I'm always on the search for a new recipe. This and several others were in a book I just finished reading, Crunch Time, by Diane Mott Davidson It may sound a little strange to some of you, but trust me it is wonderful, and takes very little time to make. Perfect served over fluffy white rice.
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1 pound ground pork
2 tablespoons freshly minced or crushed garlic
2 teaspoons demi-glace de poulet or demi-glaze veau (chicken or veal demi-glace)
1/4 cup all=purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cups fresh orange juice
1/4 cup fresh or organic, not-from-concentrate lime juice
2 teaspoons (or more) granulated sugar
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
In a large (12-inch) nonstick saute' pan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the pork and the garlic, and cook, stirring and breaking up the pork, until the meat is just cooked. Add the demi-glace and stir well.
Add the flour, oregano, salt, and pepper, and cook stirring, until the flour is cooked and the mixture bubbles.
Stir in the juices and sugar and raise the heat to medium. Stir constantly until the mixture bubbles and is thickened. Taste and correct the seasoning.
Spoon the pork onto a large platter and sprinkle with the chopped cilantro. This dish goes well with hot cooked rice.
