    Very quick, delicious, and satisfying. I like dishes like this that do not require noodles or rice as a base for the sauce; this sauce is really for the meat. Thanks, FoodieFinn! Made for <b>PAC Spring '09</b>.

    Wow this is one of the best dishes we've ever made! So elegant, very rich. We made it for company and I'm glad we did. We used quarter loin chops and served it with plain basmati rice and sweet and sour cabbage (Recipe #187086) which was a really excellent balance to the richness of the pork. Will make again and again, thanks!

    Five stars are from my husband...I don't eat meat. He'd been wanting a good pork entree, and this hit the spot! I served it with a yellow squash souffle, balsamic-roasted sweet potatoes, and baby lima beans. Plenty of vegs for me, and all that tender flavorful piggy for HIM! Will make this for da man again, for sure!


A fanatic over Food Network, cookbooks, and wine. Daydreams consist of flavor profiles, and wine pairings. Alas, its just a passion. My regular job is working at a high end grocery store. Oh, and I am a hardcore Finnish fanatic, I am born in Canada, but hold dual citizenship, my parents moved to CAN just months before I was born. I daydream of winning the lottery and being able to jet off to Italy for a cooking vacation! Also, I collect cookbooks..and am up to something like 150..although its not the #, Its the quality..and the inspiration I get from them..they are reference material.
