DIRECTIONS

  • Season cubed pork to taste.
  • Heat olive oil in large heavy dutch oven over medium heat.
  • When oil is hot add half of the cubed pork and brown well.
  • Remove and brown the other half then set aside.
  • Add sausage to brown lightly then set aside with pork.
  • Add chopped onions, celery and bell pepper to dutch oven and saute until soft scraping browned bits off the bottom, about 30 minutes.
  • Add chicken broth and bring to a simmer.
  • Cook for 5 minutes.
  • In a large heavy stock pot heat 1/2 cup oil until hot.
  • Add flour, stirring quickly.
  • Stir roux over medium high heat until it turns a dark-reddish brown color (almost the color of milk chocolate - about 25 minutes).
  • Add chicken broth/vegetable mixture to roux to stop the browning process (be careful as it will splatter).
  • Add minced garlic, oregano, sage, worcestershire sauce, tomato paste and the remaining seasonings to taste.
  • Stir until the broth is incorporated into the roux.
  • Cover, lower heat and simmer gently for 45 minutes.
  • Add reserved pork and sausage and return to a simmer.
  • Simmer covered for 30 minutes or until pork is tender.
