This is an easy and flavorful dish that my family really enjoys. When I fix it for company, I usually prepare the meat the day before so I can concentrate on side dishes and relaxing with my friends. —Yvette Massey, La Luz, New Mexico
This spicy slow-cooked stew from Rebecca Overy of Evanston, Wyoming combines tender chunks of pork with colorful tomatoes and green peppers. "I garnish bowls of it with chopped hard-cooked eggs and green onions," she adds.
If you're looking for a change from typical barbecue ribs, you'll enjoy this recipe my mom always prepared on birthdays and special occasions. The tender ribs have a slight sweet-and-sour taste that my family loves. I usually serve them with garlic mashed potatoes and a salad or coleslaw.

Since my husband works full-time and attends school, I do a great deal around the house, including getting our three children where they need to go. I'm always looking for no-fuss recipes, so I was thrilled to find this one. The moist teriyaki seasoned pork roast has become a family favorite.
"This heartwarming one-dish meal is adapted from a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe," says Donna Wilkinson of Clarksburg, Maryland. "I start the pot roast cooking before I leave for church, add vegetables when I get home, and then just sit back and relax until it's done."
In Dayton, New Jersey, Tara Bonesteel finds it easy to please friends and family with these fast-to-fix chops. "Simmered in a tangy sauce all day, they're so moist and delicious by dinnertime they practically melt in your mouth," she notes.
"My husband and two kids rave over these moist chops," reports Robin Czachor of Appleton, Wisconsin. "Use the mild sweet-and-sour sauce to make a gravy that can be served over mashed potatoes or rice," she suggests. "Then add a salad and you have a very satisfying meal that didn't keep you in the kitchen for hours."
