Rosemary and Lemon Pork Stew

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

This rich stew uses typical Portuguese seasonings and ingredients such as dry wine (vinho seco), paprika, and lemon. The meat is oh-so-tender, and the dish is very no-fuss. Serve with rice and/or lots of traditional Portuguese cornmeal bread.

I did not care for this recipe much. Although I agree that it is easy to prepare and the meat is very tender, the wine was entirely too overpowering and could stand to be diluted a little. I used dry white wine, as directed. It was served over rice and I thickened it just a tad, but no where near enough to change the flavor. The spices together would have been great if the wine was not so strong. I may decide to try again, I will use half wine and half water, because, like I said it was easy and the meat was very tender.
