Singapore Noodles

Regardless, they're a stir-fry classic, and are easy to make at home. Here's what you need to know, from how to choose the right rice noodles to how to make the stir-fry work on a home burner. More

Chorizo-Spiced Pulled Pork With Mexican Street Corn Slaw

With warm weather comes an increase in barbecue consumption, though if I'm being honest, I'm even more of a fan of Mexican chorizo than I am of pulled pork. But why choose between the two? Instead, bring them together by braising pork shoulder with chorizo spices, then shredding it like pulled pork. The crowning glory: a coleslaw made with corn, mayo, and cotija cheese, just like elote, the Mexican street corn. More

Stir-Fried Cucumbers With Spicy Ground Pork

Cucumbers might make you think of salads and pickles, but they're excellent as the main ingredient in stir fries as well. Exposed to the wok's intense heat, they become silky smooth with a juicy, meaty bite. In this easy recipe, they're paired with spicy ground pork. More

Pork Chops With White Wine and Leek Pan Sauce

Creating a pan sauce that has body and richness doesn't just happen by mistake: You have to use certain techniques to get there. In this easy dinner, pork chops are served with a light, bright pan sauce made from leeks, white wine, chicken stock, and lemon zest. The leeks, though, add more than just flavor: they also fortify the sauce with bulk and texture, adding body and substance where there might not otherwise be any. More

Sheng Jian Bao (Pan-fried Pork Soup Dumplings)

Xiao long bao, Shanghai-style soup dumplings, have become legendary for good reason, but so far their doughier pan-fried cousins called sheng jian bao remain much less well-known here in the States. If you love XLB, you need to try sheng jian bao. Here's how to make them, from the flavorful pork filling to the dough wrapper and combo pan-frying and steaming method. More

Chinese Sticky Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaf (Lo Mai Gai)

Lo mai gai, the dim sum classic of steamed lotus leaves stuffed with sticky rice and all sorts of delicious goodies, are irresistible from the moment you unwrap one fresh from the steamer and a chorus of aromas hits your nose. The biggest task is gathering all the ingredients, like the lotus leaves and glutinous rice, as well as Chinese sausage, cured pork belly, and salted egg yolks. Once you've got them rounded up, though, it's a relatively easy and extremely delicious at-home dish. More

Chinese Lion's Head Pork Meatballs With Vermicelli and Cabbage

Shanghai-style Lion's Head meatballs have a name that sounds intimidating, but they couldn't be easier to make.

Lechon Kawali (Filipino Crispy Fried Pork Belly)

Ragú Napoletano (Neapolitan-Style Italian Meat Sauce with Pork, Beef, and Sausage)

If you were to pick a president and el tigre numero uno of the ragù world, it'd be ragù Napoletano, a meaty stew with big chunks of beef, pork, and sausages simmered until fall-apart tender in a rich tomato sauce flavored with wine, onions, garlic, basil, and plenty of good Southern Italian olive oil. It's the precursor to Italian-American Sunday gravy: just add some meatballs, serve it with spaghetti, and you're there. It's also the perfect dish for a lazy Sunday with family or friends at home.

Lasagna Napoletana (Lasagna With Sausage, Smoked Cheese, and Meatballs)

We all know about lasagna Bolognese, the Northern Italian casserole made with fresh pasta layered with cheese sauce and a slow-cooked meat sauce enriched with cream. But what if I told you that there was another lasagna out there every bit as decadent, involved, rib-sticking, and delicious? I introduce to you Lasagna Napoletana, a lasagna that comes stuffed with an insanely meaty and savory red sauce, small tender-crisp meatballs, slices of sausage, and not one, not two, not even three, but four types of cheese. Are you ready to have your gut busted and your mind blown? Let's go. More
