  • 4 Onion ( peeled and sliced into 1/2" thick pieces)
  • 14.5 oz Chicken Broth

  • 3

    Add the onions and garlic to the Dutch oven and cook until the onions are soft, stirring for even cooking.

  • 4

    Once the onions are soft, stir in caraway seed, bay leaf, chicken broth, beer, vinegar and brown sugar.

  • 5

    Bring the stew to a boil, and then lower heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour, until pork is very tender, stirring occasionally.
