Pork in Garlic Sauce

This is one of our family favorites. It is so easy and full of flavor and the best of all everyone eats it the kids and my husband.

I made this for my brother about 7 years ago and he just LOVED it. Thank goodness that I made a lot because everyone ate twice as much as I would have guessed; however, there were some leftovers for him to take to work. My brother, who works at a saw mill, got out his lunch and all the guys that he works with started drooling over his lunch sadly looking at their bologna sandwiches asking where he got that. Justin, my brother, just grinned and said my sister came to visit last night and then promptly informed everyone that I was taken.

so here it is Pork in Garlic Sauce

1 pound pork loin cut thin
1 cup flour for dusting
salt and pepper
vegetable oil

2 Tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 cup red wine
1/2 cup water or stock

Combine flour salt and pepper and dredge pork to lightly cover both sides with flour. In a hot frying pan add oil to about 1/4th of an inch, when oil is dancing in the hot pan gently lay floured pork into hot oil (oil should start to foam around the meat) and turn the heat down a little and cook about 2 minutes on each side until done. Fry all the pork and set aside. drain all but about 1 tablespoon of oil and return pan to heat, add the garlic, wine and water. reduce by half, sauce will get thick, lay the cooked pork into the sauce in the pan to reheat and coat meat with sauce and then serve on a platter covered in the sauce.

Oh Yum! I needed another quick and easy recipe for pork. We like pork in our household, but sometimes I run out of ways to fix it. Nice job!
