That looks so delicious! I'll definitely be making it -- thanks for the recipe, Melissa :)


Why is pork shoulder also called pork butt? As far as I can tell, the meat is actually from the shoulder area of the pig, so why the confusion with the other end of the animal?

Also, I'm really looking forward to your cookbook.


Gretchen - I don't know why the shoulder is called the butt, but it is. One of the possible origins of the name has to do with pork being shipped in barrels called butts. The rear end of the piggy is called the ham!

We made this over the weekend and it was delicious and so easy! It was very stormy and chilly here at the Oregon coast, and we were definitely looking for a hearty stew this weekend.

I am looking forward to your new cookbook, too!


Hey! I just found out about you from watching Iron Chef America recently. It may have been a repeat. This looks like a very comforting meal which I'll have to try. One of the stews I like to make is lamb stew. I prefer it over beef. Cheers! Karen
