Whatever you’re grilling, you need some go-to sides that you can count on. A crunchy, slightly acidic, mildly sweet foil to sticky barbecue glazed chicken, thick juicy burgers, or low and slow-smoked ribs, slaw is always a favorite. You need something to cut the fat and this dish delivers.

Healthy, filling, and simple to prepare, this dish is easy enough to make for weeknight family dinners, yet sophisticated enough for entertaining. The bright green peas pair perfectly with the fresh mint in the couscous.

Pork Chops with Fennel Salad and Burdock Rice
Chef'd

Brining meat enhances its juiciness. If you haven’t tried this technique before, don’t worry--it’s easy! Brine is simply salt, sugar, and liquid. In this instance, the tamari sauce provides the salt, the sugar is found in the sake, and there you have your liquid too.
