¼ teaspoon caraway seeds
¼ teaspoon coriander seeds
¼ teaspoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

Pickled Onions


Ingredients
½ cup Maine-ly Drizzle
Lemongrass Mint Balsamic Vinegar
¼ cup sugar
1 large red onion, thinly sliced

Preparation

Candied Balsamic Peaches
3 ripe peaches, skins removed and sliced thick
½ cup Maine-ly Drizzle Peach Balsamic Vinegar
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1 jalapeno, seeded and sliced

Place peaches in bowl. Bring vinegar and sugar to boil in sauce pan. Reduce heat to low and cook Maine-ly Drizzle Peach Balsamic Vinegar until syrup consistency is achieved. Pour hot syrup over peaches and stir to combine. Let peaches stand until they come to room temperature, stirring often. Place in sealed container and refrigerate overnight.

Red Curried Pork


Marinade Ingredients
3 ½ pounds pork shoulder blade, country style ribs
¼ up Maine-ly Drizzle Tunisian Harissa Olive Oil
¼ teaspoon coriander seeds
¼ teaspoon caraway seeds
¼ teaspoon cumin seeds
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon red curry paste

Dry pork thoroughly and set on sheet pan. Grind seeds in mortar and pestle and combine with crushed hot pepper flakes and curry paste. Rub Fustini’s Tunisian Harissa Olive Oil into pork ribs and then spread the red curry paste on, making sure to rub all portions of the ribs. Marinate pork overnight.

Remaining Ingredients
1 tablespoon Maine-ly Drizzle Persian Lime Olive Oil
1 jalapeno, seeded and sliced
1 medium onion, diced
1 Hungarian hot pepper, seeded and sliced
½ cup beef stock
½ cup orange juice
1 tablespoon red curry paste
1 teaspoon tomato paste
Fresh cilantro, chopped
1 package pit bread

Preparation


Heat Maine-ly Drizzle Persian Lime Olive Oil in large pan over high heat until just before smoking, and brown the ribs in batches. Remove browned ribs from the pan, reduce the heat, and add the jalapeno, onion, and Hungarian pepper and sauté until softened. Add the beef stock and orange juice and scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen any brown bits. Add the red curry paste and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low, place ribs back into pan, cover and cook for one hour, stirring once or twice. After one hour, tent pan and continue cooking until pork is tender, about one more hour. Remove pork from pan, and reduce sauce by half. Add tomato paste and stir well to combine. Cut pork into cubes, remove any fat and bone, and return to pan. Cook together for another half hour.

To Serve

Place pork on plate, surround with a dollop of Tunisian Pea and Peanut Salad, Pickled Onions and Candied Balsamic Peaches. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve with warmed pita bread.
