You had me worried there for a sec. elf. The only thing I knew of that was exotic in fruit cocktail was that single maraschino cherry we always use to fight over as kids. Whew! All is well now.

Your pork loin and glaze recipe look quite enticing. Pork and fruit seem to be amiable companions at all times.

Rigatoni with Italian Sausage and Tomato

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, sliced
3-4 cloves garlic, sliced
8 oz. Italian sausage
14-oz. can crushed or diced tomatoes
½ cup white wine
½-1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper
12 oz. rigatoni
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Heat oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and garlic, sauté until tender. Add the sausage to pan and cook, turning frequently, for 2-3 minutes. Add the tomato, wine, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper, to taste, and stir. Bring to boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes. While the sauce is cooking, cook the rigatoni in a large pan of rapidly boiling salted water until al dente. Drain and return to pan. Add the sauce to hot pasta. Toss well to combine. Serve sprinkled with the combined fresh parsley and grated Parmesan.

Mexican Stuffed Shells

12 jumbo pasta shells
1-lb. ground beef
1 ½ cups picante sauce (mild or medium, to taste)
1-8 oz. can tomato sauce
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1-4 oz. can chopped green chilies
1 ½ cups shredded Monterey jack cheese (6 oz.), divided

Cook pasta shells according to package directions. Drain well. Cook ground beef in a skillet, stirring occasionally to break up meat, until brown. Drain off fat. In medium bowl, combine picante sauce, tomato sauce, broth, cumin, chili powder, mix well. Add ½ cup of the sauce mixture, chilies, and ½ cup of the cheese to beef. Mix well. Stuff shells with beef mixture. Spread half of the remaining sauce mixture in a 10-inch round baking dish. Place stuffed shells in baking dish. Pour remaining sauce mixture over stuffed shells. Bake, covered in a preheated 350° oven for 30 minutes, or until heated through. Top with remaining 1 cup of cheese. Return to oven and bake, uncovered, 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

The number of beef and pork recipes I could come up with astounds me!

Do you want the "cheap cuts" or the more pricey ones?

Here's whats on for supper tomorrow in the "Lifter" household, while I go out on a "roadtrip" for work...

Two pork tenderloins, each approximately 1.5 lbs...(my cost, at "my" butcher, about $10 Cdn!)...

Got them thawed and malleable, will stab them several placesinserting a split garlic clove or a "lardoon" (as GoodWeed calls them) of pork fat...(the meat packer charges about a buck for this, the grovery store let me out with about a pound, no charge)...maybe a few wedges of apple or pineapple, sticking it all together in place with balsa toothpicks...

In a non stick fry pan, with a bit of olive oil, sear this meat all over briefly...

Take it from there, and, for a bout 20 minutes a pound, place it in the oven at about 350 degrees, until internal temp is up to or about 145...

Rest and serve...it will leak a good deal of juiciness...

Can do this over in pastry covering, with mushroom and scallion stuffing...(okay, I'm starting to drool...this means stop writing on the thread!)...

Just pop up your ingredient on the appropriate board, and I am sure that there will be any number of us to rush in with recipes/ cooking instructions/accessories for you...

I bet you could do them at the same time buckytom!

Lifter - one winter when our power went out I had some of these skinny pork tenderloins - no oven - so I used by Chinese bamboo steamer - WOW were they ever good and tender!!!!! When I don't grill them I do them in the steamer.

Sizz, these are 2 of my favorites.

Easy Beef Stew
1 lb.stewing beef
1/2C. flour
1teaspoon salt
1/2teaspoon pepper
3Tablespoons cooking oil
1 1/2C. water
2 onions, sliced & separated
3 potatoes, cubed
3 carrots, sliced
3 stalks celery, sliced

Cut meat into bite-sized pieces. In paper sack, combine flour, salt, & pepper ; put pieces of meat in sack, a handful at a time, and shake to coat. Reserve flour. Brown meat in oil until browned on all sides. Add water, cover and cook over low heat until tender, about 2 1/2 hours. Add vegetables to pan & continue cooking until tender-about 30 minutes. If needed, thicken with reserved flour.

Hawaiin Chops
4 pork chops
1/2C. flour
1teaspoon salt
1/2teaspoon pepper
4 pineapple slices

Trim excess fat from pork chops. In a bowl, combine flour, salt, and pepper ; roll chops in flour mixture to coat. Arrange chops in a baking dish ; bake at 375 deg. for 30 minutes. Lay a slice of pineapple on each chop ; return to 350 deg. oven for 15 minutes.

I sometimes marinate the chops in the pineapple juice & some soy sauce for a little more flavor.
