Cathal Armstrong's Roast Pork Belly with Cabbage and Sous-Vide Apples.
At Restaurant Eve in Alexandria, VA, one of Chef Cathal Armstrong's favorite dishes is roast pork belly with braised cabbage and sous vide apples. It's a multi-stage recipe that involves brining the pork belly over several days, and there are several moving parts that first-timers may want to build up to. But the result is well worth it.For those who haven't yet gotten into the sous-vide game, the recipe for apples poached in simple syrup is a fantastic replacement.

In the past few years, no other ethnic food has risen in popularity as dramatically as the Vietnamese sandwich. Vietnamese delis have popped up all over the country, and at the heart of the hype is the popular bánh mì sandwich: a mouthwatering, messy layering of juicy pork, cucumber, and sweet and tangy do chua, a slaw made with pickled carrots and daikon radishes. And the drooling doesn’t have to stop at your favorite Vietnamese deli. Now you can bring the sandwich craze to your kitchen with our yummy bánh mì recipe.

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

Cherry Tomatoes
Originally, the recipe was conceived to use up some slow-cooker pork shoulder leftovers, but its simplicity and bright colors had me thinking about boring old pasta in a new way. Come to think of it, you could use leftover roast chicken too, but the tomatoes and radicchio go nicely with the tender pork. Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Pasta Dishes.

Roast Pork
You can’t have crackling without the pig skin, but sadly it has become quite difficult to buy a piece of pork with the rind still intact to make delicious crackling. It needs to be ordered ahead from the butcher, so do your bit and insist on getting it so that this essential part of the enjoyment of roast pork does not die out!

Roast Pork Loin with Rosemary and Porcini Mushrooms
We had pig, a very, very large pig, and her name was Lucretia. She was friendly and always seemed to have a dozen squeaky little piglets running underfoot. My father and I would take the goats out into the woods for the day and Lucretia would sometimes join us. My father carried a long stick, which he used to nudge and guide her, so I suppose we used to take our pig for walks. So many little piglets meant lots of pork meals. Although most of the piglets were sold off to friends and neighbors, at least one was kept for us, soon to become pork chops, lardon (pancetta), and salted hams and roasts.— Ethel Brennan

Roasted Pork Tenderloin
This is one of those meals where you’ll get a little giddy the next morning when you remember that you have leftovers to eat for lunch. It’s that yummy. I love root vegetables but don’t often feel like bothering with the peeling, chopping, and roasting that’s required. After I knocked over an entire pile of celery root at Whole Foods the other day, I felt obligated to take some of the battered veggies home for transformation. I added parsnips and beets, and the root vegetables became the star of a delicious warm salad, which I served with a roasted pork tenderloin. It was a simple but elegant meal, easy enough to prepare on a work day but lovely enough for a special occasion (and Mother’s Day is coming!) The veggies were tossed with olive oil and fresh herbs before roasting and became both crispy and tender and nutty and sweet. You could serve them just like this, but I put them over a bed of spinach dressed with a citrus and honey vinaigrette.  Click here for the Roasted Root Vegetable Salad recipe.
