I wasn't so sure about this one, but decided to give it a go anyway. I made a quarter of the recipe in my mini loaf pan, but I think I added too much fruit, as it turned out more lumpy than smooth. This was pretty though, and tasty. Glad I gave it a shot!

After a long time away I am finally back on the French Fridays with Dorie bandwagon - thank goodness! I don't believe I have ever cooked anything with Lemongrass before, it smells wonderful! This recipe took some time to make, but was simple enough. And most importantly, it tastes great =) I loved the onion in this, I definitely think that vegetables work well with the pork; I used onions and carrots. I did not have cardamom or coriander seeds and so was forced by my own thriftyness to use the ground spices that I did have. I can only imagine that using the seeds would have made the dish that much better.

...were not made in my kitchen. Oops. I've been a BAD French Fridays with Dorier, and have missed the following four weeks: Week 38: Mozzarella, Tomato and Strawberrry Salad Week 39: Chunky Beets and Icy Red Onions Week 40: Salmon and Tomatoes en Papillote Week 41: Cold Melon-Berry Soup I don't even have any excuses, at least none that are any good! I did make Warm Weather Vegetable Pot au Feu for a second time though, does that give me any points? A point? But I'm jumping back on the train I tell you, I will cook more French food - and I will cook it this week!
