The secret to perfectly baked pork chops is to throw away the concept of traditional baking! Pork chops are lean, which means they dry out quickly. To make sure your baked chops stay tender, juicy, and have a ton of flavor you need to cook them very quickly, on high heat to sear the outside, without over cooking the center.

I realize the subject of grilling steaks is a big topic. With the numerous cuts of beef available plus different desired levels of cooking, instructions could span several pages. But for our purposes, I will focus on grilling two popular cuts: filet mignon and New York, with a medium-rare result as our goal. The New York is also known as “strip steak” and comes from the short loin of the cow.
I love stuffed chicken breast for its simplicity and step up from the ordinary chicken meal. But lovingly cradle-wrapping the stuffed chicken in bacon adds another level of excitement. Who doesn’t love bacon? I’m going to show you how to make a stuffing out of cheese and spinach, compose the layers into a roll with the bacon, poach it and finish it off on the stove.
Filet mignon, or “dainty fillet” is among the most coveted cuts from the cow due its lovely, tender texture and subtle flavor. Despite the title of our dish, filet mignon should not be fully cooked in the oven. I first sear the steak on the stove top, then transfer to the oven to finish. This method is my favorite, due to the crispy outside crust and perfectly cooked center, beautifully rare.
I’ve never been to Tampa, and so I didn’t know much about the regional specialties. Knowing the city is on the Gulf Coast, I figured seafood was a winner, and with just a bit of research I found the Grouper Sandwich - which is my inspiration for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Burger. Yes, not a traditional burger, but come on and cut me some slack, I gotta come up with 32 of these! Like me y
As I’m not going to actually cook a dolphin, the Cuban sandwich seemed like a great idea for my Miami inspired NFL burger. The Cuban is a beautiful art-like sandwich, made with tender, favorful cuts of pork....so, instead of a beef patty, I decided to grill off a ground pork burger, seasoned with some BBQ rub.
