Food Monday ~ Pork Portofino

One of these days I will give a recipe with NO booze in it. I do have some, you know! I am just thinking ahead…


Pork Portofino
Preheat oven to 180°C

2lb Lean Pork pieces
4 tablespoons Soy Sauce
2ozs Flour
4 tablespoons Redcurrant Jelly
2ozs Butter
6 tablespoons Tomato puree
2 large onions chopped
4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
12 tablespoons Port
6ozs Mushrooms
8 tablespoons Cream

Toss pork in seasoned flour. Melt butter and brown pork and remove from pan. Add onions to juices and sauté for 5 minutes.

Put pork and all ingredients in together except mushrooms and Cream. Bring to boil, put in a casserole dish in pre heated oven for 45 minutes (can be cooled and frozen at this stage. Thaw on day required) Add mushrooms and cream and cook for a further 45 minutes until it thickens.

This looks terrible when you put it in the oven at first but it tastes lovely when cooked. Serve with Rice or potatoes.
Serves 6

    Pork Portofino sounds GOOD! Grannymar

    12 tablespoons Port = lash in half a bottle? 😉

    We’re having a cheese fondue (with lots of Kirsch) tonight, for a birthday celebration.

    My ‘baby’ is 18 today, and studying hard for school exams 🙁

    I’ll make her your chocolate cake next week to celebrate when the exams finish. 😀
