This looks like a long recipe, but it's very easy to make and absolutely Incredible in flavour. I usually have everything but the pork and rosemary on hand. My MIL always made this for X-mas and I finally asked for the recipe. She said she got it from a magazine, but I'm not sure which one. I don't normally have Port on hand so I always have used H2O.
