Sausage & Pepper Ragu
Our salesman, Mark, made Sausage & Pepper Ragu for the office today. He made this delicious masterpiece with one of our loyal customer's sausages!
Our international partners stopped in to tour our plant and use our Test Kitchen. They showed us how to make a popular Japanese Pork Dish.
They began with a whole boneless loin.
They sliced them into Pork Chops
First, they were gently tossed in flour.
Next, dipped in a traditional batter.
They were then tossed in Japanese bread crumbs, called Panko.
Lastly, they were deep fried.
Look at the beautiful, crispy, golden color that they made.
