"This is a recipe I found on the internet and it was different than my usual method of making stew. I never used tomato paste, worcestershire sauce, sage, oregano or bay leaves in any of my stews so I decided to try this one out. Well, let me tell you no one could have been more pleased than I was after tasting this. This will be the recipe I use from now on when I make pork stew. Be sure not to leave your roux unattended - it must be stirred constantly so it doesn't burn. If you see black flecks it's burnt and the only thing you can do is throw it out and start over or it will have a very bitter taste. If you have trouble with burning you might want to lower your fire a bit and cook it over lower heat. If you're not familiar with andouille it is a very highly smoked and seasoned sausage that adds a tremendous amount of flavor. In fact, I was amazed at the difference in the taste of the gravy after I added the pork and andouille. If you do use andouille be careful not to add too much or it will overpower your dish. One link or 1/3 lb was plenty for this dish. You can use any type of pork - I had some boneless pork chops in the freezer so I just cubed those. I would recommend using a lean cut of pork as you don't want your stew to be too greasy. When pork loins (not tenderloins) go on sale this would be the perfect opportunity to make this dish. Naturally, living in South Louisiana, we serve this over rice and a big scoop of potato salad on the side finishes it off perfectly."
