Ladies and gentlemen, I am confused.
When I made this recipe, it smelled great. The pork was fantastic – I wish I had more in the freezer it was so good.
The sauce, however, left something to be desired. I’m just not sure what that something is.
It’s a trifle .. well, it’s not bland. I just don’t know what it is. The dish didn’t get past the mushroom soup-beefy onion soup – gaahhhrlic – oniony-ness that seemed to overpower the pork. That’s probably my fault, since I strayed from the recipe. But my family and I – including my picky daughter – ate it up.
But when it came to left overs, I couldn’t make myself eat it for a day or two.
And then I was staaarrving for protein, and all of a sudden there was a ton of pork left over that was just begging to be consumed.
This recipe isn’t one I’d purposefully set out to make ever again.
It’s not for dinner parties.
But if it’s the end of the month and money is scarce, and the ingredients are something you’ve got in your pantry, (and let’s face it, most of us do) it’s some good eating.
