I’m a busy mom who loves easy meals. I love home cooked food that’s delicious and nutritious, too.

That’s why I love cooking with my slow cooker and braising meat in milk.

When I first heard about braising meats in milk, I was intrigued. I learned that this a very popular way to cook in Italy. Once I tried it for myself, it is the only way I’ll ever braise meats, especially pork and chicken, now. And the only milk I cook with is DailyPure milk.

When I have the time or using thinner cuts of meat, I braise in a pan on the cooktop, but most days I’m too busy and use my crock pot.

When you braise meat in milk you get a richer, more tender meat with a slight sweetness from the milk. I find meats to be more aromatic when braised in milk, too.

Why DairyPure Milk?

I use DairyPure milk because it’s the only milk backed by an exclusive Five-Point Purity Promise. DairyPure milk contains no artificial growth hormones and it’s tested for antibiotics. In fact, it is continually quality tested to ensure purity, and only comes from cows fed a healthy diet that is then cold shipped from your trusted dairy.

DairyPure milk is pure love #DairyPureMilk

You can find DairyPure in the dairy case at your local grocery stores in either whole, 2% reduced fat, 1% low fat, and skim/fat-free milk.

You can drizzle the milk mixture over the pork loin as is, or take the liquid and add it to a saucepan with a little flour to thicken for a creamier sauce.

I made mashed potatoes (using DairyPure) and roasted brussels sprouts, along with a glass of DairyPure 2% milk to go with my braised pork loin but you can make whatever your favorite sides are to go with it. My family loved the pork loin and I’ll be making it often.
