Final post – I need to get back to work! Another “let’s see what I need to use up in the fridge” recipe inspired by my older brother’s pork dinner of a few months ago.
Pork in white wine and cream
- 900 gms pork pieces
- 60gms butter
- 1 leek chopped finely
- 125gms chopped chorizo
- 2 tblsps pesto – I used my wild garlic homemade one
- 250mls white wine
- 1 stock cube and 250mls water
- i50 mls cream
I fried off the pork in Paddy’s bacon fat – he had a lovely lunch today – and put it into a separate saucepan. I used a medium pan and fried it off in two batches – otherwise it just sort of broils instead of fries in the pan and leaves the meat very tough. I put the butter into the pan and sauteed off the the leeks slowly. When they were softened I added the chorizo and the pesto and cooked that off for five minutes, then threw all on top of the pork.
I added the wine, water and stock cube to the saucepan and let the lot simmer for twenty minutes with the lid on at a low heat. I then added the cream and voila – Sunday dinner made – being served tonight with broccoli for the banters and with rice and carrots for the non banting family members!
I’ll let you know how the couch to five k is going soon….
