Ingredients

  • Salt
  • Cooking oil
  • 8 to 10 white mushrooms, diced
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced
  • 2 large carrots, grated
  • 5 to 6 garlic cloves, pressed or finely minced
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp smoked or regular paprika
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups water
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 1 to 1 ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh dill, chopped

For Mashed Potatoes:

  • 5 lbs Russet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 to 3 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • ¼ cup heavy cream

Instructions

Making Braised Pork:

  • Prepare the pork shoulder first. Using a sharp knife, carefully portion the pork into 1-inch cubes. Preheat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of cooking oil. Season the pork generously with salt and brown the pork shoulder for 7 to 8 minutes, until well-browned all over. Do this step in 2 to 3 small batches to avoid over-crowding the pan. Transfer the pork into a large braising pan.
