In this land of beef-eaters, pork stews don't get enough love. This one is an adaptation of a Greek pork and wine stew that I read in Vefa's Kitchen. Chunks of pork shoulder are slow-simmered in wine until meltingly tender and packed with flavor. More

Lamb Loin Chops with Greek Salad and Yogurt-Lemon Sauce

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

To stretch this salad into a full meal, I immediately thought of lamb. Though I didn't have time to roast a whole leg of lamb (shame), I did have the eight minutes necessary to cook up these cute little lamb loin chops (which look like miniature t-bone steaks). The yogurt-lemon dressing with feta plays nicely with the lamb, while also adding some creamy and tart notes to the salad. More

This dip gets its pink hue from carp roe, though cod can also be used. The briny little balls are mixed with breadcrumbs, lemon juice, and olive oil. The result is a creamy, salty spread that's incredibly addictive. More

I like tzatziki alone or spread on pita, alongside fish or with an assortment of vegetables. Cucumber makes it light and refreshing, while garlic adds bite and olive oil imparts just a hint of fruity richness. More

Eat this Greek salad in the summer and you'll see that ripe tomatoes and cucumbers don't need anything more than a light dressing of olive oil and red wine vinegar to taste their best. More
