Method of Preparation

  6. Peel mushrooms and remove stalks.
  7. Make a paste with arrowroot and 2 tablespoons water.

Method of Cookery

  1. Season chops and fry in clarified butter.
  2. Add sliced onion and crushed garlic. Brown.
  3. Add watered down sauce and bay leaves.
  4. Bake in uncovered casserole for 1 hour at 325°F.
  5. Add mushrooms shallow fried in butter.

This is a very spicy dish and needs bland accompaniments. I suggest plain Boiled Rice and plain cooked peas. Serve a really extrovert dry red wine.
