Ingredients

  • 3 lbs pork braising cubes trimmed and cubed
  • 3 lbs pork shoulder blade boneless roasts trimmed and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 4 carrots chopped
  • 2 celery stalks chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups sodium-reduced chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup sodium-reduced chicken stock
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 cup grainy mustard
  • 3/4 cups frozen green peas
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

Method

Toss pork with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the flour. In Dutch oven, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown pork, in batches and adding more oil as needed. Remove to plate.

In same Dutch oven, heat remaining oil. Fry onions, carrots, celery, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add stock, wine, bay leaf and 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) water; return pork and any accumulated juices to pan. Bring to boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 45 minutes or until meat is tender. Discard bay leaf.

Whisk together mustard, remaining flour and 2 tbsp (25 mL) water; stir into stew and simmer until thickened, 3 minutes. Stir in peas and parsley; heat through, 3 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate, uncovered, in shallow container until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Or freeze for up to 1 month; thaw in refrigerator.)
