This pork casserole is a perfect mix of sweet and tart, and is quite an unusual use of rhubarb. I enjoy rhubarb but I'm not a dessert person, so I like to use it for more than pies and cobblers. —Jeanie Castor, Decatur, Illinois

"After making this I purchased more rhubarb and blanched and froze more so that I can make it all winter long. We love it that much."
