The perfect comfort food on a cold winter's day, this hearty potato stew is filled with delicious pork, bacon, white wine, fresh herbs and of course, potatoes. Serve with freshly made biscuits or crusty bread.

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 pound salt pork (cut into 1-inch strips, or about 5 to 6 slices bacon, diced)
  • 1 large onion (cut into 1-inch chunks)
  • 4 to 6 green onions (sliced)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup white wine (dry)
  • 3 pounds potatoes (cut into 1-inch chunks, red, yellow, or a variety)
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Optional: paprika (sweet ground)

How to Make It

  1. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, cook the salt pork or bacon until crisp.
  2. Add onions and cook until they start to soften, about 4 or 5 minutes. Sprinkle flour over the onions, add bay leaves and thyme; increase the heat to high. Pour in wine and stir to loosen brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until wine has evaporated.
  3. Add potatoes, broth, and pepper. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 45 to 60 minutes. Sprinkle with paprika, if desired. Taste and adjust seasonings. Remove bay leaves before serving.
