DIRECTIONS

  • In a Dutch oven heat oil and butter over medium heat.
  • Season the pork with salt and pepper then add to oil and brown on all sides; transfer to a bowl (since there is quite a lot of pork you will have to do this in 2-3 batches).
  • Add in frozen pearl onions (or onion slices if using) garlic, carrots, celery, bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon stick and dried red pepper flakes or cayenne (if using) saute for about 5-6 minutes.
  • Stir in broth or water, vinegar and soy sauce; bring to a boil and stir with a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits in the bottom of the pan.
  • Return the browned pork to the pot along with any juices from the bowl; mix to combine and season with salt and black pepper.
  • Set oven to 325 degrees.
  • Cover the pot and bake for about 2 hours.
  • Check after 1 hour of cooking time and add in more broth or water if needed and discard the cinnamon stick, season with more salt and pepper if desired.
  • The last 15 minutes of cooking time mix cornstarch with water until smooth add into the simmering stew and cook until thickened (the stew will not be very thick).
