Pork With Creamy Bacon Fennel Sauce
Hi, and welcome to Foodie Friday! See my GIVEAWAY right below! This recipe is a REAl keeper! This pork recipe is one my husband keeps asking for! The cream, fennel, bacon, and lemon juice mixed together make a memorable sauce. It's easy to make and would be a great "go to" meal for company. This recipe has been slightly adapted from Michelle the author of the blog "Ya Get What Ya Get." When I saw this on her blog, I new I would be making this soon! This blogger has just given birth to a new little boy! I thank her for this recipe because we will be making this for years!

Recipe for Pork With Creamy Fennel and Bacon Sauce
4-6 boneless pork chops -- I use pork sirloin.
1/2 cup flour
Dash salt and freshly ground pepper
4 tablespoons olive oil
6 slices of bacon
2 tablespoons fennel seeds chopped and minced--Use dried fennel found in the spice aisle.
1 small onion, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup whipping cream --Just straight from the box.
Trim fat from meat. Tenderize meat with a meat mallot. In a shallow bowl combine flour and a dash of salt and freshly ground pepper; coat pork with mixture. In a large skillet, cook pork in hot olive oil. When cooked and browned; remove from skillet. In the same skillet, cook bacon until crisp or near crisp. When bacon is cooked, cut into small pieces. You can also leave them in larger pieces like I did. Add fennel, onion, and garlic. Cook a few minutes longer. Add lemon juice, then stir in whipping cream. Bring to slight boil, and return meat to pan. Cook sauce util it has begun to thicken and quickly remove pork and spoon sauce over meat.
