Bacon makes it different
Yes, this pork stew is an “old favorite” that’s been reinterpreted. The achiote adds an earthy flavor accent that also offers a feast for the eyes. Also, the precooked cabbage is already flavored with bacon drippings. So, there’s an extra infusion of smokey-flavors in the stew’s broth. The shredded cabbage also makes for a nutritious alternative to regular green peas. We recommend making this stew if you’re in the mood for rustic comfort food.
