Pork chops are a great weeknight meal, but even if they’re cooked to the proper internal temperature, they can be rather bland, especially if they’re prepared too simply. Another problem with pork chops is that they’re typically lean cuts of meat with very little fat so it’s easy to overcook them. This recipe for Stuffing Topped Pork Chops is case study in how to handle these two challenges and it’s also one of the best uses ever for leftover stuffing. (more…)

Apricot Orange Marinade is my go-to marinade for chicken and pork. This recipe makes enough for about 2 pounds of meat and you can even reserve a little bit of the marinade to use as a sauce for extra flavor. However, it’s very important to set aside any sauce you plan to serve with the cooked meat BEFORE you place the raw meat in the marinade, otherwise you risk contracting a foodborne illness, as raw meat can contain harmful bacteria that will contaminate the marinade. No worries consuming the meat after it’s properly cooked though, as any germs will be killed off. Just be sure to discard the marinade that the raw meat sat in.
