Hey friends, I am excited to share a delicious recipe that might be the best one we’ve shared all month. On the blog today is a new favorite hearty meal that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. The title is super fancy, but don’t let that fool you. It’s an easy to make dinner, super manageable for this busy time of year. This Pork Bourguignon recipe is sure to make it to your Holiday meal plan, and feeds the masses with ease.
The best part, is the Pork is cooked in mostly wine, something everyone loves hearing. Of course it all burns off in the oven when it cooks for 2 hours, but the grape flavor sticks around and it’s incredible. The end result is this beautiful purple colored meat that is melt in your mouth tender.
Where did we come up with this recipe? From the “Joy of Cooking,” cookbook of course. If you are just tuning in, we have some explaining to do. Last month, we decided to take a leap of faith and cook through a book Sammy and I both grew up on. It might as well be an encyclopedia of recipes, because there is about 4000 to choose from. So, as you can imagine this is going to be quite a process. Why are we doing this? It’s a very old book with good bones, and we feel most of the recipe ingredients and instructions are outdated. There is also not a single photo in the entire book, something we strongly feel is helpful to those cooking a recipe for the first time.
Since we will not be cooking through the book in any specific order, each of our blog post will come with a page number and you can grab a copy of the book HERE if you don’t have one already. This way if you have a specific recipe you’d like to see, you can reach out to us in some way and we will go through the trial and error process for you. Going back to the Pork Bourguignon, the recipe can be found on page 460 if you’d like to check it out. Did we mention we turned this into a one pot meal. That part we changed up in the original recipe because everyone needs a fancy one pot meal in there life.
That concludes are post for today, we hope you have enjoyed your time with us. Stay tuned for a real fall breakfast treat in our upcoming Friday post. Happy cooking everyone!
