I have my camera and my favorite person to cook for back.
And so you get,
The world waits with bated breath.
Or at least Mom and Big :o)
So here is yesterday's creation:
As I said before, I love pork tenderloin and am always on the
look out for new things to do with it.
This was great and really easy.
The hardest part was educating myself about Demi-Glace.
I happened to walk away from the TV as Claire
was explaining what it is and how you make it.
All I knew about it was somebody named
Escoffier had something to do with it and it takes a really
long time to make.
Oh, and that my FB friend Maggie had been interested in making it
So, at least I knew who to ask for recommendations
as to a good brand.
First good call.
Second good call?
Saying something to the sales person at Williams Sonoma
about how expensive this stuff was ( $29 for 10 oz)
and that my recipe calls for 2 cups of the stuff!
Uh, it's a concentrate.
A couple of tablespoon mixed with 2 cups of water should do it.
Can you imagine what I would have wound up with!?
So crisis averted.
And I am actually (actually) happy I discovered the stuff.
It has a really deep flavor and the package suggests
adding it to stews. That sounds fantastic.
Do NOT walk away from the television.
Keep someone smarter that you in your back pocket.
Talk to strangers and tell them everything you know.
Oh, and, Demi-Glace = good thing!
