PORK RECIPES BY A PROFESSIONAL CHEF
To discover how to cook pork, see the recipes below which will give you some interesting ideas. My favorite one is the prosciutto wrapped pork loin. Another one that I like a lot is the one I created for a tapas restaurant - the sweet and sour pork kabobs. Cooking pork is a lot of fun. I, actually, prefer fresh organic pork over chicken and beef anytime. Ground pork is also very versatile and easy to cook with. I always use a combination of ground pork and beef for meat sauce, lasagna and even meatballs. Have fun and enjoy.

Cover, reduce heat and simmer until chops are tender when pressed, about 20 minutes. Add the rest of the herb mix, the chopped parsley and red peppercorns, and simmer for 5 minutes more.
