Recipe Tips

Look for stew meat at the meat department of your grocery store. It’s often pieces of meat that have been trimmed away when cutting pork roasts or chops or cut-up pork sirloin. The tougher pieces of pork tenderize when cooked slowly in liquid such as in a stew.

Easy to make, and everyone liked it. I skipped the bat-shaped pastry and just served it with rolls.
