe with jalapeno peppers and fresh ginger. I’ve also made it with peach preserves and dried cherries for a delicious change of pace," notes Julie Wesson of Wilton, Wisconsin.
Sliced peaches and red pepper strips add pretty color to these quick-to-fix pork slices, while a hint of Dijon mustard and gingerroot perks up the slightly sweet sauce. Terri Glauser of Appleton, Wisconsin shares the recipe.
For a light and refreshing salad that is fancy enough to serve to guests, try this recipe. The pork roast is so tender and delicious and is paired well with the raspberry preserves. —Taste of Home Cooking School
