After reading your reviews, I decided to keep the quantities of meat & vegetables but make changes. Cooked two strips of diced bacon and used 1tbs of the fat to skillet-brown 1/2 lb cubed pork. Baked that pork and 1/2 lb of fresh Polish sausage with the broth & herbs for an hour. Used same skillet to cook the veg and added all to the pork along with 3 cans of drained Great Northern beans & the reserved bacon. Baked again per recipe, stirring a couple times and adding more broth as needed. Ended up with a kinda quick cassoulet. Pretty good, but not what CL intended.

Something is not right here. I followed the directions to a "T." When I went to add the onion/carrot mixture, the whole thing looked dry. I added an extra 1/2 cup water and 1 cup broth. When it was done, there was no draining, no liquid at all. The pork is fantastically tender, but it looks nothing like the picture at all.

Made some modifications and put it in my crock pot. Brothy and very good. Made the modifications after reading reviews.I will make it again. Very filling.

I also had to add more liquid than the recipe called for. Ended up adding a total of 4 cups of chicken stock to the dish. The dish was dry after the 1st hour in the oven. Also needs more seasoning. it is a very hearty dish. good comfort food.

I followed the recipe exactly, and I had the same problem with having to add more liquid. I ended up adding about 1 extra cup of broth, which made the dish rather salty for my taste and left little, if any, liquid from which to skim any fat. The basic taste was delicious, though! The recipe was at least 14 pts, so not sure how "light" I was cooking yesterday.
