{ Cooking Thursday }

Won't you join me and share with us one of your new recipes, or an old family favorite, you can even throw in a recipe for homemade soaps or detergents (just remember to specify).

For the guidelines, you can go here.



Pork in a Creamy Wine Sauce

1 lb pork stew cubes (if you can't find the cubed pork, you can also use some boneless pork chops cut into bite size pieces)
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, sliced
olive oil
bay leaf
salt and pepper
white wine
heavy cream

In a large skillet, add a little bit of olive oil, the pork, garlic, onions, salt and pepper and bay leaf. Cook for a minute or two, then add about 1 cup of white wine.

Cover and cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes or until meat is cooked through. Keep checking often, don't let it dry up, just add a little bit of water at a time and a few blobs (lol) of butter.

Once the meat is cooked, add some heavy cream. Now I know I'm not giving you exact amounts because I just eyeball these things.

The more cream you add the more gravy you'll have, so it's entirely up to you. Add a tablespoon or so of flour and using a whisk stir really well until it is all dissolved, you don't want any lumps, just a smooth creamy gravy.

When gravy is thickened, remove from heat, add a little bit of parsley and serve over rice or mashed potatoes.

This looks REALLY yummy! I'm going to try this one probably this weekend.

Thanks for the prayers for tomorrow. It has to do with my ex husband and his new wife...and social services. I'm NOT looking forward to it at all.
