I got this idea watching a cooking show that showed how a cook used portabella mushrooms to substitute for burgers.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Render the bacon and the salt pork.
  2. Add the sliced onions.
  3. Cook until onions are translucent.
  4. Add the other vegetables.
  5. Sauté for a few moments.
  6. In the meantime heat the oil in a pan, then add the tomato paste.
  7. Cook until the tomato paste turns brown.
  8. DO NOT LET THE PASTE BURN!
  9. Add the broth to the paste and let it come to a boil.
  10. In the meantime add the mushrooms (cut in bite size chunks) to the vegetables.
  11. Add the paprika.
  12. You add it that late, because paprika burns easily and then becomes bitter.
  13. For a spicier flavor use hot kind.
  14. Sauté for a few minutes.
  15. Then add the broth mixture to the mushrooms.
  16. Bring to a boil, reduce to a slow simmer and simmer for about one hour covered.
  17. In the last 30 minutes add the red wine.
  18. Season with salt and pepper.
  19. Thicken the stew with the flour mixed with some water!
  20. Serve with noodles or rice or dumplings.
