Recipes from America's Greatest New Cooks

Milk-Braised Pork Chops by Jimmy Bannos, Jr.

Brings bright, Mediterranean flavors to his daring, pork-centric dishes.

Braising pork in milk, a method that Jimmy Bannos, Jr., of Chicago’s The Purple Pig learned while cooking in Florence, results in super-tender meat and an incredibly rich and flavorful gravy. Although the dish is rooted in Tuscan tradition, Bannos adds an American comfort-food spin by serving it with mashed potatoes.
