MAIN COURSE

KATRINPLONNON STACKAD SLASKKARRE (Pork Loin Larded with Prunes), Swedish

Ingredients
  • 2 ¾ Ibs. pork loin
  • 1 tbsp, butter
  • ½ tab. pepper
  • Prune juice
  • ¼ tab. ginger
  • Boiling water
  • 1 tbsp, salt
  • Gravy: pan juice
  • 6 to 8 prunes, partially cooked, pitted
  • ¾ tbsp. flour
Preparation Instructions

Wipe meat with damp cloth, remove excess fat and lard the surface in even rows with halves of prunes. Insert the fruit as deeply as possible into the meat. Rub meat with mixed seasonings and soon on all sides, baste with a little prune juice, cover and braise slowly about 2 hours. Baste with juice and water several times while cooking.

Cut the meat away from the bone in one piece; slice and place slices back on the bone. Skim the pan juice and thicken with the flour stirred to a paste with cold water. Serve with browned potatoes, peas, apple sauce, stewed prunes and gravy. Serves 6.

Hint: To give added flavor to the gravy, cook with the meat 1 stalk celery, cut in pieces, 1 small carrot, cubed, and 1 yellow onion, sliced.
