Trim fat from pork; cut pork into 1/4-inch cubes.

Remove casing from sausage. Cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat until browned; stir to crumble. Remove sausage from pan with a slotted spoon. Add onion to pan; saute 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Add pork, and sauté 5 minutes. Add sausage, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Stir in broth and wine, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
