Directions:
Slice pork sholder into 1/4 inch slices. Using an iron frying pan cook the pork in its own fat till brown, turning once. Remove meat to platter and add coffee to drippings, stirring to blend, cook until it is a little thickened. This will be a small amount, not a bowl, of gravy. For a pound of meat you might use a cup of coffee, cooked down to less.

Personal Notes:
My uncle Vanice gave me this recipe for this book. He grew up during the depression and remembers that this gravy was always made with freshly slaughtered pork. The fat left in the pan was not to be wasted. The energy and flavor were needed by hard working people. Mary Bilan
