French Beef/Pork Recipes (Most Popular)
A whole leg of lamb (bone and all) goes into the pot with your standard veggies, lots of garlic, most of the spice cabinet, dried fruit and a whole bottle of wine! Two and a half hours later it's velvety soft and begging to be spooned over your favourite rice or grain.Submitted by JO_JO_BA
In our travels through the Normandy area of France, we discovered the French style of hard apple cider -- very different from the American version. It's a little sweeter than the American version and comes in dry or semi-dry versions. This recipe was inspired by a fantastic dinner I had in Bayeux, although I've substituted boneless pork chops for the French-style bone-in chops to cut down on the fat. If you can find a French hard cider, give it a try. For this recipe, I used a dry British hard cider that I found at Trader Joe's and it is very similar in taste and texture to those we tasted in Normandy. For drinking purposes, make sure to serve it well chilled first!
You can substitute a pear for the apple for a slightly different, sweeter result. The picture shows this dish served with my roasted green beans and slices of baguette topped with a 1/2 slice of pear and a dot of chevre then toasted.
