A Decadent but Simple Meal for Your Man



Game plan: Start with the pork (steps 1-7). It needs 30 minutes to come to room temp after you have dressed it. Next have guests work on the pie filling (step 1). Another group can start potatoes (step 1). After 30 minutes, come back to the pork, saute and put in oven (step 7-9; you can forget about the pork for 35 minutes). Next complete pie (steps 2-3); you will be working with the “prepped” pie because the one you made earlier will not likely be set. Prep asparagus (steps 2-3).

You’re at the home stretch now. The goal here is to get everything on the table hot. The timer for finishing the the asparagus and potatoes starts when the pork comes out. Take pork out, transfer to platter and tent with foil (be sure to turn oven up to 400 degrees for asparagus). Make mushroom sauce (step 11-12) and let sit. Put asparagus in oven. Finish potatoes (step 2-3).

Serve and enjoy! (Be sure not to forget the dessert!)
