1. Maple-Chili Glazed Pork Medallions

Prep Time: 20 min Serves: 4
Cook Time: 20 min Level: Easy

Pork medallions are quick and easy to prepare, and are particularly tasty with a maple-chili glaze.

1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut crosswise into 1-inch-thick medallions
2 teaspoons canola oil
1/4 cup apple cider
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon cider vinegar

Mix chili powder, salt and ground chipotle in a small bowl. Sprinkle over both sides of pork.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until golden, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Add cider, syrup and vinegar to the pan. Bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, turning the pork occasionally to coat, until the sauce is reduced to a thick glaze, 1 to 3 minutes. Serve the pork drizzled with the glaze.

Chicken pot pie with just four ingredients? It couldn't get any easier!

1 cup diced cooked chicken
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup
2 cups Green Giant® frozen mixed vegetables, thawed

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In medium bowl, combine vegetables, chicken and soup; mix well.

Spoon a generous 1/3 cup of chicken mixture into each. Pull edges of dough over filling toward center; pleat and pinch dough gently to hold in place.

4. Miso-Glazed Peas & Carrots

Low Carb Recipe

Provided by

Prep Time: 15 min Serves: 4
Cook Time: 15 min

This sweet, salty and tangy twist on the old standby vegetable combo is sure to please the whole family.

3 tablespoons miso, preferably white (see Ingredient note)
1 tablespoon mirin 

2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 cups thinly sliced carrots, fresh or frozen
1/4 cup water
2 cups frozen peas, (8 ounces)

Combine miso, mirin, vinegar, ginger and oil in a small bowl. Place carrots and water in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Stir in the miso mixture and peas; cook, stirring occasionally, until the peas are heated through and the sauce is slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.

Ingredient Note: Miso: Fermented bean paste made from barley, rice or soybeans used in Japanese cooking to add flavor to dishes, such as soups, sauces and salad dressings. Miso is available in different colors; in general, the lighter the color, the more mild the flavor. Look for miso alongside the refrigerated tofu in the supermarket. It will keep, in the refrigerator, for more than a year.
Mirin: a Japanese cooking wine made from rice, sweeter than sake.
