Any time my food jumps up and down shouting "Here I am, here I am" I am going to run like heck!!!

I've got this going in the crockpot overnight:

Pork Chops With Cabbage and Tomatoes

I used leeks instead of onion. It smells really good--hopefully it will taste good. I won't be dressing it with the sour cream. I also added a dash or two of srirachi sauce on top of the cabbage.

If you are getting a strident alcohol flavour that overpowers the rest of the ingredients you probably haven't cooked the wine down enough. I have a recipe for a French beef casserole which requires half a bottle of wine reduced to a few spoonsful!

And you know what they say - never cook with a wine you wouldn't be happy to drink. If it isn't fit to drink it isn't fit to cook with.
I know we have had this conversation before, but I CAN taste the alcohol in food with the first bite. And no it doesn't all cook out. Maybe my taste buds are just more sensitive to it. Sorry, but I spit it right out. The only time I can't taste it is in long simmering spaghetti sauce. And it is usually because the cook only put in enough to just enhance the flavor of the sauce. Less than a quarter of a cup. Just a splash. (
