FFwD: Green-as-Spring Pork Stew

Green as Spring Pork Stew

Originally, this French Fridays with Dorie recipe called for veal. I haven’t really eaten veal since becoming an un-vegetarian (uh, 1994 1995?) and I didn’t really see the need to use it here. Not when there’s…PORK! So, yeah, I subbed the veal for pork shoulder. And I also made mine more broth-y by using a little bit less meat and adding some wine to de-glaze the pan.

There are a number of steps to this and it’s kind of a big production, so it’s probably best for a weekend project. . . . → Read More: FFwD: Green-as-Spring Pork Stew

FFwD: Pork Chops with Rosemary Butter, plus Delicate Squash with Maple & Dijon

Pork Chops with Rosemary Butter, plus Delicate Squash with Maple & Dijon

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie was originally Veal Chops with Rosemary Butter, but I decided to use pork instead for something I like to call: “Pork Chops with Rosemary Butter.” If you want the original recipe, it is online here: Veal Chops with Rosemary Butter.

Now that we’ve got that intro out of the way, I’d also like to add that I am extremely excited for the International Food Bloggers Conference next week in Seattle and meeting up with a bunch of . . . → Read More: FFwD: Pork Chops with Rosemary Butter, plus Delicate Squash with Maple & Dijon

Marinated and Grilled Green Curry Pork Tenderloin

Grilled and Marinated Green Curry Pork Tenderloin

This is the pork tenderloin recipe to beat all pork tenderloin recipes. At one time, I thought this honor went to Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apple Cider Jus and while that is still a pretty tasty recipe, this one for Green Curry Pork Tenderloin has won. Won everything.

Oh my god. This is seriously the best pork I have ever made. And yes, it seems like there are a lot of steps (there are) and yes, you’ll have to do some planning, but you will be rewarded with tender, . . . → Read More: Marinated and Grilled Green Curry Pork Tenderloin

Danish Meatloaf with Bacon (Forloren Hare)

Danish Meatloaf with Bacon (Forloren Hare)

So, what is the best way to follow a Meatless Monday post? Why a big, meaty one of course! Even jwa, who is not a huge fan of meatloaf was on board with this meal. Danish Meatloaf…who knew? The bacon gets nice and crispy in places and helps keep the meat all moist (the cream helps that too, actually), and there’s lingonberry jelly in the gravy giving it that extra-Nordic flair.

Originally, the recipe said that this serves 8 but I just don’t see how that is at all possible (and . . . → Read More: Danish Meatloaf with Bacon (Forloren Hare)

FFwD: Fresh Orange Pork Tenderloin

Fresh Orange Pork Tenderloin

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie was fairly interesting — pork tenderloin, cut into pieces, browned and then cooked quickly in orange juice, zest and segments, cardamom and onion. So, um, I changed a few things.

Originally, the diced onions were to be added with the orange, but I caramelized those a bit first thing, then removed them and browned the pork. I added the onions back in when I added the rest of the ingredients. I just wasn’t really into the idea of boiled diced onions, when I could brown . . . → Read More: FFwD: Fresh Orange Pork Tenderloin
