Pork “Al Latte” – Now 100% Milk Free!

This comforting pork stew recipe is exactly the kind of
homey dish you want waiting for you after a long, hard week…and maybe a 13-hour
drive. Unfortunately, I made this last week, so I couldn’t actually enjoy it
today, after a long, hard week and 13-hour drive, but just editing it made me
feel better. It was that good.

This stew version is inspired by the classic Italian recipe,
“maiale al latte,” or “pork in milk,” but instead of the usual moo juice, I
decided to make my own with chicken broth and crème fraiche. I figured I’d get
the same basic viscosity and fat content (okay, maybe a tad more), but also a
little more flavor, and a better texture once reduced.

I topped it with some fried sage, which is an optional, messy,
but delicious extra step, and makes this much more restauranty. Simply heat a
1/2-inch of vegetable oil in a small pan, and toss in some (not wet!) whole
sage leaves. Fry until crisp, about 10-15 seconds

The classic preparation involves braising and slicing a
whole roast, but one taste and I think
you’ll agree it translates beautifully to the stew delivery system. I really
hope you give it a try soon. Enjoy!

Ingredients for 4 portions:
1 1/2 pound pork shoulder, cut in 2-inch cubes (note: I only
had 1 pound, but the recipe will work with another half, which will make four
nice portions)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 strips bacon
1 small yellow onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup crème fraiche
2 tbsp fresh chopped sage leaves, plus more for frying
salt and pepper to taste
red chili flakes to taste
*Simmer covered for 1 hour, and then uncovered until the
meat is very tender, and the sauce is thickened. Adjust with more broth if

Beef & Guinness Stew – Drinking AND Eating Beer on St. Patrick’s Day

While I’ve never been a huge fan of drinking Guinness, I’ve
always been a great admirer of how wonderfully it can elevate a simple beef stew. The subtle
bitterness from the hops, and toastiness from the malt, gives the gravy a depth
of flavor that I really love.

Besides, you only need one can for this St. Patrick’s Day-inspired stew, and since they’re sold in 4-can packs…well, you can do the math.
This would normally be the point in post where I’d make my annual Irish
drinking joke, but I’m not doing one this year.

Not only is it inappropriate, but it’s culturally
insensitive, and I’d like to think I’ve matured past the point of going for
such cheap laughs. Besides, my Irish joke writer, Paddy O’Sullivan, was on a
binge this week, so I never got one from him anyway. Oh well, like I said,
probably for the best.

Anyway, if you’re looking for a gorgeous and incredibly
delicious Irish stew recipe for your St. Patrick’s Day menu, this one comes
highly recommended. I served mine with some green onion mashed potatoes, and
while I usually encourage you to serve things like this on whatever you want,
not this time. You must serve this with some form of potato. And that is no
joke. I hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy!

Ingredients for 4 large servings:
4 strips bacon, sliced into small pieces
2 1/2 lb. beef chuck, cut in 2-inch pieces (tossed with
black pepper and at least 1 tsp salt)
2 onions, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (14.0-oz) Guinness beer, or other dark beer
1/4 cup tomato paste
4 sprigs of fresh thyme
3 carrots, cut in 1-inch pieces
2 ribs celery, cut in 1-inch pieces
2 1/2 cups chicken stock, or as needed
1 tsp sugar
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 cups mashed potatoes, optional (not really)
– Simmer stew on very low heat, covered, for about 2 hours,
or until fork tender
– Uncover, raise heat to med-high, and reduce, stirring
occasionally, until sauce thickens to your liking
Taste and adjust seasoning!

That’s goodtoknow

You can pack this into freezer containers, keeping tomato coulis separate from the beef and vegetables and freeze for up to 1 month. Allow to defrost before reheating.

Woman’s Weekly Cookery Editor, Sue McMahon


  • 2level tbsp White Flora (healthy alternative to lard)
  • 1.25kg (2¾lb) joint topside (or similar) beef
  • Approximately 1kg (2¼lb) prepared root vegetables e.g. carrot, parsnip, turnip and swede, cut into chunks
  • 150ml (¼ pint) brown ale
  • 150ml (¼ pint) beef stock
  • 1 level tsp tomato purée
  • Bouquet garni, fresh or dried
  • Knob of softened butter
  • Freshly chopped parsley, to garnish

For the tomato coulis:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced in rings
  • 500g (1lb) tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and sliced
  • Salt and ground black pepper


  1. Set the oven to gas mark 3 or 160°C.
  2. Heat the White Flora in a flame-proof casserole and brown the beef all over. Remove the beef from the pan and add the prepared vegetables. Cover the pan and sweat them for about 7 mins. Then replace the meat, pour round the ale and stock and add the tomato purée and bouquet garni. Tightly cover the casserole dish, and place the pan in the oven for about 1½ hrs, or until the meat is tender.
  3. When the beef is almost cooked, make the tomato coulis. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the onion. Cook onion until just brown, then add the tomatoes. Season the mixture, then cover the pan and cook for only 2-3 mins, until the tomatoes are just soft.
  4. Remove the beef from the casserole and strain the gravy. Place the vegetables in a serving dish. Whisk the softened butter into gravy. Slice the beef.
  5. Spoon the tomato coulis on one side of the serving plate and arrange the slices of beef on the other, spoon over a little gravy and serve the rest separately. Sprinkle over chopped parsley. Serve with creamed potatoes and a bowl of carrots and peas, if liked.
