Pork Shank Dinner


This dinner is a hearty, epicurean delight. It opens with classic Spanakopita, handmade and loaded with spinach and Feta cheese. The star of the meal is a rich Braised Pork Shank, slow cooked in a mushroom sauce and finished with veal stock and white wine. The pork falls off the bone, and the sauce is a savory delight. It's paired with a Vegetable Potato Medley, featuring asparagus, green beans, and mushrooms. Dessert is a classic Chocolate Crème Swirl Cake. You'll savor every bite. Serves 4.
