BRINED PORK CHOPS WITH FENNEL
Pork and fennel - both fennel seed and the bulb-shaped vegetable - are often companions, and the combination of flavors is quite delicious. For best results, let the chops soak for at least a few hours, preferably overnight, in a quickly made brine.

- Make the brine: Put salt, sugar, bay leaves, peppercorns, allspice and fennel seeds in a bowl. Whisk in 4 cups water to dissolve salt and sugar.
- Put pork chops in one layer in a glass or plastic container. Pour brine over to completely submerge chops. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably longer, up to overnight. Remove chops from brine and pat dry. Discard brine.
- Cook the chops: Heat oven to 400 degrees. Set a wide, heavy skillet over high heat and add olive oil. When oil is wavy, add chops in one layer and let brown for about 3 minutes per side.
- Remove chops from pan and set aside. Reduce heat to medium-high and add sliced onion and fennel, stirring to coat with oil. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until beginning to color, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and crushed fennel seeds and turn off heat.
- Lay the chops on top of the onion-fennel mixture (alternatively, transfer all of it to a baking dish) and place pan, uncovered, in oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until the internal temperature of chops is 140 degrees.
- Remove chops and let rest for about 5 minutes. Transfer onion-fennel mixture to a platter and keep warm. Cut chops into 1/8-inch slices and add to platter. Sprinkle with parsley and garnish with fennel fronds. Serve with lemon wedges.

FENNEL SEED SPIKED PORK ROAST
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- Toast the fennel seed, rosemary, thyme, and peppercorns in a heavy pan over medium-low heat until strongly fragrant and the fennel seeds are lightly browned, 1 to 3 minutes. Do not let the spices burn! Place the toasted spices, sea salt, garlic, and ouzo into a mortar and pestle or spice grinder, and grind to a paste. Score the fat layer of the pork roast with a sharp knife; rub the spice paste all over the roast.
- Spread the sliced onions and fennel into the bottom of a large roasting pan; pour enough water into the pan to just cover the vegetables. Place the roast on top of the onions and fennel with the fat layer facing upward.
- Roast in the preheated oven until the pork is tender, 5 to 6 hours (or about 40 minutes per pound). An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 185 degrees F (85 degrees C). Add extra water if needed during roasting to prevent the onions and fennel from burning.

SPICY GRILLED PORK WITH FENNEL, CUMIN AND RED ONION
Imbued with spices that char at high heat, this aromatic pork recipe is a snap to throw together - exactly what you want for a night of summer grilling. If you're got wooden skewers, don't forget to soak them in water for an hour before grilling, so they don't flare up. And if you're broiling and you don't want to bother with skewers at all, just spread the pork cubes out on a rimmed sheet pan, turning them halfway through cooking with tongs or a spatula. The pork is excellent served with pita or crusty bread or a rice pilaf, or simple grilled corn on the cob.

- Season pork lightly with kosher salt and put it in a bowl or resealable bag.
- Juice the lime into a blender or food processor and add cilantro, fish sauce, garlic, jalapeño and honey. Blend until the jalapeño and garlic are puréed, then add fennel, cumin, coriander seeds and pulse four or five times to bruise the spices and mix them in.
- Pour mixture over the pork, tossing to coat the pieces. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes while you heat the grill, or up to 24 hours.
- When ready to cook, heat the grill or broiler with a rack positioned 4 inches from the heat source.
- Thread the pork onto skewers, leaving a little space between cubes. Grill over the highest heat possible, or broil on high, for 2 to 5 minutes, then flip the skewers and continue cooking until the meat is browned all over and charred in spots. It should be just cooked through: A little pink is OK, but there shouldn't be any red spots.
- Serve the pork with cilantro sprigs and onion slices on top, and lime wedges on the side for squeezing.
PORK SHOULDER STEAKS WITH GRILLED MUSTARD GREENS RECIPE
Like a rib eye, pork shoulder has lots of intramuscular fat, and like strip steak, it has satisfying chew. Slicing it thickly and grilling it swiftly maximizes the enjoyment of both.

