Season the pork with loads of paprika a little cayenne pepper and salt

Melt the butter - fry the onion and pepper

Pour in the brandy, stir in the djion, add the cream and on high heat cook for 2 mins more with more spices,

Serve on a bed of stick fries ( chips here in the UK ) or wild rice...

crack open some vodka, and dah dah...

( the wife does a little dance when i tell her we're having this cos she likes it soo much )


You can serve on a bed of sliced spiced potatoes

Just peel some potatoes, slice them into 1 cm thick slices. Lay them out in a pan ( yes raw like this ) sprinkle with loads of paprika, put in the oven on a high temp 220 degrees, pour over a little oil to start and bung in the oven for about 20- 25 mins

Hi steelers gal,

Yeah you can make it hot too with the cayenne pepper to have a real kick. Just cos it's Eastern bloc food doesn't mean it's bland at all.

LOL a "knob" is as much as you want to put in. Basically enough to cook the onions and peppers in. What your short of i add some olive oil to top up.

What, Precisely, Is a Knob of Butter? http://www.ochef.com/images/Q.gif How much is a "knob of butter?"

http://www.ochef.com/images/A.gif How much do you want it to be? Certainly more than a dash, and well more than a pinch neither of which seems the best way to measure butter, in any event.
A knob of butter is a British term denoting some butter, and its use is sadly declining as zealous editors force more precision and science into our recipes and cookbooks. Even the loosest British cooks (and we mean that in the nice way) might get away with telling you to add a knob of butter on a television program. But if their cookbooks are published in the States, you can bet someone will have translated all those knobs into precise measurements.

:haha: Just had to look it up
