Sunday Dinner – Pork Grillades

October 9, 2011 § Leave a comment

We were at Costco’s yesterday and they had boneless pork loins on sale. We purchased one and I was going to cut it in half and roast one today and freeze the other. When I woke up this morning, it just did not seem like a roast pork day. After some deliberation, I decided it was really a Cajun day and that Grillades was the name of that tune. I know that they are usually made with beef or veal, but why not pork.
You must have grits with Grillades so I opted for Alton Brown’s Cheese Grits. I did use 1 can of chicken stock and made up the remainder of the liquid with milk.

This really made for happy bellies. The recipe follows.

Pork Grillades

Grillades are normally made with beef or veal but I decided to try it with pork. Served over Cheesy Polenta, this is pretty hard to beat.

Recipe By:
Serving Size: 4
Cuisine: Cajun
Main Ingredient: Pork
Categories: Winter, Fall, Saute, Main Dish

-= Ingredients =-
~~ — For The Pork — ~~
8 each Boneless Pork Loin Chops ; 3/4″ thick
1 cup Flour
3 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
~~ — For The Sauce — ~~
1/4 cup Olive oil
1/4 cup Flour
1 cup Celery ; diced
1 cup Green pepper ; diced
1 cup Onion ; diced
1 cup Tomatoes ; 1
1 teaspoon Dried oregano
1 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Chicken Stock

-= Instructions =-
Pound the pork cutlets to about 3/8-inch thick. Mix the seasoning with the flour. Dredge the pork in the flour and pan fry them until nicely browned.  Put them in a dish and hold in a 200 degree oven while frying the remaining cutlets.
Once all the pork is browned, add the olive oil and flour into the pan and cook to a light brown roux. Add the onions, celery and green pepper and cook until tender.  Add the tomatoes and saute for about 2 minutes.  Add the seasonings and the chicken stock and bring to a boil.  Return the pork to the pan making sure the sauce covers them.
Cover, reduce heat and cook for about 15 minutes.
Serve over Cheesy Polenta.
