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.


  • 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)

Steps 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.
