    Irishcolleen's Note:

    Here in South Louisiana, we "smother" just about everything. No, we don't put a blanket or something over our food to "smother" it! We just keep the cover of the pot almost all the way on. It's best cooked in a heavy, seasoned cast iron dutch oven, which is a must have, in my opinion. The meat is cooked in a natural gravy. I personally like my food on the spicy side. It's "fall off the bone" tender! So, put a pot of rice on! :)

      I am surprised this doesn't have more reviews. I think it's absolutely lovely. I've made it with chicken and pork, good with both! There are a lot of things I've made and would never bother again, this is not one of them :)

      I am just learning to get down and dirty in the kitchen. I pulled this up at work and at the last minute decided to try it. It came out fantastic. My boyfriend was very pleased!

      Even though I forgot to add the mushrooms and parsley this was delicious. I had thick loin chops in the freezer so thats what I used and they came out lovely and tender. The seasoning and veggies were great too and I just used them as the side veg tonight. I would happily make this recipe again.
