Pork no longer needs to be massacred with cooking - I know it is a hard habit to break if this is how you were brought up but pork today is perfectly safe to eat slightly pink and it is so juicy, Try it - not blood rare but just a light pink. This is a very tasty recipe.
This is very tasty, however I must admit that when cooking the pork the stated amount of time was not enough for my family. After resting the pork was still VERY pink so I put it back in the oven for another 5 minutes. This cooked the pork through entirely. I know that this probably wasn't Ming's intention for the dish but for those of you who like thoroughly cooked pork please know you need to cook the meat longer.
I developed this recipe based on what I had on hand: rosemary fresh from the pot on my balcony, a Niman Ranch pork tenderloin, and a brand-new jar of dijon mustard. The result is an incredibly flavorful, relatively quick dinner that is also pretty low in fat (you could use a nonstick pan and less oil for even lighter results, though the searing will not be as good). Great with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies for a simple weeknight meal that's fit for guests.
This definitely company-worthy & easy-to-fix recipe from *French Bistro and Cafe Cooking* by Pierre-Yves Chupin (& the pic) made my eyes grow wide & my mouth water. Per his intro, "The art of simmering is a very important part of bistro cooking. All you have to do is combine all the ingredients, put them in a skillet (or casserole dish) & allow to cook b4 enjoying the rich flavors." Even that part of the recipe won me over. A white Burgundy (Rully or Pouilly-Fuisse) was suggested to accompany this dish. *Enjoy* ! *Edited To Add* In response to reviewer comments, I added the word *whole* to help describe the spice cloves, suggested med-sized shallots & gave options for the onion ingredient. :-)
From Rachel Ray - this is delicious & easy - one of her 30 minute meals. It makes a nice gravy so serve with potatoes, thick bread or rice that can soak it up! (I used boneless pork chops, trimmed of fat and pounded thin).
'Enjoy the best of two countries in one meal! A traditional Austrian dish, schnitzel makes a mouthwatering meal when served with a creamy sauce flavored with Gouda, a cows’ milk cheese named after the city of Gouda in the Netherlands.'. Local recipe. Serving suggestion from original recipe introduction: 'This feel-good comfort food begs for fresh, sauteed vegetables and seared apples tossed with onions, butter and thyme.' What I served: mashed potatoes with green onions, little bit of plain yogurt, salt; and a medley of steamed carrots (standard, yellow, indigo) and fresh green beans. The oil was reduced from 1 1/2 cups to 1/2 cup. I cooked the chops for 5 minutes each side in 1/4" of oil on medium heat.
