Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Guinness and Sauteed Escarole
Believe it or not, I only recently started eating pork (I'm pretty sure that admitting to this may be sacreligious among foodies) due to my childhood aversion to the pig pen at a local farm in Stamford, Conn. This is a great recipe for people who, like myself, prefer pork with savory ingredients rather than sweet. Over a bed a garlicky escarole, with the earthiness of the Guinness and mushrooms, boneless pork chops are in their element. Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Pork Chops

Balsamic Pork Chop with Pears and Radicchio
For me, pork chops aren't so much about cooking technique as they are about what you serve them with. Here is a roast pork chop recipe for the seasonally-inclined cook. The lightly-cooked pears and balsamic reduction add a nice sweet touch that is balanced by the slight bitterness of the radicchio. Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Pork Chops

Braised Pork Chops with Apples and Crainberries
This is a one of my favorite winter dishes and the sweet-tart-savory combination of flavors have a lot of complexity without it being a complicated dish. You can finish this in a Crock Pot as well -- after browning just put the rest of the ingredients in the slow cooker (keep the onions raw) for 6 hours on low.

Pork Chops
Pork chops are extremely easy to make and have tender, juicy meat. You can cook them in a variety of ways, searing them on the stove, finishing them in the oven, or cooking them with vegetables and sides. This recipe is great served over kale and white beans (as pictured), but can also be used with salsas or a simple salad. Luckily the spices give it enough flavor so that it doesn't need a lot else, especially when you have good-quality meat.Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Pork Chops

This is a sensational dinner in which the sauce for the pork chop cozies up to the grits and adds a new dimension. It’s not hard to make unless you drink too much of the Calvados while cooking.  Quality matters enormously with pork and I find myself enjoying the swiney flavor of small-farm-raised heirloom pork, pricey though it is. I like my pork chops about an inch thick, but this means you will have to sear them in a pan and finish them in the oven to have them cook to medium or more.

Broiled Pork Chops
Here's a quick and easy weeknight meal for two that takes less than 30 minutes to put together. These pork chops are a tad on the spicy side (OK, they're actually really spicy), but feel free to use fewer chiles in the salsa or substitute something a bit less potent, such as serranos or jalapeños. See all recipes for salsa. Click here to see Dinner Recipes in 30 Minutes or Less.

Pork chop with red pepper flake flecked potatoes.
A seared, bone-in pork chop with potatoes on a cold night usually hits the spot, especially when the potatoes are liberally seasoned with red chile pepper flakes (serving them with scrambled eggs is my go-to breakfast dish). A little caramelization on the chop, the potatoes get a little sweet and zippy — it's quick, inexpensive, revitalizing and tasty. All good. — Arthur Bovino Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Pork Chops

Some people say that the holidays are the best time of the year. That may be, but I love the autumn, because there are so many tasty things to eat! This recipe came in handy for me the other night. It was filling and warming after one of those long, chilly autumn Fridays where all you want to do is go home and curl up. The dark beer infuses the pork with its bitter-sweetness, and the apple and pear combat the bitter with a sugary sweetness that pairs so well with the fatty flavor of the chops. Truly satisfying. I made theis dish with some mashed sweet potatoes and roasted brussels sprouts. Delish!
