We have garden tomatoes like crazy right now and this was a good recipe to use. I could not find whole-wheat Israeli couscous (not even at Whole Paycheck!) so used regular. I accidentally simmered at too high of heat and it stuck to the bottom of the pan but tasted just fine (be sure to watch it closely). The pork for me took longer because we had thicker cuts. I seared one side for 10 minutes then added the veggies/tomatoes for the last 5 minutes and simmered in the wine and stock to finish cooking. Fabulous. Hubby asked for this again soon. Will add it to the regular rotation.
I made this last night for our family and it was delicious! 3 of the 4 of us liked it. It may be more popular at my house with chicken. Some tips: (1) The pork chops I used took longer to cook than stated in the recipe, so I needed to add extra wine & chicken stock to keep things moist. (2) I'm not a huge meat fan, so I added whole baby portabella mushrooms to the pan (with the pork & sauce) in the last few minutes. They were fabulous! (3) Chop & measure everything before you start cooking. It will make the process SO much easier. (4) The couscous was done before the pork, so be sure to pull it off the heat and keep the lid on.Read More
