Skillet Pork Steaks and Onions - Pork steaks or chops, seasoned, pan seared and braised in caramelized onion broth on the stovetop.

Skillet Pork Steaks and Onions

Many of y'all already know and love my oven pork chops and onions recipe, and it's one of our favorites too. It's a bake though, and I don't know about you, but I've found it awfully hard to use the oven this summer. Now, there are exceptions of course, like when I have a craving for something like homemade buttermilk biscuits! Or a squash casserole with all the garden squash rolling in. For the most part though, we've been living on hamburgers and hot dogs, sandwiches, salads, basic grilled foods and quick skillet meals.

After the Boil Seafood Potato Salad

After the Boil Seafood Potato Salad - a potato salad, made with leftovers from a seafood boil, using highly seasoned red-skinned potatoes, shrimp, crawfish and crab. Shown here with fried catfish and collards If you didn't have a boil, no worries - you can still make it!

Seafood Potato Salad

What some areas of the country refer to as "low country boils," are simply called seafood boils here in the Deep South, and they might involve shrimp, crawfish or crabs. With access to the best seafood, boils are actually a favorite addition to summer cookouts here along the Gulf Coast, and certainly one of my favorite parties to attend. If there's a boil-master manning a massive outdoor cooker that's loaded with Gulf seafood, I'm definitely in!

Stovetop Pork and Beans

Stovetop Pork and Beans - An unbaked, baked bean recipe, made with navy beans, onions, jalapeno, bacon, brown sugar, and prepared on the stovetop.

Stovetop Pork and Beans

It was just The Cajun and me for the 4th of July this year, so I kept things very simple. Smoked rib chops from Corky's, warmed on the grill, my classic potato salad, no husk microwave corn on the cob and these unbaked baked beans.

I call them that because it's essentially my baked beans recipe, without baking it, and using canned navy beans - sort of a semi-homemade, stovetop pork and beans, that I enjoy serving as a side dish anytime.
