    ~Nimz~'s Note:

    My sister and I cook dinner for a group of want-a-be race car drivers that meet in the Man Cave every Monday night. This is one of their favorite meals that we fix. It is simple to make and is just down right good eating. It makes its own gravy that is great over rice or mashed potatoes. Hope you enjoy.

      Simplicity, exactly what one can prepare while following a football game! It was tasty. Although the directions only stated medium-high heat, I turned the heat to medium-low for the hour of simmering. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.

      What a lovely recipe ~Nimz~. It was simply very tasty. We enjoyed this entree very much, served with mashed potatoes and Coconut Creamed Corn. It made the perfect comfort food birthday dinner that I was craving. The pork was moist and tender and the gravy was delish. The dish was quick and easy to make. Thanks so much for sharing another winner my friend.
