      Elly this is wonderful! I followed exactly and paired with your Skillet Roasted Potatoes
      .Skillet Potatoes for a great weekend dinner for Mike and I. Leftovers just as fabulous and even moe so as the flavors sat around partying with each other into the pork. Fabulous. I rarely use fennel and need to add that to my regulars. What a lovely flavor it imparts. Made in honour of your lovely husband.

      What a great pork dish! We love fennel, so I used fresh fennel bulb for 1 of the onions. Sauteed it along with the onion. Forgot the parsley, found it sitting on the cutting board after we had eaten! Duh!!! Served this with Elly's "Skillet Roasted Potatoes" and sauteed chanterelles. Yummy Indian Summer dinner! Thanks, Elly. My picture doesn't do the dish justice. Will try again next time I make the dish:)
