  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat vegetable oil in a Dutch oven. Season pork with salt and pepper and, working in batches, add to Dutch oven. Cook until browned on all sides; transfer pork to a plate and set aside.

  • Add onion, garlic, cocoa powder, cumin, cinnamon, cardamom, and chipotle chiles to Dutch oven. Cook until onion is soft and spices are fragrant, adding a little water if mixture begins to stick to the bottom of the pot.

  • Return pork to Dutch oven; stir to combine. Add 1 cup water, sweet potatoes, and turnips; do not stir. Cover and transfer to oven. Cook until pork is tender and vegetables are soft, about 1 1/2 hours. Serve hot with rice, if desired, and garnished with tomato and cilantro.

Loved this recipe. Don't forget to put some salt in there (besides what you season the meat with) else it tends to be a little bland. Also, you REALLY should get rid of every last bit of fat from the pork butt-- it doesn't work well with the texture in your mouth if you don't.

This is outstanding. My boyfriend and I had two helpings. The spices are just perfect. It has a bite to it. I can't wait to invite someone over to enjoy this special dish. I removed many seeds from the chiles, so it wouldn't be too hot. My apartment still has the wonderful spice smell.

The cilantro/parsley sauce is a Chimichurri Sauce. It was used at the restaurant on steaks, salmon, etc and was not used in the pork stew. These are approximate measurements. Chimichurri Sauce 2 cups parsley 2 cups cilantro 1 cup lime juice 1/4 cup chopped red onion or scallion Pinch each of salt, pepper, sugar Mix above in blender then drizzlle in enough Olive oil to make a thin sauce. Thinner than pesto.

Help me out here. What happened to the recipe for the cilantro/parsley mix that was done in the blender and added to the pork? Anyone get those ingredients? It's been left out of the video, too. I imagine it is an integral flavor component to the finished dish. Bummer.
