This comforting pork stew recipe is precisely the form of homey dish you lot desire waiting for you lot afterwards a long, difficult week…and mayhap a 13-hour drive. Unfortunately, I made this final week, thence I couldn’t genuinely savor it today, afterwards a long, difficult calendar week in addition to 13-hour drive, but only editing it made me experience better. It was that good.
This stew version is inspired past times the classic Italian recipe, “maiale al latte,” or “pork inward milk,” but instead of the park moo juice, I decided to brand my ain amongst chicken broth in addition to crème fraiche. I figured I’d larn the same basic viscosity in addition to fatty content (okay, mayhap a tad more), but too a footling to a greater extent than flavor, in addition to a meliorate texture i time reduced.
I topped it amongst around fried sage, which is an optional, messy, but delicious extra step, in addition to makes this much to a greater extent than restauranty. Simply rut a 1/2-inch of vegetable stone oil inward a minor pan, in addition to toss inward around (not wet!) whole sage leaves. Fry until crisp, most 10-15 seconds
The classic training involves braising in addition to slicing a whole roast, but i gustation in addition to I intend you’ll concord it translates beautifully to the stew delivery system. I genuinely promise you lot laissez passer it a endeavor soon. Enjoy!
