We’re always looking for new ways to dish up the same old cuts of meat. Pork chops, for example, are usually seasoned with salt and pepper, seared and served. Easy peasy. And while they are good that way, sometimes we want to kick it up a notch and make them extra special. Our bourbon-braised pork chops recipe does just that. It elevates the traditional method and turns this into a meal your family will rave about, infusing a sweet and sassy flavor into the meat, which brightens up your entire meal. We recommend serving this dish with our Neapolitan green beans and a baked potato. Read more of this post

Fou Maque Choux [RECIPE]

Moroccan Pork Loin with Blackberry Glaze and Fou Maque Choux

Fou Maque Choux is our spin on a Cajun classic. Blending some of our favorite flavors, it is a quick and filling side that pairs nicely with dishes like our Moroccan Pork Loin with Blackberry Glaze. (Photo by Jathan Fink, Jadeworks Entertainment)

Having traveled about the United States as much as we have, we tend to pick up culinary traditions all around the country. Maque Choux is a traditional side dish served throughout Louisiana. We first learned about it when we took a class at the New Orleans School of Cooking a few years back, although that recipe called for tomatoes. I’ve cut them out here, however, which is why I’m calling this version Fou Maque Choux (fou is Cajun for “crazy”). In its place I’ve  added a touch of Tex-Mex flavor by adding the black beans and Mexican oregano. The ingredients blend together beautifully and make for one yummy new riff on a Cajun classic. Enjoy!
