Chef John's Pork al Latte
In this video, you’ll see how to make a comforting pork stew with an Italian accent. Inspired by a classic Italian dish, maiale al latte (“pork in milk”), Chef John's version calls for crème fraiche and chicken broth instead of traditional milk. You'll slowly simmer beautifully browned chunks of pork shoulder in the liquid, along with bacon, garlic, and herbs. And the result? Flavorful, incredibly tender, melt-in-the-mouth pork—and a sauce with a wonderfully luxurious texture and rich taste. It's perfect for cool autumn evenings!
