EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Be sure to purchase the correct cut of pork for this stew. The shoulder roast is a tough cut of pork that needs to be braised, or cooked slowly in liquid, to become tender. If you use a cut that’s already tender, such as a pork loin roast, braising will make it tough and dry.

If you like, you can substitute 3 carrots for the parsnips.
