In this contemporary rendition, I'm using the tandoor's trademark spices — such as cumin, cayenne, and ginger — but since I don't have a clay oven to call my own, I'm cooking the chicken on a barbecue, then serving it in a hefty pita pocket with tangy cumin-scented yogurt sauce.

This type of meat has more fat than a hanger steak or flank steak, meaning even the most mildly seasoned skirt steak will have out-of-this world flavor and juiciness.

After indulgence in Aspen and before any July 4th eating sprees, I've been attempting to enjoy healthier dishes that profess more delicate flavors. This weekend, I can't wait to make a simple, straightforward, yet elegant recipe from Italian culinary expert Marcella Hazan.

Healthy yet hearty, quick-cooking but also succulent, pork chops are perfect for a lazy Sunday evening, and fit right into your Summer schedule when grilled and served alongside a crispy, Asian-influenced slaw.
Make fire-roasted pork chops that are tender enough to taste like a million bucks, but won't cost you anything close to that. Look for bone-in pork chops at the store to get added flavor and value. Check out tonight's dinner when you read more
