Citrus Soy Pork Chops with Onions and Peppers (Filipino Pork Bistek)

My mom made this super tasty and simple recipe for Dane and I while we were staying over my parents’ house, waiting for escrow on our new home. Well we finally moved in, and this is the first homemade recipe in my kitchen! This traditional Filipino recipe combines the savory flavor of soy sauce with the bright, tart flavor of citrus….soooo yummy. Marinating and slow cooking the onions in the sauce soaks up so much flavor as well. My mom adds sweet peppers as well which adds more flavor and color. I love to pair mine with nutritious roasted cauliflower!

Grilled Citrus Herb Halibut with Tomato Butter and Smashed Sweet Potato

This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. I came across the original recipe in Food & Wine magazine and just fell in love. It’s very light already, but I made a few alterations to make it even healthier. The combination of the citrus flavor with the tarragon is just divine, and that tomato butter just takes it over the top…plus it’s pretty easy. You’ll want to marinate for 2 hours so remember to prepare ahead! This bright dish is perfect for the spring and summer seasons!
