Pork Piperade Recipe

I like to "spice up" my meat dishes with peppers, and this Basque Piperade—adapted from a Spanish recipe—is a family favorite. —Hyacinth Rizzo, Buffalo, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

"O.M.G this is SO good! I make this a lot but I use 4 green bell peppers because the green is cheaper than the red bell peppers. I also use 2 cans of stewed tomatoes instead of the tomatoes called for in this receipe. I have made this more than any other T.O.H receipe that I've collected over the years. I'm so glad I first tried this over more than 15 years ago. I can't believe that there isn't more reviews for this AWSOME dish! It's always been my "Go to receipe" when ever I want to make something that's really good. I will always make this for my family as well as for It's in my TOP 5 ALL TIME FAVORITES!! Please try this. I'm wanting to see how many of you T.O.H lovers will Love this! I always call this my "pork and Peppers" I think people see the Piperade word/part of this receipe and say "What's that?" It's just a fancy word for "pork and Peppers" You really got to TRY THIS ONE!!!"
