Porchetta Pork Shoulder

May 8th, 2013 · 20 Comments · Dinner, Fresh herbs, Pork, Roast

Ever since eating at Meat & Bread while living in Vancouver (in 2011), I have wanted to try making my own porchetta. It’s been a long time coming, but I have finally made it!! While picking up groceries at my local Sobey’s I noticed they started stocking pork shoulder in the meat section, seizing the […]

Here is some new news for all your BS’ers out there: I’ve started a new job in Communications in the world of potash! I work out at one of our mine sites, about forty minutes from my house, so the slow cooker has once again been my new favourite cooking appliance. It’s nice to come […]

The Cuban Grilled Cheese

April 21st, 2013 · 13 Comments · Cheese, Dinner, grilled cheese, left overs, Lunch, National Grilled Cheese Month, Pork, Sandwich

I believe this sandwich could be a turning point in my life, marking the start of an exciting new relationship with mustard and pickles. I have never been a huge fan of mustard, and hesitated to put a bunch on this sandwich, but I did it anyways, and am sure glad I did! The mix […]

Pork Chop & Acorn Squash with Squash Seed Vinaigrette

February 23rd, 2013 · 2 Comments · Dinner, Easy, Fresh herbs, Pork, Side, Vegetable

Once again Bon Appetit is appealing to my taste buds with this recipe. Pork chops are a regular staple in my diet, I love acorn squash, AND simple recipes! Although I’ve never been a huge fan of cilantro, it was perfect in this recipe, really complimenting the flavour of the squash seeds, I actually found […]

Rigatoni with Spicy Ground Turkey Ragu

February 17th, 2013 · 4 Comments · Dinner, Pork, Turkey

A dedicated Bon Appetit subscriber (and recipe maker), it wasn’t until last month (when I saw foodie friend Dan’s Goodside’s pork chop) that I noticed they encourage you to “Cook the Cover” and then feature some of the recipes. Given how delicious their February cover looked, I had to give it a go! I adapted […]

Herb Rubbed Pork & Salsa Verde Sandwich

February 1st, 2013 · 3 Comments · left overs, Pork, Sandwich

After making the Herb Rubbed Pork Loin the other week, in the spirit of Meat & Bread I felt obligated to make a sandwich with the leftovers! Unfortunately, I only made the pork loin to test out the spice blend and didn’t have any crackling for the sandwich! Regardless, this was a pretty tasty sandwich, […]

Purple Cabbage & Apple Slaw

January 22nd, 2013 · 1 Comment · Dinner, Pork, Salad, Sandwich, Side, Vegetable

To go along with the pulled pork Carlene was making for our Sunday family supper, I wanted a bright, tangy slaw to contrast the rich, smokey pulled pork flavour. With that idea in mind, I went with a cabbage/apple slaw, and started mixing in ingredients until I got what I was looking for!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

January 22nd, 2013 · 4 Comments · Easy, left overs, Pork

After a perfect afternoon of ice fishing (okay well not perfect-perfect, because we didn’t even get a single bite and almost hit a deer with the truck – literally missing it by centimeters, but it was perfect in the sense that we got to spend some time enjoying the great Canadian outdoors)…. okay back on […]

Herb Rubbed Pork Loin

January 19th, 2013 · 4 Comments · Dinner, Easy, Fresh herbs, Pork

I have been dreaming about making Porchetta like the one from Vancouver’s Meat & Bread (an amazingly good sandwich shop), but before I bought all the ingredients, I wanted to test this recipe first. After modifying it a bit for a small pork loin, I can happily say the seasoning is definitely similar to Meat […]

Apple Juice Brined Pork Chops

October 21st, 2012 · 1 Comment · Barbecue, Dinner, Grilled, Pork

While I’m an avid fan of pork chops, I can still fall victim to the common problem of overcooking them! Fortunately this is where brining comes into play. Having never actually brined something, I was looking forward to the results and decided to go with a fairly simple brine.
