Broad Beans With Prosciutto recipe
posted by Howard Leech @ 03:51AM, 7/08/08
Where I am working at present, Prosciutto is difficult to find.
However, I substituted this with a thick piece of smoked bacon cut into chunks and cooked with the olive oil, garlic and onion.
The thick smoked bacon has to be cooked a little longer
As per the recipe I then added the chicken stock and the braod beans.
The result was extraordinary and I repeated this receipe again but for guests.
Again, everyone commented on how god this dish was.
