Coq au porc

A one-ish pot meal, easy to throw together and warm for the cooling weather. But really the rice is the star here. I’ll have to try with dry rubs or marinades for the meat for the next time.

Ingredients
4 coq-au-porc (about 300g per)
2 granny smith apples, diced
12 dried apricots, diced
2″ fresh ginger
2 onions
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cup to 1 1/2 cup unfiltered apple juice
1 table spoon moutarde de meaux
1 1/2 cup rice
olive oil
salt and pepper
ingredients

1. Pre-heat the oven to 375F. Season the coq-au-porc with salt and pepper. Put a bit of olive oil in a stainless steel pan and sear the meat on all sides.

2. Once all the meat is seared, set aside. Swap the stainless steel pan for a large cast iron dutch oven. Put a bit of olive oil at the bottom and set the heat to medium-low, allowing the casserole dish to warm up.
