Portuguese Pork & Clam Stew

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Busters friend

This recipe caught my eye when it came to me in an email because pork shoulder & fresh clams are inexpensive, readily available & oh so very good. I have not paired them before but am eager to give it a go! I plan to bake this in the oven after browning the pork - will probably do 300 degree F - so will use my trusty enameled dutch oven for carefree cooking. Will serve with rice, a good chewy loaf to sop up wonderful stewiness & a green salad with a light vinagrette.

This broth was delicious! I found some authentic brand of Spanish chorizo at a nice local store, and the stew was amazing. I did, however, have trouble getting my clams to open up. Next time I'll try getting them down into the broth more and maybe turning up the heat at that point.
