If the title of my post seems familiar, it should for it was a recipe that was posted by friend Mary, of One Perfect Bite, on Monday.
Mary and I met on a food board ages ago. I always admired both her writing skills whenever she posted as well as the creative recipes that she served. We went our separate ways and lost touch with one another. How great it was when I found her blog. She was the first Linderhof friend and she is often the first blog that I read every morning.
There are so many of her recipes that sound good and often I truly intend to make them but usually something happens and it does not come to be.
Monday, she posted the recipe for Braised Pork with Cabbage and Cream and it really looked delicious. Faced with half a pork loin that husband Jim and I were eating two chops at a time and faced with another chilly rainy afternoon, I decided that this would be just the dish.
It was fantastic. Easy. Husband Jim's first words after four bites were "this is real comfort food". And it is!
Cotes du Porc A L'Auvergnate - Braised Pork with Cream and Cabbage is real comfort food. Along with the pork and cabbage, we had haricot verte and leftover luncheon baguette to sop up the juices.
It's not really a summer meal but it will be the first dish that I will make this fall when temperatures fall once again.
For the recipe, I'll refer you to Mary's site. It is, after all, her recipe. And it's a keeper!
