Today’s lunch is a bit different because it has its roots back home. Looks like a very usual Romanian Sunday lunch.
My family was asking for mashed potatoes so I was thinking to make something that reminds us our childhood, our mother’s or grandmother’s dishes.
I always cook Sunday more because I love to have some leftovers for Monday’s lunch, that’s why I have made 6 portions.
Ingredients ( 6 servings )
1 piece of boneless pork chop, cut in 12 slices
8 large white potatoes
20 large white mushrooms ( or 2 casseroles of 200 gr )
3 tbsp barbecue sauce
2 tbsp tomato sauce
100 ml white wine ( sauvignion blanc )
salt, black pepper, garlic powder
3 tbsp sour cream for the potatoes
extra virgin olive oil
Oil a glass tray with canola oil and place the pork chops. Season them with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Add 100 ml of wine and 100 ml of water.
Let them cool for 15 minutes while preheating the oven to 350 F. Bake them for about 40 minutes. After 20-30 minutes add the barbecue sauce mixed with a bit of water and bake for 10 more minutes.
Peel the potatoes and cut them in thin round pieces. Add them to a skillet and cover them with water. Add a bit of salt. Boil them until soft.
Meantime, peel the mushroom and place them in a small tray. Drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper and 2 tbsp tomato sauce. Toss lightly and bake them for 20 minutes.
When potatoes are soft, drain the water and mash them. Add the sour cream ( or butter if preferred ) a bit of salt if still needed and keep them coverd in the stove to keep them warm until the table is set up.
And if you have kids who hate mushrooms 🙂 you can enjoy the meal without them …
Bon Appetite !!!
