Pick Up the Pieces

I did a nice quick pan gravy for these pork chops using some of that fresh sage and rosemary. Excellent little weeknight bonus!

That's a nice little bonus tip to remember. When I'm frying up something in the pan and I see all those little caramelized bits and pieces, its almost a sin to just wash those away. Better to sprinkle a big tablespoon of flour over it all, allow that to cook for just a few minutes. Throw some cold water, stock, beer or wine into the pan, fresh herbs if you have them and a little salt and pepper, scrape the bottom and heat.... instant rich tasty gravy. I got fancy and put mine through a sieve but its not necessary.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
