Pork “Al Latte” – Now 100% Milk Free!

This comforting pork stew recipe is exactly the kind of
homey dish you want waiting for you after a long, hard week…and maybe a 13-hour
drive. Unfortunately, I made this last week, so I couldn’t actually enjoy it
today, after a long, hard week and 13-hour drive, but just editing it made me
feel better. It was that good.


This stew version is inspired by the classic Italian recipe,
“maiale al latte,” or “pork in milk,” but instead of the usual moo juice, I
decided to make my own with chicken broth and crème fraiche. I figured I’d get
the same basic viscosity and fat content (okay, maybe a tad more), but also a
little more flavor, and a better texture once reduced.

I topped it with some fried sage, which is an optional, messy,
but delicious extra step, and makes this much more restauranty. Simply heat a
1/2-inch of vegetable oil in a small pan, and toss in some (not wet!) whole
sage leaves. Fry until crisp, about 10-15 seconds

The classic preparation involves braising and slicing a
whole roast, but one taste and I think
you’ll agree it translates beautifully to the stew delivery system. I really
hope you give it a try soon. Enjoy!


Ingredients for 4 portions:
1 1/2 pound pork shoulder, cut in 2-inch cubes (note: I only
had 1 pound, but the recipe will work with another half, which will make four
nice portions)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 strips bacon
1 small yellow onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup crème fraiche
2 tbsp fresh chopped sage leaves, plus more for frying
salt and pepper to taste
red chili flakes to taste
*Simmer covered for 1 hour, and then uncovered until the
meat is very tender, and the sauce is thickened. Adjust with more broth if
needed.

Garlic Rice

Garlic Rice

by Pam on May 8, 2013

I wanted to serve rice with the Indonesian Pork Tenderloin[1] and Indonesian Cucumber Salad[2] that I served for dinner but I didn’t want it to be plain rice. I found a recipe on Life’s Ambrosia[3] that sounded perfect. We all love garlic in my house so this rice would go over well with all of us and I thought it would pair nicely with the rest of the meal. It was super simple to make and tasted fantastic – I honestly don’t think I will be making plain rice again.

Heat the butter and olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add the rice and cook, stirring often so the rice doesn’t stick to the pan, for 3-4 minutes. Add the chicken broth and season with sea salt and white pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium low. Cover and let cook 20 minutes.

Remove the rice from the burner without removing the lid and let it sit for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the lid and fluff rice with a fork. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve. Enjoy.

Garlicky Quinoa with Toasted Pine Nuts, Chives, and Parsley

Garlicky Quinoa with Toasted Pine Nuts, Chives, and Parsley

by Pam on June 23, 2013

I wanted a healthy and delicious side dish to pair with the chicken and asparagus I was serving for dinner. I found some quinoa, shallot, and garlic in the pantry along with some chicken broth. I also found some chives, parsley, and toasted pine nuts in the refrigerator. I loved the fresh flavor the herbs gave to this side dish and the salty crunchy pine nuts added great texture and taste. We all, kids included, loved this quinoa and gobbled it all up.

Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot then cook, stirring often for 2 minutes. Add the quinoa and minced garlic then cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Add the chicken broth then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste; bring to a boil. Cover with a lid then reduce heat to low; simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat then let sit covered for 5 minutes.

Remove the lid then fluff with a fork; add the pine nuts, parsley, and chives then toss to mix evenly. Taste and re-season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
