We recently had dinner at one of my DD's and her family..
Frédérick and she are a great combo in the kitchen.
I mentioned when we went that she had been in charge of a decadently delicious dessert and he the main dish.. A Ricardo..pork dish.
We all loved it..the whole family.
I was intent on making it myself..
I had pork.. the REAL maple syrup..and had just bought beets.(Knowing full well they were to make this: )
This recipe is just soo delicious.Too delicious.
I snapped 2 pics before dinner all plated and when you are both ravenous.. it just does not work.I was walking to my chair trying to take a photo.
So all I can share is the recipe..
Now mind you..I like sweet w/ meat.I love many of the sweet main meat dishes.. especially the asian ones..I love spicy sweet chutneys with lamb stews..I love rack of lamb with honey mustard pecan crusts..There is no stopping me w/ sweet and meat.
Here is the recipe for those of you who also like this type of dish.
Oven temp..350 F
2 pork loins
3/4 C maple syrup
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup Worcestershire
2 small beets..peeled and diced
s and p
Coriander seeds..crushed..to encrust the pork w/ s and p.
Butter and evoo.
Stir maple syrup,broth, worcestershire and beets .. cook until thickened a bit and beets tender..ap 20 mins.
Seize your pork that you have seasoned w/ s&p and coriander seeds..in butter..
on all sides..
Coat and drape w/ thickened sauce and bake at 350 for ap 15 mins..
Remove pork to a plate and tent.. return the oven proof skillet that you have seized and cooked the pork in and continue to cook sauce until thickened again..return pork to pan and drape w/ sauce.. slice thinly and serve w/ additional drizzles of sauce on top.
I served mine w/ arugula mashed potatoes.
Slurp.Close your eyes good.
I wish my beautiful beet leaves had stayed as pretty as they were when I bought them.
4 stars for an easy weeknight dish..and I would readily and happily serve company w/ it if I was as fabulous as Fred in the kitchen at last minute cooking:)
