Hearty Pork Stew - This amazing stew has tender chunks of pork, carrots, and potatoes all enveloped in a rich white wine broth. It is the BEST pork stew you will ever eat!!
Oh, my Gawwwd! This stew! People!!
Say it with me...Hearty Pork Stew.
This may just be the one meal I will eat every day for the rest of my life!
Orrrr maybe I am just uber excited about it and am rambling like a crazy woman.
Let's not speculate on that one OK?
Let's just focus on that there bowl of rich, dreamy, porky goodness ? #bestillmyheart
It is soup weather here and usually, I start off my soup obsession fix with a big ol' steaming bowl of beef stew, It is hearty, and warming, and just screams "Happy fall y'all" to me.
One of the things I love about my beef stew recipe is, I use an entire bottle of red wine.
Have I mentioned I love wine?
Just a couple of times right?
But I had pork shoulder in my freezer, so pork stew it was going to be!
Now, the beef stew has red wine. So it only seemed logical that I use an entire bottle of white wine in the pork stew, right?
Of course right!
OK, the recipe is written and off to the store I go to grab a few things I needed, and I am standing in the wine area wondering what white wine to use.
I know what I like to drink, and normally you should use a wine you enjoy the flavor of because cooking with it will concentrate the flavor. But I realized that my favorite white wine, a pinot grigio, would not be complementary to the flavors in the recipe. It is lighter and fruitier than I wanted. So I start looking through the chardonnays.
I knew I wanted a good one, the problem? I am not a huge chardonnay fan so I really don't know much about them. Lucky for me my favorite wine guy was there and he pointed me in the direction of Kendal Jackson. He said it was one of the top-selling chardonnays and it was not that expensive. I took his word and bought two bottles, one for the stew one for me
Hey, the cooks gotta have fun too!
I was suuuper stoked with how the stew came out for a first try recipe. Everyone was tasting the broth before it was ready and the chorus of yummmm, mmmmmmm, WOW this is good, made me a very happy camper.
Now I have made it approx 567,897,890,456 times, and have several bags of it in my freezer, and two stew recipes to look forward to every fall!
Break out the hoodies, your fuzzy slippers on, and make a BIG batch of this stew!
