Pork Loin Braised In Milk

Submitted by: GOTTABEMETHIN

Introduction

This is a recipe from an Italian cookbook and is meant for a dutch oven or other braising pot. I expect you could cook it in a crock pot by increasing the cook time and then only turn the meat once.

Ingredients

    1 Tbs butter
    2 Tbs vegetable oil
    2 lbs pork loin
    salt and pepper to taste
    2 1/2 cups whole milk

    optional:
    1 tsp fresh rosemary
    1 clove minced garlic

Directions

Put the butter and oil in a 3 1/2 quart Dutch oven over medium heat. Brown the meat evenly on all sides. Season the pork with salt and pepper (with other seasonings) and add 1 cup of milk. Turn the heat down to low, and cover the pot. Cook for 20 minutes turning several times. Add the remaining milk and continue cooking, turning the meat every 20 minutes. The roast is done in a total of 1 1/2 hours, or when the meat is fork tender.

Remove the pork loin from the pan and cut into thin slices. Return to the sauce that formed in the pan, heat, and serve right away.

  • This is the only way I cook pork! Difference: I add all the milk at once, allow the milk to come to a boil, turn the heat down, put the lid on, and let it cook for 1 1/2 hours. No need to turn it. The meat cooks evenly--"fall off the bone" tender. The "sauce" is nutty brown "kernels". Easy and YUMMY - 7/3/11
