Expert Tips

  • (Total time will vary with appliance and setting.)
  • Parsnips are root vegetables that look like creamy white carrots. They have a slightly sweet flavor that goes nicely with pork.
  • Not partial to parsnips? Instead of the parsnips, add two more sliced carrots to the stew. It'll be just as colorful and tasty.
