Let's hear it for pork chops! You may know them as that rubbery cut of meat that dries out instantly, has no fat or flavor and is generally unpopular. Welcome to Food Republic. This big meaty recipe roundup features jerk spice, chutneys, brines and most importantly, bones. A thick-cut bone-in pork chop isn't going to dry out like some of its lesser chop brethren, especially if you brine it. You're brining your amazing bone-in pork chop, right?

Beef tenderloin is a great dish to fall back on when you're looking to feed a crowd and don't have much time. For this recipe, we threw thyme and rosemary in the grinder with dried porcini mushroom to make a dry rub that creates a crispy crust when the meat was cooked. Although a sauce is not necessary, use a porcini and red wine reduction to tie it all together.

Compound butter is very simply softened butter blended with something else, then re-firmed up and used liberally. Preferably on something grilled. Tonight, mix up a batch for steak, pork, veggies, oysters and (perhaps most famously) snails and see how much flavor you can pack into a simple, humble ingredient. Here are 8 great ways to do it.  

D.I.Y. Condiments Are Where It's At! 8 Ideas For Skipping The Squeeze Bottle.

Put down that bottle of ketchup. Walk away.
Aug 4, 2014 2:00 pm

Tonight, we're skipping whatever's in the bottle or jar. Homemade condiments are where it's at. Not ketchup, don't mess with bottled ketchup, it's perfect. But as far as the olive relish in the muffuletta quesadilla, chipotle sauce on that pork tenderloin or steak sauce you're planning to dip that grilled bacon in goes, DIY. Love that peanut stuff that comes with Thai chicken satay. You're in luck.
