    Mm! I like Pork and Ginger as a combination…but then love ginger and Pork… so I might jsut add ginger to this one.

    I have a friend who says of pigs: I love pigs, they are so intelligent. On top of that they are great to eat.
    Echoes my feelings precisley.

    Yum! This sounds just dandy. I’d make it in a NY minute if Hubby weren’t a vegetarian. Would someone who makes it please invite me over?? And pay for the ticket?? pretty please?

    Magpie – Now I need to buy more ginger!

    Alice – I think we will all call round to Magpie’s next time he is cooking. 😉

    Pigs wallow in mud, and yet they are eaten? More brandy please– that way I don’t know what I’m eating.

    Ooh love the sound of this. A little hot to be casseroling but I can do a mean pork fillet in the frypan with a brandy cream sauce!

    Maynard – Pigs wallow if allowed. I once had a holiday on a pig farm in Denmark, there was no mud and no smell!

    Baino – Save the recipe for the cooler days.

    Hubby is quite the cook so I think this one will show up on our table soon. It sounds delicious and not difficult to do. Thank you for sharing.
