Cooking with liqueur adds a touch of elegance to your dish without adding complicated steps. Liqueur can add a distinctive flavor without making you tipsy, since the alcohol cooks off.
Pork and orange liqueur recipe
- Pork cutlets or tenderloin, 2 servings
- Cayenne pepper
- 1/2 c. chicken broth
- 1/4 c. orange liqueur
- Orange zest
Cut pork into strips and season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Heat 1-2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a skillet. Add pork and cook for 5-8 minutes, until almost done. In a small sauce pan, bring chicken broth and orange liqueur to a boil. Pour over pork and cook for another 5 minutes. Just before serving, add a splash of the liqueur to reinforce the flavor and top with orange zest.
If you don't drink liqueur, don't cook with it as you won't enjoy the flavor. To experience the flavor without the cost, consider buying miniature bottles of a particular liqueur and experimenting.
