Pork always pairs wonderfully with sweet flavors. Just like Pork Chops n'Applesauce, the sweet taste of pear and caramelized onions works perfectly with juicy pork. This dish is sweet, but not overpowering. When served alongside some brussels sprouts with a touch of bacon & stone ground mustard, you have yourself an easy to prepare gourmet meal.
What really made this meal stand out was the addition of a Balsamic Sweet Onion Jam I received for Christmas from my future mother in law. She picked it up at a local farm. The complexity of the sweet and savory flavors gives this dish an amazing kick. Surowiec Farm in Sanbornton, NH is where the Jam came from but Williams-Sonoma carries their own if you cant find it locally.
These stuffed peppers make the perfect Paleo meal. The cauliflower 'rice' is a wonderful alternative to rice or other grains. The spinach is sautéd in coconut oil to add extra healthy fat and flavor. I like to use any herbs I have available or spice it up with some cumin, paprika, or garam masala. Sometimes I substitute the beef for lamb, buffalo or sausage. The variations are endless.
A quiche is the best way to use up anything lying around in the fridge you just don't know what to do with. Whenever I have a bunch of leftover vegetables I just sauté them all together, pour in some eggs & cheese and create a wonderful meal. If I happen to have sweet potato I will shred some up to make a nice sweet potato crust, or make a crust free frittata. The combinations are endless, but the sweet and salty mixture in this quiche is just amazing.
