Step 1: You will need.
- 500 g pork spare ribs, cut into chunks
- 6 slices of bacon, chopped
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 carrots, diced
- 4 cloves of garlic, sliced, crushed
- 6 g tomato paste
- 2 tomatoes, peeled and chopped
- 100 g black beans, pre-soaked
- 100 ml white wine
- 2 bay leaves
- few sprigs of thyme
- 750 ml chicken stock
- 200 g clams
- 2 tbsp parsley, chopped
- 60 ml olive oil
- 1 saucepan
- 1 wooden spoon
- 1 slotted spoon
- 1 tray
Step 2: Season pork.
Begin by seasoning the chunks of pork spare ribs with salt and pepper. Use your hands to mix it in and, turning the chunks over, do the same with the other side.
Step 3: Brown pork.
Place the saucepan on a high heat and add a little olive oil. Sear the chunks of pork spare ribs on both sides until browned, then remove the pork and place on the tray.
Step 4: Continue to make the stew.
You should continue by adding the bacon to the saucepan. Once the bacon has browned, add the onion, carrots, garlic and tomato paste. Mix before adding the white wine.
Step 5: Add the remainder of the ingredients.
Now add the tomatoes, black beans, seared pork, chicken stock, bay leaves and thyme. Ensure that all of the ingredients are allowed to simmer and cook for approximately 2 hours.
Step 6: Add clams.
Once the 2 hours have passed, add the clams and cook them for 5-10 minutes on a low heat.
Step 7: Finish with parsley.
Check for clams that have failed to open and be sure to discard them. Finally, add the parsley and mix well.
Step 8: Plate and serve.
Spoon the stew into a serving bowl and garnish with any remaining parsley. Goes well with a slice of crusty bread and potatoes. Be sure to add lots of salt and pepper to taste!
