I first made this stew for my friends Joe and Dorrie in Ohio, last season. I called it Portuguese squirrel stew at the time, but I really have no idea whether this qualifies as Portuguese. All I know is that it’s damn good.
If you search this site, you will find several recipes for various versions of pork and beans, largely because I feel the combination is divinely inspired. Most people are more familiar with the Brazilian version of this dish, but its origins are in Portugal, which ruled over Brazil for quite some time. Either way, the stew
A hearty stew with homemade linguica, white beans and real Portuguese cabbage inspired by the caldo verde eaten in the Azores.

Nothing like a nasty winter rainstorm to get me braising meats — in this case a Portuguese style braised venison shank, with fresh nettles and celery root puree mixed with mascarpone cheese.
