Follow the steps below to make a batch of delicious minestrone soup:

Steps for making minestrone soup

  • Add olive oil to a large pot or a GoodCook® Dutch Oven and place over medium-high heat.
  • Add in the diced onion, zucchini, and asparagus, sautéing for 3-5 minutes or until onions soften.
  • Add in the crushed tomatoes, kidney beans, vegetable broth, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper. Cover and cook on medium low for 10-15 minutes.
  • Stir in the pasta and cook uncovered for 8-12 more minutes or until the pasta is al dente.
  • Pour the soup into a bowl and top with parmesan cheese and garnish with basil.

Tips for making minestrone soup

  • Add fresh or frozen green beans if you can’t find asparagus.
  • Cut the vegetables approximately the same size so that they cook at the same rate.
  • Add the rind from a wheel of parmesan cheese to the broth for extra cheesy flavor.
  • For extra protein, add cooked, sliced Italian sausage. Or, add ground beef or ground turkey. Sauté 1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey with the onions, until the meat is broken up and browned, then continue with the rest of the recipe.

How to store & freeze minestrone soup

  • To reheat the soup, thaw it in the fridge overnight. Heat the soup on the stovetop and add the pasta once the soup is heated thoroughly. Prepare the pasta using instructions on the package and add to the hot soup.

Loaded with bright, fresh spring veggies, this chicken veggie spring skillet is an easy and flavorful meal that comes together in 30 minutes. Chicken tenders and spring veggies are nestled in a skillet and seasoned with heaps of fresh basil, balsamic vinegar and Italian seasoning. This tasty, one-dish chicken veggie spring skillet is perfect as a quick weeknight meal.

We added fresh spring asparagus, vibrant cherry tomatoes, chunks of purple onion and chicken tenders to a skillet for a one-pan meal that’s big on flavor and easy on clean-up. Cook this one pan meal up in a large non-stick sauté pan or a cast iron skillet. The GoodCook® Everyday Sauté Pan is roomy enough for this whole meal and has a non-stick interior that cleans up easily. 

To get started on this simple dinner, prep the veggies using a GoodCook® Carbon Steel Chef’s Knife. Follow the instructions below to trim the ends off the asparagus:

How to trim asparagus

The ends of your asparagus will need to be trimmed before adding to this recipe. The ends of the stalks are woody and tough. Either cut off the ends with a GoodCook® Carbon Steel Chef’s Knife or gently bend each asparagus stalk and the woody part will snap off. 

Steps to make chicken and veggie spring skillet

  • Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet.
  • Add the garlic and onion, sautéing for 3-5 minutes or until the liquids release. 
  • Add the chicken tenders and cook for another 5 minutes, until browned. 
  • Add the Italian seasoning, balsamic vinegar, and basil.
  • Add in all of the veggies, cooking for another 5 minutes or until the veggies are tender and the chicken is cooked through. Use a GoodCook® Digital Thermometer to measure the internal temperature.
  • Serve the chicken and veggies as is or with a side of crusty bread or brown rice.

Chicken Veggie Spring Skillet

Tips for cooking

  • If you love dark chicken meat, swap out the chicken tenders for chicken thighs. Remember, it takes longer for the thighs to cook through. Use a GoodCook® Digital Thermometer to measure the internal temperature.
  • The asparagus does not need to be blanched first. Keep an eye on the tenderness, since it can go from bite tender to mushy very quickly.
  • If basil isn’t your thing, sub in flat leaf Italian parsley instead.

With the GoodCook® line of cookware and kitchen accessories, one pan dinners are a breeze to whip up. Start this recipe with a GoodCook® Carbon Steel Chef’s Knife for the slicing and cook everything up in a GoodCook® Everyday Sauté Pan, which has a spacious interior and is easy to clean.

Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Chops

Juicy, succulent brown sugar glazed pork chops are perfect for a delicious and satisfying family dinner. Tender and juicy bone-in pork chops are smothered in a tasty marinade and cooked to perfection. These irresistible brown sugar glazed pork chops come together easily and cook up in 30 minutes or less!  

Baking pork chops in the oven is one of the best methods for a fast and easy meal. As the pork chops cook, the rest of your meal can be prepared. The GoodCook® Everyday Sauté Pan is the best pan for cooking up this moist and tender pork. It features a silicone lacquer exterior, an easy clean nonstick interior and a flame guard bakelite handle.

They are tender, moist, succulent and perfectly delicious tender morsels of pork and that brown sugar sauce? Divine!

Steps to cook brown sugar glazed pork chops

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Season the pork chops with salt and pepper.
  • Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large GoodCook® Skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side; set aside.
  • Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter in the skillet. Add the garlic, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Remove the garlic from the heat and add it to an oven-safe baking dish.
  • In warm skillet, add brown sugar, honey, oregano, thyme and basil until well combined. Pour over the pork chops.
  • Roast the pork chops until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 145°F, about 20-30 minutes.
  • Garnish with thyme and serve immediately.

What kind of pork should I buy for this recipe?

Bone-in pork chops are fattier than chops without the bone, so your meal will be more flavorful and stay a little juicier with bone-in pork. Look for bone-in rib chops, center cut rib chops, or pork rib chops.

What Temperature Should Pork Chops be Cooked To?

The internal temperature of cooked pork should be 145 °F to be considered safe to eat. Use a GoodCook® Digital Thermometer to measure the internal temperature for doneness. Simply unfold the thermometer to turn it on. Insert the tip in multiple spots on the pork to check for doneness. In just 3 seconds you’ll have an accurate reading. The GoodCook® Digital Thermometer is washable and is NSF certified for accuracy. It also quickly and easily switches from °F to °C. 

Tips & Tricks for Baking Pork Chops

  • Bring the pork to room temperature before cooking, about 30 minutes to an hour, on the counter. Room temperature pork cooks more evenly and quickly.
  • Season the pork chops liberally before cooking.
  • Sear the pork chops first. This produces a browning and creates a flavorful crusty outside that seals in the juices and keeps your chops tender.
  • Use a high-quality digital thermometer to measure the internal temperature of the pork. We love the GoodCook® Digital Thermometer.
  • Let the pork chops rest for 5 minutes before serving. The meat will reabsorb the juices that migrate towards the outside of the pork during cooking. Pork chops that don’t rest will lose valuable juices when cut.

What to serve with pork chops

  • Mashed Potatoes or cheesy potatoes
  • Rice Pilaf
  • Any type of pasta
  • Crusty bread
  • Roasted Broccoli or roasted asparagus
  • Kale salad
  • Sautéed greens

Get a hearty, flavorful meal on the table with the GoodCook® line of cookware and kitchen accessories. The GoodCook® Everyday Sauté Pan is perfect for cooking up these tasty pork chops. With a non-stick interior and a bakelite handle, this is the best pan we’ve found for getting dinner cooked perfectly.
