How to Make and Spell Amandine Garnish

 Could you please give me a recipe for roast pork almond ding?

 Almond ding? Are you using your spell checker again? It, at least, should show almondine, which is really bastardization of the French word amandine, meaning "garnished with almonds."

The garnish couldn't be simpler. Melt 1/4 cup of butter. Add 1/4 cup of blanched, slivered almonds and stir over low heat until lightly browned. Salt, as necessary.

There are a number of recipes online that combine pork in some form with almonds in some form. We didn't find any that looked particularly inspiring, so found a better one the old-fashioned way – we searched through a lot of cookbooks. Technically this Almond-Crusted Pork Loin does not meet the requirements of a pork dish that is simply garnished with an almond-butter mixture, but if you insist, you can cook pork chops, a pork roast, or pork in any other form, add the garnish spelled out in the paragraph above, and voilà, you have pork amandine, almondine, or almond ding!
