Braised Pork with Juniper Berries

Braised Pork with Juniper Berries

Pan-seared and shallow braised in an aromatic sauce of white wine perfumed with juniper—the key flavoring component of gin—and rosemary.Andre Baranowski

Juniper berries and fresh herbs add aromatic appeal to pan-seared pork loin with potatoes and green beans. The recipe comes from chef Maria Luisa Scolastra at the historic inn Villa Roncalli in Foligno, Italy. It's a full-flavored partner for the area's famed and intense red wine, sagrantino. This recipe first appeared in our November 2014 issue with the story Taste of Umbria.
