Ukrainian Braised Pork Recipe

Pork is always delicious and this Ukrainian recipe is another favorite whenever it is served. Serves four to six.

2 to 2-1/2 lbs. boneless pork loin
2 T. butter or margarine
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. black pepper
2 medium yellow onions, sliced
1 T. caraway seeds
1 cup beef stock
1/2 cup sour cream

Step 1. Remove all excess fat from pork. In heavy pot or Dutch oven,  heat butter over medium heat until foaming. Add pork and brown on all sides. Add salt and pepper.

Step 2. To pot, add onions, caraway seeds and stock; cover, reduce heat and simmer gently 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until meat is fork tender. Remove meat to plate and cool slightly. Cut in slices.

Step 3. Turn heat up under sauce and boil rapidly until reduced to about 2/3 cup. Return sliced meat to pot and simmer about 10 minutes.

Step 4. Just before serving, remove meat from pot with slotted spoon and place in serving dish. Add sour cream to sauce in pot and whisk thoroughly. Reheat sauce, but do not boil. Pour sauce over meat and serve with potatoes or noodles.
