Pork With Mushrooms and Two Corn Grits
- Melt butter in a medium, heavy saucepan. Add corn kernels and saute over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Remove corn from pan. Add water and salt and bring to a boil; gradually whisk in grits. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes or until thick, stirring often. Stir in corn, chives, sugar and pepper.
- While grits are cooking, sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add half of pork and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove from skillet; repeat with 1 tablespoon oil and remaining pork.
- Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to skillet and heat; add mushrooms and cook over medium heat 5 minutes. Add broth and next 4 ingredients, stirring to loosen particles from the bottom of skillet. Combine cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water, stirring until blended. Add cornstarch mixture to skillet and bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute or until thick and bubbly, stirring constantly. Return pork to skillet; serve pork mixture over Two-Corn Grits.
