Porc à l'Orange #recipe + book #giveaway from author @DarylWoodGerber


A Soufflé of Suspicion, the 2nd French Bistro Mystery came out last week! 
I'm so excited. Lots of readers are enjoying it.

A few reviews for your reading pleasure:

“Just as delicious as the first… When it comes to the word “appetizing” you automatically think of food. But when it comes to the literary scene, this series is well beyond appetizing. Not only are the foods incredible (make sure to check out the awesome recipes provided), but the characters and plot are equally superb.” ~ Suspense Magazine

From Daryl:

When it's PR "month," I share a few recipes I've included in the most recent book. Today is no exception.  I thoroughly enjoy this recipe. It has so many wonderful flavors. My particular favorite is the allspice, which gives the dish a kick. It has a lot of ingredients but not that many steps, so don’t panic. It’s easy to make.  Think of it like stroganoff with an orange twist. I’ve noted a few substitutions if you need to eat this gluten-free.

The sauce works for pork, chicken, white fish, too.  Any of the "white" meats. Enjoy!

Porc À L'Orange

(serves 6)

 cup flour (for GF * substitute potato starch)
teaspoon salt
teaspoon paprika
teaspoon white pepper
teaspoon allspice
pound pork tenderloin, sliced into 12 rounds and slightly flattened
tablespoons safflower oil
cup chicken stock (for GF * make sure gluten-free)
 cup sour cream
tablespoons orange juice
tablespoon orange rind, grated
teaspoon salt
 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
tablespoons orange liqueur
Wild rice or Arborio rice, 6 portions  (cook ahead or simultaneously)
Orange slices

In a small bowl, combine flour (or *gluten-free flour), salt, white pepper, paprika and allspice. Coat the rounds of tenderloin with the flour (or *gluten-free flour) mixture.

In a heavy skillet, heat the safflower oil over medium-high heat. When it’s hot, lay the pork medallions in the oil and brown pork well, about 4-5 minutes a side. This will spit!
Add the chicken stock (or *gluten-free chicken stock), cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small pan combine the sour cream, orange juice, orange rind, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and orange liqueur. By the way, orange rind is hard to measure. Figure about a half of an orange to equal one tablespoon. Over medium heat, bring the mixture to a low bubble, but do not boil. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat and set aside.

Turn off the pork and serve 2 slices of the pork over each portion of wild rice or Arborio rice. Drizzle 2-4 tablespoons of the orange sauce over the pork. Garnish with parsley and orange slices.



To one commenter, I'm giving you a choice of one of my backlist books. 
Plus some fun swag. Leave your email (cryptically if necessary). 
Tell me, what is your favorite white meat (or veggie if you're vegetarian) and how do you prepare it? I'll pick the winner Saturday.


Savor the mystery!

  1. I guess my favorite white meat would be chicken. And with a family of six I prepare it a lot and in many different ways. One of my favorites is a casserole called Rotel Chicken. Creamy, cheesy, and has a kick to it.

    1. Wendy, that sounds wonderful! Care to share the recipe? ~ Daryl

  2. Mine would be chicken, as there are many ways to fix it.

    1. Deb, I've found that almost any way I prepare chicken, I can prepare pork. Chicken is a bit more moist, depending. They're quite versatile. :) ~ Daryl

  3. My favorite white meat is chicken or turkey. Love it with roasted veggies. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

  4. My preference is chicken and there are many ways I enjoy preparing this meal. Chicken cacciatore, chicken parmesan and chicken with rice. elliotbencan(at)hotmail(dot)com
