Perfect Chicken Liver Gravy

I love gravy. Here’s my new favorite chicken gravy recipe. It’s really simple:

2 14 oz. cans chicken stock
1/2 cup Riesling wine
6 oz. chicken livers
1/2 small white onion, finely minced
4 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. chili powder
Salt & pepper to taste

Add all ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced to half. Remove chicken livers and dice them. Return them to the gravy. If you want to thicken it more, just stir in some corn starch slurry.

I know what you’re thinking: “Riesling?” The sweetness from the wine adds a wonderful balance to the savory from the meat flavors. It’s delicious.

Spicy Mango Pork Tenderloin

Here’s a deceptively easy to prepare piece of pork that results in beautifully robust and layered flavors.

1 Pork Loin Tenderloin
1 strip of bacon
2 14.5 oz. can chicken stock
1 c. mango juice
1 c. dry white wine
1 med. onion, sliced
1 carrot, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
2 jalapenos, diced
1/4 c. frozen diced mangos
2 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. dried parsley
Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 325ยบ. Add all ingredients to a dutch oven pot and cook for 1-1/2 hours. Remove tenderloin and let sit for 5 minutes. Slice & serve with vegetables.

The juices can be used for an amazing tangy gravy. Just add 1/2 cup of chicken broth for every cup of juice and 2 tbsp. butter. Reduce over high heat until it begins to thicken. You can add cornstarch at the end to achieve an even thicker consistency if desired.
