'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.
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.
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).
