Servings: 4 people
- 500 gr sliced pork shoulder
- Two medium onions sliced
- 100 gr smoked bacon sliced
- Two green paprika sliced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp grounded sweet paprika
- 2 medium garlic cloves minced
- 1 cup white wine
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 bay leave
- 2 or 3 tbsp olive oil
In a large pot over medium to medium-high heat, add onions, bacon, green paprika and one tbsp oil. Saute onions until they are translucent, but not browned. When the onions have finished cooking, turn down heat to low, add grounded paprika and bay leave to mixture and stir to mix well.
Season each side of the pork slices generously with salt and pepper.
In a frying pan over medium-high to high heat, heat about a tbsp of oil. Fry each slice of pork until just barely golden brown around the edges, about 1-2 minutes, flipping halfway through. If they are thin enough, this will be enough to cook them fully. Lay them between sheets of paper towel on a plate to catch excess oil.
Cut each of the pork slices in half and place them back in the pot with the onions. Add garlic, water and chicken broth to the pot to cover the pork and onions. Cover pot and simmer on medium heat for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Stir occasionally.
When the stew is thickened up a bit and the onions are starting to disappear, it is ready for the final seasoning. Add salt and pepper to taste and white wine. Simmer on medium heat for more 15 minutes.
