Fricassee of Pork

  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 5 pounds pork, shoulder or back, including bonw, cut through bone into 8 pieces
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons dried yellow aji chili powder, to taste
  • 5 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 16 cups (4 quarts) water
  • 2 teaspoons salt, or to taste

1. In a processor grind together the cumin, aji powder, pepper, turmeric, and garlic. Set aside.

2. Bring the water to a boil in a large pan. Add the pork and ground seasonings and cook over moderate heat for 15 minutes. Add the bread crumbs and salt and mix well. Cook, covered, for 1-1/2 hours (or more), until the meat is soft. Stir in the wine vinegar. The fricassee will develop a thick sauce, but if it is too thick, add a small amount of boiling water.

3. Serve hot, with white rice and white or yellow corn kernels. It can also be served, if preferred, with boiled potatoes.
