Pork chop rice bowlsChopped Dinner ChallengeThe Chopped Dinner Challenge is a new series of recipes showing you how easy it is to cook like a winning Chopped competitor. Every week, FN Dish will showcase a recipe created by Food Network Kitchens that uses at least one of the Chopped basket ingredients, plus basic grocery goods and simple staples.

For this week’s Chopped Dinner Challenge, the chefs of Food Network Kitchens chose to feature the basket ingredient smoked pork chops, which have a ton of smokehouse flavor that can work with a number of dishes. But the pork takes on an Asian inspiration in this recipe for Vietnamese Grilled Smoked Pork Chop Rice Bowls, which uses the smoked pork to top a flavorful and filling rice bowl. It’s a supper your family will appreciate for its sweet, savory and spicy tastes. Plus it’s infinitely more fun and creative than ordering takeout.

But for this Chopped Dinner Challenge, the featured item is the popular Korean condiment kimchi, which has made it into many fusion dishes time and time again with rave reviews.

Reinvent a Middle Eastern Classic with Turkey for a Spin on Tradition

by in Recipes, Shows, November 13th, 2013

Sausage FalafelChopped Dinner ChallengeThe Chopped Dinner Challenge is a new series of recipes showing you how easy it is to cook like a winning Chopped competitor. Every week, FN Dish will showcase a recipe created by Food Network Kitchens that uses at least one of the Chopped basket ingredients, plus basic grocery goods and simple staples. Consider it your very own Chopped challenge. Just take this frequent tip from the judges: Don’t forget to season!

On this week’s Chopped: Thanksgiving episode, the competitors found turkey sausage, rutabaga, green bean casserole and honey-baked ham in their appetizer round baskets. Nearly each competitor decided to make a hash with the ingredients, and most succeeded, except for one, whose execution suffered. But for this Chopped Dinner Challenge, the featured item is turkey sausage, which is an ingredient that’s great cooked on its own but even better when it’s taken out of the casing and incorporated with other ingredients to make an entirely new dish, like this Sausage Falafel with Romaine and Yogurt Sauce. This variation on a Middle Eastern classic is a great way to introduce your family to different flavors and cultures.
