Pork and Chili Pepper Bowls Image by: Angus Fergusson
Made with just a few ingredients, the ease of this recipe will make it one of those weeknight dinners you'll turn to time and time again. It tastes great over a simple bed of steamed rice, but you can also serve it inside crisp lettuce leaves for a fresher take on pork bowls.
Mince half of the Thai pepper; thinly slice remaining half. Set aside.
In large nonstick skillet, cook pork and salt over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Scrape into bowl. Set aside.
In same pan, heat half of the oil over medium heat; cook green beans, garlic, ginger and minced Thai pepper, stirring occasionally, until green beans are tender- crisp, about 5 minutes. Add pork, vinegar, fish sauce, brown sugar and 2 tbsp water; cook, stirring, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Divide among 4 serving bowls; keep warm. Wipe pan clean.
In same pan, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook eggs until whites are set yet yolks are still runny, about 3 minutes.
Arrange 1 egg over each pork bowl. Sprinkle with cilantro and green onions (if using) and remaining Thai pepper.
The Ultimate Canadian Cherry Cheesecake Image by: Jeff Coulson
Classic cheesecake is topped with a chunky sour cherry topping in this dessert favourite. The time it takes to bake on low heat helps keep the filling silky smooth. Cheesecake is easiest to cut when cold, so allow ample refrigerating time before serving.
Blueberry Sour Cream Pie Image by: Jeff Coulson
For a summer-fresh twist on Dutch apple pie, swap the traditional filling with a tangy custard made of sour cream and seasonal blueberries. Plus, the no-fuss streusel topping is much easier to make than a classic rolled pastry.
