Goulash-Style Pork Stew + VIDEO


I made this Goulash-Style Pork Stew in partnership with the National Pork Board. Thanks for reading ans supporting the brands that make this blog possible.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I live in Miami. Here one says pork and the first thing that comes to mind is a lechón roasted in a Caja China. Or a good roasted pork shoulder, or pork leg. We owe that, of course, to the Cuban influence, omnipresent in South Florida.

If you know me, you know that if something I miss is being able to enjoy the four seasons. It must be because I was born and raised in the tropics. And you like what you don’t have. Although I appreciate the subtropical climate of Miami, sometimes I dream of fireplaces and a good stew, like a pork goulash…

How To Make Pork Stew

So I decided to turn a pork loin into a stew. A pork goulash, to be precise. The first thing I did was cut a third of a juicy pork loin into one-inch cubes. I seasoned it with salt and pepper. Then, I covered it with cornstarch. Then I sealed the meat in a hot cauldron with a few drops of olive oil.

Once sealed, I reserved the pork. In the same cauldron, I made a sofrito with onion, garlic, celery, and red bell pepper. Once the sofrito had wilted, I added tomato, paprika and cooked it covered. I added the pork first, and then in this order: carrot and potatoes, and seasoned it with bay leaves and fresh thyme.
