FFWD Week #42: Coconut-Lemongrass-Braised Pork

After a long time away I am finally back on the French Fridays with Dorie bandwagon - thank goodness! I don't believe I have ever cooked anything with Lemongrass before, it smells wonderful! This recipe took some time to make, but was simple enough. And most importantly, it tastes great =) I loved the onion in this, I definitely think that vegetables work well with the pork; I used onions and carrots. I did not have cardamom or coriander seeds and so was forced by my own thriftyness to use the ground spices that I did have. I can only imagine that using the seeds would have made the dish that much better.


  1. Welcome back.
    I agree - there is something about lemon grass that is pretty awesome (I had to wonder where the lemongrass has been hiding all these years...)

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed it! We sure did. It's so good to have you back with us, Monica!

  3. That loaf of bread in the picture looks perfect to sop up the great broth. Thriftiness is not a bad thing, especially in these crazy times!

  4. Nice photo. I like how you numbered the weeks of your cooking. Good recipe to start back with, huh? I only just joined in June and I am thoroughly enjoying myself! When do suppose we vote on August's recipes? We didn't vote for July's either. Hmmm.


Thanks so much for your comments, I love reading each one!!
