Spezzatino SpeziatoHere's a Spezzatino Speziato, or spicy pork stew.

It's not spicy the way we Americans usually employ the term; it is not hot at all, but it's loaded with ground cumin and coriander, and the lemon gives it a light citrusy zing.

This would be good served over rice.

  1. In a dutch oven, melt the butter and let it heat until the foam subsides.
  2. Add the pork and stir it around until it is browned on all sides.
  3. Pour in half the wine and add the garlic and cumin. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes, until the meat is tender.
  4. Remove the meat to a place where you can keep it warm.
  5. Add the coriander and lemon and turn up the heat to reduce the sauce.
  6. When the sauce is reduced by half, dress the meat with it and serve hot.
