Herb Marinated Pork Chops with Tart Apple Chutney

I think these pork chops are my favorite pork chops I have eaten in quite a while. I used thick cut boneless chops which were marinated in a lemon, garlic and herb brine overnight and then smoked. The apple chutney is sweet, sour, tangy with a strong mustard component and it was a perfect complimentContinue reading “Herb Marinated Pork Chops with Tart Apple Chutney”

Korean mung bean pancakes (or bindaetteok), are savory pan fried cakes made from ground dried mung beans and a variety of tasty fillings. My favorite is pork/kimchi.

Grilled Thai Pork Tenderloin with Soba Noodle Salad

This grilled Thai pork tenderloin with soba noodle salad is one of my favorite meals we have had recently.

Onigirazu is a variation on Japanese Onigiri (rice balls), that is more of a rice/seaweed sandwich with different fillings. These are less traditional and can be filled with lot of different things.

Bangers and Mash with Onion Gravy

What are you all having for Valentine’s day dinner? We had this yummy bangers and mash with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and dark beer onion gravy. Yum!
