  1. Is there a brand recommended for the butter substitute? I went to my local whole foods and purchased earth balance…should i be looking for something else?

    • I changed the recipe so that you’re just using olive oil instead of the “butter substitute”. Olive oil is a perfect butter substitute in this situation, unless you do, in fact, eat butter.

    Can’t find caraway seeds…any substitute?

    The flavor of this dish is actually good. I did like what the coconut oil added to it. MY SUGGESTION: After browning the pork, remove it from the pan, and add it back with the red peppers. Cooking it as the recipe suggests, leaves the pork over cooked and dry.

  4. Just made this for dinner, I followed the recipe but used dry mushrooms since I couldn’t find them fresh. I used a little extra broth and my pork was quite thin but still stayed tender and delicious. The whole family LOVED it. My 7 year old daughter recognized the caraway flavor from her favorite rye bread so she was happy to have that. I will definately make this again very soon. It was so quick and easy that its just perfect for a weeknight meal. All cooking in one pan made for easy cleanup too.

    You can find caraway seeds in the Whole food market, they carry almost every spice if they don’t have it try Williams- Sonoma good luck.

    Surprisingly really good! I left out the caraway seeds and added smashed hot peppers instead for spice. Will add carrots or spinach next time.
