I’d mentioned Chicken Marbella fondly in my posting about an updated recipe for Beef Stroganoff, and a couple of days later, what did I find? A recipe for a revised version of the dish, using pork loin instead of chicken.
If I were the least bit paranoid, I’d suspect the editors of Bon Appétit of monitoring my blog. (I already know about the bugged phone and the intercepted mail, and I’m reasonably sure that the woman down the hall is on their payroll. Why won’t they leave me alone?)
Anyhow, I made it, and it tasted great. It needs an overnight marinade, but once that’s done, you can cook and serve the Pork Marbella in under an hour.
★ Disaster. Inedible. Poisoned the cat.
★★ OK, but once is enough.
★★★ Mixed results. Something went wrong, but might try this again.
★★★★ Good, but lacks that special something.
★★★★★ Excellent. Goes into my “This is a winner” file.
