Ingredients
  • 2 pork chops, about 1
  • 2 teaspoons cooking oil, if needed
  • 1 tablespoon whole coriander seeds
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • Trim off excess fat from chops; cut fat into several small pieces and put into skillet over medium heat for 3 - 4 minutes to grease skillet. If there is no excess fat, heat 2 teaspoons cooking oil in skillet.
  • While skillet heats, salt and pepper chops lightly. Coarsely crush coriander seeds with mortar and pestle, or by putting in a plastic bag and tapping with a heavy object. Press crushed coriander firmly into one side of each chop.

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds red potatoes
  • 5 slices thick cut bacon (no flavor additives)
  • 5 sprigs green onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 tablespoons sour cream
Directions
Begin by dicing potatoes, skin on or off, your choice.

Finely chop the green onion and bacon.

Toss the potatoes with olive oil, salt, pepper, onions and bacon.

Place a Dutch oven over medium-high heat (grill, directly over the charcoals; gas and stove-top, set gauges accordingly). When the Dutch oven is hot, place a few pieces of the bacon at the bottom of the pot so that the fat begins to coat the bottom of the pot. Once a thin layer of grease is on the bottom, pour the potato mixture into the pot, cover and wait. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking and cause even cooking.

When the potatoes are soft, remove Dutch oven from heat and add cheese. Stir until all of the cheese has melted. Serve with a dollop of sour cream.

Serving Description: 4 generous servings when served as a main dish or 6 to 8 servings when served as a side dish.
Servings:
Change Servings
Ingredients
  • 5 cups chicken stock (or any other meat stock)
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 cups Italian rice such as arborio (a generic brand of risotto rice can be used)
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan or similar hard cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
Directions
  • In a medium saucepan, heat 5 cups of chicken stock (or any other type of meat stock, depending on the flavor desired). After the stock is heated, reduce the heat to very low.
  • In a separate large saucepan or other cooking pan, melt 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add ½ cup of finely diced onion to the pan and slowly sweat the onion, stirring occasionally. Do not allow the heat to become too high and do not allow the onion to brown.
  • Add 1½ cups of Italian rice to the pan (do not use lower starch, long-grain varieties). Stir the rice immediately (a wooden spoon works well) over medium heat and continue stirring, preventing the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes. Monitor the heat level so that the rice and onions do not cook too quickly or take on any color. The rice should become slightly translucent.
  • Pour in ¾ cup of white wine and stir constantly over medium heat until the liquid has been absorbed. Add 1 cup or less of the heated chicken stock (or other meat stock) to the pan, stirring constantly, over medium heat. It is helpful to use a ladle to transfer the stock when needed. Continue adding the chicken stock in small quantities (a ladle-full or two), but only after the rice has absorbed nearly all of the liquid.
  • After 20 to 25 minutes of stirring and adding liquid, taste the rice for doneness. It should be creamy, but the center of the grains should be al dente. If more cooking time is required, continue stirring and adding stock, or if the stock has been depleted, use warm water. If the rice is done before the stock is depleted, the remaining stock does not have to be used.
  • Reduce the heat to low and stir in 2 tablespoons of butter, season with salt and pepper, and add freshly grated Parmesan or similar hard cheese. Stir the risotto to blend the ingredients and remove the pan from the heat. Allow the risotto to rest for 2 to 3 minutes prior to serving.
