Haitian Pork Stew (Griots)


Prep time: About 1 hour
Cooking time: About 3 hours

Makes: 24 servings




Directions -

  1. Trim the fat and membrane from the loin. Cut into 2-inch cubes (about 70 - 75).
  2. Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet until a light haze forms. Add pork in batches and turn to brown all sides.
  3. Remove browned pork, drain off excess oil, and transfer to a 2-gallon stew pot.
  4. Continue browning additional batches of pork. Oil will probably splatter, so be prepared.
  5. Pour off remaining oil. Add water to loosen the brown coating in the pan. Add to the stew pot.
  6. Pour in the remaining ingredients, cover and simmer 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  7. Remove the lid and simmer another 30 minutes to thicken somewhat.

Serve over rice or rice and beans.
