    This stew would taste good over a shoe! No creme fraiche in Italy, so I used fresh local toma cheese instead, kind of like ricotta but more of a tang.

    Take the pork out, blend the veg together with the milk and the sage, pass trough a sieve and reduce down to required consistency. Smoother, more clean sauce.

    Made this for the 5th time today in my Instapot. As always, a real hit. This time I did check out CJ’s other pork stew videos and taking a cue from them, I added a squirt of tamarind when I was thickening the sauce. CJ has used apple cider vinegar but since I didn’t have that handy I went with tamarind. It really elevated the dish to another level. I also took out nearly 1/2 cup of pork fat after I’d browned the pork and bacon. I noticed that there wasn’t too much fat in the video after this stage, which has never been the case every time I have made this dish. And I don’t even use the olive oil to get the bacon rendering started. The net result was that the dish was a lot less greasy. I have nothing against pork fat, and I intent to use that 1/2 cup very productively (mayo?), but too much fat overwhelmed the dish the last few times. This time it looks even better.
    Thanks Chef John. It isn’t fall yet but that has never stopped me from making a good pork stew.

    If you use this technique, but change out the flavor profile for one based upon smoked green chiles and powdered Ancho and carmelized onions, this recipe is a very traditional South Texas green pork chili.

  • maserin1

    I made this yesterday and the flavor is amazing, but my meat came out tough because I cut up the chunks too small and tried to crowd too many of them into the same pan for the browning step. Learn from my mistake: despite what the good Chef says, the size definitely *does* matter! Keep the chunks of pork large enough so that they don't cook through the middle during searing, and don't crowd the pan or else the juices from the meat won't be able to quickly evaporate, the meat won't brown, and you'll end up with tough pork no matter how low and slow you cook it afterward in your luxurious latte sauce :(

  • FlyBaby

    This was delicious! I made the Polenta to go with it. I botched mine and had to take steps to fix it. My cubed meat was smaller so after browning and starting to simmer in a Lodge 13.5" cast iron pan the lowest setting non the electric range would result in a fast simmer and tough meat. I switched the stew into the crock pot and let it work its magic at tenderizing the already hard meat. After 2 hours the meat was nearly falling apart and the sauce had seemingly reduced a bit. Everybody was very happy with the results but this is more of a Sunday dinner than a weekday meal.

    Food Wishes is by far the best cooking channel on TVclip or anywhere else. I love that it doesn't spend any time focused on a talking head. It's straight to the recipe. the only thing I could ask for is serving suggestions. I struggled desperately to figure out what pairs up with some of these meals. what vegetable dish would make this a balanced meal. maybe that could be a whole different Allrecipes production line.

  • Shahrdad

    I made this recipe, along with the polenta, and at first I wasn't so sure. It smelled super garlicy, and after 1 1/2 hours of cooking, the meat still didn't feel or smell "done." So I put the whole thing in my 4 quart short pressure cooker, brought it up to pressure, and cooked it for 25 minutes while I made the polenta. That did the trick. I think this needs a good three hours of cooking time until the meat is really tender and the flavors all meld together. Of course, the pressure cooker did the same thing in a half hour. I took a LOT of grease off the top, and the food was still very rich, but not overly so. When served on polenta, it was truly as good as anything you get in a fancy restaurant.
    Next time, I think I'm going to pour all the juice into a grease separator, and then add the degreased liquid back to the meat and reduce. But with just degreasing with a ladle and dumping it into a separator (so that I could pour the juice back in) also worked wonderfully.
    Thank you Chef John!!

      That dear, is a "Le Creuset" enameled "braiser". If you go to their website and select "braisers", you find different sizes and colors. You could also opt for a "dutch oven" which are deeper, serve the same purpose however, can be used for other types of dishes as well. Hope that helps!
