Pork scallopini with apples and sage from Melissa Clark is a quick, marvelously autumn-y dish. Apples are sauteed in butter until soft, then pounded slices of pork are seared in the same pan. Sage completes the dish. You tell us whether the best part is the taste or just one skillet to clean.
Whether you use an Instant Pot or your old stove top mode pressure cooker, you won’t regret making this Vietnamese caramel salmon. It comes together in minutes–minutes!–and is rich with Asian flavors.
These sheet pan beef skewers are a quick and easy meal from Melissa Clark. Beef sirloin is marinated in oil, garlic, and fragrant spices, skewered and quickly broiled, and served with a cilantro and mint yogurt sauce.
These roast pork chops with peaches are an easy, no-fuss, sheet pan meal of seasoned, roasted pork chops, peach wedges, and red onion, all topped with pomegranate molasses. A weeknight winner that belongs in your dinner rotation.
This lemon custard with strawberries is a go-to summer dessert for Leite’s Culinaria group member Maureen Potter, who loves the pronounced lemon flavor in this no-bake dessert that calls for just a few ingredients.
