Web Chef Review: Rancourt Winery 2012 Malbec - cookingwithkimberly.comYou will notice me using Rancourt Winery 2012 Malbec in this recipe. Malbec is quite a rare grape here in the Niagara Region – in all of Canada for that matter, and Rancourt Winery produces a wonderful single varietal nicknamed the Watermelon Jolly Rancher, as it has a flavor reminiscent of these sweet & tart candies, as well of berries & currants with a hint of pepper.

The ingredients & instructions are listed below the video for measurements & directions. Please enjoy this webisode of Cooking with Kimberly:


  • Note: for the braising liquid you can use red wine, water or any stock you desire.


  1. Preheat your frying pan with olive oil, so the oil is dancing before you place the meat in it. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Season pork breast bones generously with freshly cracked pepper, smoked sea salt & paprika, and press the seasonings into the meat.
  3. Flip the pork breast bones over & generously season the other side. Press seasonings into the meat.
  4. 14 Inch Aluminum Frying Pan - shop.cookingwithkimberly.comWhen frying pan is sizzling hot, brown pork breast bones on both sides. You will likely have to brown this meat in two batches, or three. Once you start browning, do not disturb the meat too much, so you get a nice, deep, brown color on each side. This could take 10 – 15 min per side.
  5. Into the greased braising pan, add the following: whole cloves, bay leaf, mustard seeds, chili flakes & herbs.
  6. Remove pork breast bones from frying pan, once well browned, and place into the oven-safe braising pan with fatty sides up.
  7. spilled wineStrain most of the fat out of the frying pan, leaving the brown bits in the pan. Deglaze pan with 1/2 cup of the red wine. Save the rendered fat and set aside, for other uses.
  8. Scrape any brown bits from the bottom of the pan, into the wine mixture and heat it up well.
  9. Carefully, pour deglazed liquid into the braising pan, making certain that you don’t moisten the tops of the meat.
  10. Granny Smith Apple - cookingwithkimberly.comScatter apple wedges throughout the pan.
  11. Add another 1/4 cup of red wine into the braising liquid in the pan.
  12. Add to the braising liquid, enough water to bring the liquid to a depth of 1 inch.
    • Note: From time to time, you will need to check to make sure there is still some braising liquid in the pan. If it is too low, or gone, add enough water, wine, or stock, so the meat does not dry out.
  13. Cover & seal the braising pan, and allow to braise for 1 hr. Check to make sure there is enough liquid in the pan.
  14. aluminum foil - shop.cookingwithkimberly.comRe-cover and return to oven for another 45 min, at least.
  15. Remove from oven & test meat for doneness. Meat should easily separate from cartilage & bones. I find that the meat needs to braise for another 30 – 35 min, covered.
  16. Remove from oven. Pour about 3 tbsp of Napa Valley Bordeaux Cherry Balsamic Vinegar into a small bowl. Using a pastry brush, apply two layers of the Bordeaux Cherry Balsamic Vinegar glaze to the pork breast bones.
  17. Return meat to oven, uncovered, on convection heat at 350 degrees F, and allow glaze to caramelize on the pork for 5 – 10 min.
  18. Apply another layer of the glaze, and return to oven again for another 5 – 10 min.
