Pork-and-Greens Stew

Prep time 20 mins
Cook time 2 hrs, 30 mins
Yield Makes 6 to 8 servings
Amber beer may easily be substituted for Oktoberfest.

Ingredients

  • 1 (3 1/2- to 4-lb.) boneless pork shoulder roast, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 (12-oz.) bottles Oktoberfest beer
  • 2 (10.75-oz.) cans condensed chicken broth, undiluted
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 (16-oz.) package frozen chopped turnip greens, thawed
  • 1 (15-oz.) can white hominy, rinsed and drained

How to Make It

  1. Cut pork into 3-inch pieces; sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper, and place in a large Dutch oven. Stir in beer, broth, and onion. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until pork shreds easily with a fork.

  2. Remove pork, and shred with 2 forks. Skim fat from surface of broth in Dutch oven.

  3. Return pork to Dutch oven, and stir in greens and hominy. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until greens are tender.

  4. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Saint Arnold Oktoberfest beer.

  5. Kitchen Express Pork-and-Greens Stew: Omit salt. Substitute 2 (17-oz.) packages fully cooked pork roast au jus for pork shoulder roast. Rinse pork roast, and shred. Combine pork, pepper, beer, broth, and onion in Dutch oven. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes. Stir in greens and hominy. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until greens are tender. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Hormel Pork Roast Au Jus.
