“Not at all authentic--but delicious, filling, and easy! It's a wonderful dinner to come home to on a chilly winter's night; all you need is a crusty loaf of bread, a green salad, and some nicely-aged cheese and you'll have a wonderful, rustic meal. You can use pork--in fact, pork is standard in cassoulet--but as we don't eat pork, I have used other meats. Feel free to substitute other meats as desired; sausage, bacon, and ham would all be good, and I've used lamb loin chops with great success, too.”
