So far this weekend, we been celebrating some of the autumn flavors, apple, root vegetables, and cider.
For Friday night, I made BBC Goodfood’s Slow-braised pork shoulder with parsnips and cider and smashed red-skinned potatoes. The recipe can be found here. I use the BBC Goodfood‘s site for many recipes and usually find success. I also occasionally pick up the magazine.
This was a perfect autumn dish, the slow braise infused the meat and veg with the apple cider flavor. I used Angry Orchard traditional dry cider in the recipe. I gave up doing my own food photography, this image is from BBC Goodfood’s website.
Today, I picked up some root veg: swede (rutabaga), carrots, and parsnips. I also had half of a head of red cabbage in the fridge that needed using up. I love all the autumn flavors. The meal I put together from all this was:
- Chicken roasted in the oven
- Tossed the root veg in olive oil and salt and pepper and roasted them in the oven
- Chopped the red cabbage, thinly sliced a red onion, peeled and sliced a couple apples I found in the fridge and then added 2 tablespoons of whole berry cranberry sauce. Sweated the onion and apple and then added everything else to the pan, popped the lid on, and let it cook slowly.
Lovely dinner with a bottle of red, probably should have been white, but I prefer red:)
