Milk fed pork in milk
Obviously, if you’re Jewish or Muslim or vegetarian, this recipe idea is not for you. But, if you’re not, Gilmor farms has just finished their milk fed pork (also fed non-gmo non-corn non-soy grain) and you can buy it for $5 per pound. Just a suggestion. This Italian dish arose out of the need for cooking those huge pigs bred for salami and sausage making whose tough flesh required something to soften its texture and flavor during cooking. When applied to the high-end pigs of Gilmor farms, well… you should definitely portion control. Ingredients 3 tablespoons butter 2 onions, finely chopped 2 lb pork loin, in 1 piece salt and freshly ground pepper 2 cups milk 1 cup heavy cream Directions In a high-sided terracotta pot over low heat, combine the butter and onions. Cook until the onion colors. Add the pork, sprinkle with salt and pepper and brown, turning several times. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. When the meat is well browned pour in the milk and cream and mix. Cover the pan and transfer it to the oven and bake for about 1 hour. Check the cooking from time to time and turn the pork.
