It’s been four weeks of pork here in the Vanderbilt household! We have had more fun with this campaign than I ever expected. For four weeks, we’ve cooked a giant meal with two pork entrees and fed our friends.
Last night, our friends L and C offered to have us to their apartment instead so I didn’t have to clean. What a blessing! Especially since I think I made a new record number of dirty dishes preparing the meal.
The beer-braised cutlets won the vote 3 to 1 on which pork was the favorite. I love dill anything – pickles, potato salad, etc – and the dill in this really made it. It isn’t the prettiest dish ever (especially in my old, stained Corningware), but the taste was excellent – especially alongside L’s lovely wilted slaw with celery seed. It all made my German tastebuds very happy.
Mr. V did like the Cranberry-Balsamic Cutlets better, though. They are even less pretty than the beer-braised ones, but very tender and tasty. I could drink balsamic vinegar, so anything with it usually makes me happy.
The theme for this week was Healthy Comfort Foods, and I believe both of these dishes certainly fit that bill. They are hearty and flavorful without being deep-fried or highly caloric.
