How to Make Milk-Braised Pork with Garlic and Onion Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. MAKE THE ROAST
    Preheat oven to 350ºF.
    Season roast all over with salt and pepper. Put meat in a small roasting pan with garlic, butter and bay leaf. Pour in enough milk to almost cover meat, about 3/4 way up the side of the roast.
  2. Place pan in preheated oven. Periodically, as meat sticking out of milk browns, turn meat to submerge the brown part. Continue until all surface of meat is browned. Cook until internal temp reaches 150ºF, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  3. Transfer roast to a cutting board. Cover and let rest and make onion sauce.
  4. MAKE THE SAUCE
    Melt butter in small skillet over medium-high heat.Add onions and sauté until golden, about 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat.
  5. Measure out and pour milk from roasting pan into the onions to measure 2 cups (add extra milk if needed). In a small bowl, mix cornstarch, water and nutmeg then stir into milk. Bring milk almost to a boil and continue stirring until milk thickens somewhat, about 5 minutes.
  6. SERVING
    Slice pork put on serving platter. Ladle some of sauce over pork and serve with extra sauce on the side.
