I made this from a recipe I found in Cooking Light this month. It was a great recipe, but trust me when I tell you to cook it, cool it, put it in the fridge, and serve it the NEXT NIGHT! It was soooooooo much better the 2nd day! The stew was a lot richer and all the flavors just intensified over night... Mmmm.

  1. Heat 1 tsp of the oil in a large dutch oven over medium heat. Add fennel and onion and saute for 8 minutes until tender. Add the garlic and saute 2 minutes more.
  2. Spoon the fennel mixture into a bowl and put aside for now.
  3. Place the flour in a shallow powl. Dredge the pork in flour, shaking off excess.