- Toast fennel and mustard seeds in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and mustard seeds are just beginning to pop, about 4 minutes. Transfer to spice mill or mortar and pestle and let cool. Add peppercorns and red pepper flakes and finely grind. Transfer to a small bowl and mix in cinnamon.
- Season pork steaks generously with salt and rub all over with spice mixture. Cover and let sit at room temperature 1 hour.
- Prepare a grill for medium heat; oil grate. Grill steaks, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 145°F for medium, 5-7 minutes. Transfer steaks to a cutting board, squeeze a lemon half over, and drizzle with olive oil. Let rest 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, grate garlic into a large bowl and whisk with 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Add mustard greens and toss to coat; season with kosher salt and pepper. Spread out greens over grate (save bowl) and grill until lightly charred and just wilted, about 45 seconds per side. Transfer back to bowl and squeeze remaining lemon half over. Add red pepper flakes and toss to coat.
- Transfer greens to a platter. Thinly slice pork against the grain and place on top of greens. Drizzle any accumulated juices left on your cutting board over and sprinkle with sea salt.
- Pork can be seasoned 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Let sit at room temperature 1 hour before grilling.
GRILLED PORK STEAK WITH MUSTARD GLAZE
Pork blade steaks are thin, so they cook up in a flash: 10 minutes on the grill, and they're done. These are shellacked with mustard, dusted with fennel pollen, and plated alongside grilled melon, squash blossoms, and pickled garlic scapes. Nothing is more summery.

- Light the grill: Place a chimney starter on the grate of a charcoal grill. Add newspaper in the bottom, then fill with charcoal. Light the newspaper, which will in turn light the charcoal. When the charcoal is mature with ashed-over gray embers (about 30-45 minutes later), remove the chimney and pour the charcoal into the grill. Using oven mitts, replace the grill rack.
- Season the pork: Set the pork on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Brush with mustard, then season with pepper and several generous pinches of salt. Flip the meat, press down so it absorbs the seasonings, and repeat on the other side. Sprinkle fennel pollen over the meat on both sides and set aside.
- Grill: Cut the melon in half, scoop out the seeds, and cut into 7 or 8 wedges. Place on the outer edges of the grill, where the heat is indirect, and cook 4-6 minutes, turning halfway through. Lay the pork steaks in the middle of the grill over the hotter, direct heat. Place foil-wrapped bricks on top of the pork to keep the meat's edges from curling. Remove every 2 minutes to flip the meat, then replace bricks. If the meat flares up, move it to another spot on the grill. Halfway through grilling (which will take a total of about 6-10 minutes), baste the pork on both sides with the butter mop, and sprinkle with sugar to aid the caramelization. When the melon and the pork are both nicely charred, switch their locations on the grill: move the pork to the cooler edge of the grill and the melon to the hot center for about a minute, to warm through. Meanwhile, cut the radishes into large slices and set aside.
- Finish the dish and assemble: Grill the pickled garlic scapes for 1-2 minutes. On a serving platter or wooden board, plate the pork steaks, melon, charred garlic scapes, and radishes. Sprinkle everything with fresh lemon juice, a pinch of fennel pollen, and salt. Drizzle olive oil over the melon and scatter torn squash blossoms just before serving.
- For the garlic confit, preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a small saucepan, add the garlic cloves, olive oil, lemon peel, and bay leaf. Cover and bake 1-1½ hours, until the garlic is tender and golden. For the butter mop, heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add half the garlic confit (the remainder will last, refrigerated, up to two weeks); break it up and let it sizzle, 2-3 minutes. Add the vinegar and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture becomes a thick paste. Add butter, 2 tablespoons at a time, whisking with each addition. Bring the butter to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Whisk in the mustard and black pepper, and set aside until it's time to baste.
- Place 10 garlic scapes in a jar. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil; pour the liquid over the scapes to scald them. Seal the jar and place in a cool, dark place for 10 days to ferment.
GARLIC FENNEL FLANK STEAK WITH ORANGES
While this dish may appear to be inspired by Italian or Spanish influences (which it is), it's also a take on one of my favorite Chinese dishes: spicy orange beef. I love to grill flank steak with a highly-flavored rub of garlic, fennel, salt and black pepper.

Number Of Ingredients 11
- Grind black pepper and fennel seed together in a mortar with a pestle. Pour half the pepper mixture into a small bowl and stir in salt.
- Stir remaining pepper mixture, garlic, rosemary, 2 tablespoons olive oil, orange juice, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl.
- Rub rosemary mixture over both sides of flank steak, poking mixture into steak several times with a fork. Transfer steak to a resealable plastic bag and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove steak from marinade; scrape off and discard any excess marinade.
- Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
- Sprinkle reserved pepper-fennel mixture over steak. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over orange halves.
- Cook steak on the preheated grill until it begins to firm and is reddish-pink and juicy in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Remove to a plate to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing across the grain.
- Place oranges, flesh-side down, on the grill and cook until flesh is golden and caramelized, 3 to 5 minutes. Place steak and 3 orange halves on a serving platter. Squeeze remaining caramelized orange half over the steak.
