Cajun Spices:
Smother Gravy:


In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, pour enough oil to fill the pan about a third of the way.

Heat over medium heat until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil reaches 360 degrees F.

Season the pork with the Cajun spices, according to your taste. Season the flour with salt and pepper. Whisk the eggs until foamy and add water.

Prepare the pork by dredging in the flour, then dipping in the egg wash, then back in the flour again. Fry the pork in batches, until crust is golden, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels to remove any excess oil. Serve with Smother Gravy and garnish with scallions.

Cajun Spices:

Mix well. Store in glass or plastic container with lid.

Yield: about 1 1/2 cups

Smother Gravy:

In a heavy bottom saucepan melt the butter over medium heat, add the onions, and cook for 1 minute before adding the red pepper, celery, carrots, garlic, and the thyme. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes, until vegetables are tender.

Turn the heat up to medium and add the Cajun spices and flour. Stirring constantly, saute until you can smell the spices and the flour starts to get a little golden.

Pour the chicken stock into the pan while stirring constantly with a whisk. The gravy will start to thicken as it comes to a boil. Add the Worcestershire and reduce the heat to low to prevent the gravy from burning. Allow the gravy to simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Yield: 4 cups
