I'm feelin ''Italiano''
I am one for cooking dinner early so the house smells good all day long. That's the case for today too. I started with ground beef and meatballs I made and were frozen. I didn't much care for the meatballs, I added something not quite right to them, like orange juice, cumin, corn breading. Too sweet, so now in the worlds largest skillet, is the frozen gb, the frozen mb's, onion, s&p, garlic, 2 strips of fried bacon cut up tiny, 1 T of hard cooked egg yolk crumbled, white wine, and 2 large cans of Pomma Doro (SP) whole tomatoes in juice that I squished until my fingers hurt. It's been cooking about 3 hours now and smells like Tuscany in this house. Over typical spaghetti noodles, with garlic bread and green salad, that'll do 'er for din din. In other words, it's my version of Spaghetti Bolognese.
FYI, I just tested/tasted the sauce, it could not be better. I can't believe how fortunate I am to have succeeded there. Same as the experience someone had with their makeshift gumbo/jambalaya that turned out spectacular for them yesterday. Sheesh, we're on a roll here~!~
Some kind of apple pork chops. Don't know how I'm doing it yet.
Lone Star Grill in Cleveland Ohio is located in the Flats; one night I had dinner there. It does 'the' best apple pork chops. All I remember is that they're pretty fat little chops (your order comes with 1) that appear to have been quickly browned on both sides. Then thin complete round slices of peeled apples are put atop of them in a carmel bourbon glaze probably wrapped in foil completely then baked. You get your chop with the baked apples on top, seeping in the nice thick lusious glaze that is piping hot. More of the apples are served along side in a little round ramiken gooey in their sauce. I really loved my meal that night
. Sorry I couldn't be of more help
but you mentioned apples and pork and that came to mind
