While my wife is definitely the epicurious one in our house, I love to get my fingers dirty in the kitchen as often as possible. My prowess comes a long way second to her culinary knowledge and skills, but I have a few favourites I like to cook. So in keeping with my narrowly focused blog, about life, the universe and everything, let’s have one of my favourite recipes today.
Here we go!
Porc au roquefort
250 grams Roquefort Cheese
2 pork cutlets
4 green apples
3 medium onions
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 cup sugar
salt & pepper to season
Slice the onions into rings and fry very slowly with a little olive oil and pinch of salt until golden and almost caramelized. (Normally about 30-45 minutes.) Set aside.
Cut apples into eighths and slice out core with a knife. Cook on high heat in a wok with a little olive oil, the sugar, salt and pepper and toss regularly. Cook until golden, but still firm and retaining a little crunch. (Set aside and keep warm in a low oven.)
Season the pork and fry very gently for 20 minutes. Add wine a little at a time to keep the meat moist while cooking. (Why not have a little more for the chef!)
Layer the apples, the pork, then the onions in a baking dish. Top with crumbled Roquefort generously on top. Place under a moderate grill until cheese has melted.
Serve with a dry white wine.
