I recently purchases half a hog from a butcher in my town for a good price and now I need some recipes to use it! I am stumped after pulled pork sandwiches, blts, and fried pork chops. I need some creative ideas for some yummy recipes to try, and side dishes to go with it would be awesome!

I have made stew using pork.  It was an oppsie but still came out really good!  use it in chili instead of traditional beef.  Hispanics generally brine it and then fry it and it is super crispy on the outside and tender and juicy

Paprika Pork Roast

Combine garlic salt, ginger, pepper and paprika; rub over the entire roast.  Place roast with fat side side up on a greased rack in a roasting pan.  Top with onion.  Pour water into pan.  Bake uncovered at 325° for 2 - 2 1/2 hours until a meat thermometer reads 160° - 170°.  Let stand for 10 - 15 minutes before slicing.

You can also put this in the crock pot but reduce water to 1/4 cup.  Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours.

APPLE & SAGE PORK CHOPS

1 Tbsp. flour

1 1/2 tsp. rubbed sage

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. dried minced garlic

1 tsp. dried thyme leaves

1/2 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. ground allspice

4 boneless pork chops

2 Tbsp. olive/canola/vegetable oil

1 medium onion, thinly sliced

2 apples, thinly sliced

1/2 c. apple juice (we used cider since we didn't have juice)

1 Tbsp. brown sugar

Mix flour, spices and salt in a small bowl.  Sprinkle both sides of chops with the seasoned flour.

Cook pork chops in hot oil in large skillet on medium high heat until browned on both sides.  Remove from skillet.  Add onion; cook and stir 3 minutes or until tender.  Add apples; cook and stir for 2 minutes.

Stir in juice, sugar, and remaining seasoned flour until well mixed.  Return pork chops to skillet.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 5 minutes or until desired doneness.

 

NOTE:  I've also left off the apples, allspice, and apple juice for some tasty sage & onion pork chops!
