Sangria Pork Stew

We received a few bottles of red wine as gifts last Christmas and since I cannot drink anything with alcohol content above 4 % I decided to just use it for cooking- stews and gravies mostly. I’d like to share this super delicious and simple pork stew that I cooked in red wine.

This dish was inspired by my caldereta but I decided to keep this really simple – just pork and some chillies and red wine and of course the basic ingredients for stew: garlic, onion, salt and pepper, tomato paste. It tastes so rich and flavorful..soooo good..we love, love, looove it so much! 😀

I borrowed the name from a pork roast recipe (Sangria Roast Pork) that I saw from a magazine- it uses Sangria as a brining liquid. Sangria is a Spanish/Portuguese wine punch of red wine with some fruits and sweeteners. I just use red wine for this dish, but I’m pretty sure that if I use Sangria, it’ll taste just as great if not better…I will try it next time 🙂

Pork simmered over low heat/fire for hours in red wine. Delicious!
Recipe type: Main, Pork
Serves: 6-8
  • 1 kilo pork (2.2 lbs) shoulder mixed with some pork belly or use your favorite cut
  • garlic, minced ( as much as you like)
  • 1 large red onion, minced
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • green finger chillies
  • salt and pepper
  • fish sauce (optional), to taste
  • 1½ cup red wine
  • extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  1. Heat a saucepan over medium high heat, add EVOO and saute garlic, onion until onion is translucent.
  2. Add pork, season with salt and pepper and cook on high heat, stirring until browned and caramelized.
  3. Add tomato paste and red wine.
  4. Bring to a boil then lower heat to medium low and let simmer until pork is really tender and the liquid is greatly reduced and oil starts to come out.
  5. Add green chillies halfway through cooking. If the liquid becomes too little and the pork isn't done yet, you may add a little water then cook for more minutes repeat process as necessary. Adjust taste to your liking.


Have a nice day..GOD Bless!! 🙂 ♥
