Stove Top Method
Cut the pork into large chunks, rub with green seasoning, and then let it marinate in a container for at least one hour or overnight for more depth of flavor.
Using a heavy bottom pot or stockpot add the oil and bring to a medium-high heat.
Once the oil is hot, add the onion, garlic, celery, carrot, parsley, and caraway seeds and sauté for 3-5 minutes.
Bring the heat up to high, and then place the pork chunks and marinade into the hot pot to braise the outsides of the meat.
When the surface of the meat is golden and seared, mix in the tomatoes, vegetable broth, and red wine and bring to a boil.
Once the pot is boiling, add the bay leaf and star anise; lower the temperature to a simmer. Cover and cook for 2-3 hours or until the pork is soft and tender.
If the liquid starts to dry up, you may add water, but let the top of the pork be slightly above the liquid as it cooks.
To thicken the gravy mix the 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with a little water and stir in to the pot
When the pork is soft and tender, and the cooking liquid has reduced, remove from the heat, season with salt and black pepper to taste, and serve warm with your choice of side dish and enjoy.
Slow Cooker Method
Follow steps 1-4 in a heavy bottom pot then once the meat has seared remove the meat and all the seasonings into the crock pot.
Mix in the tomatoes, vegetable broth, red wine, bay leaf and star anise.
Set the slow cooker on High for 3 hours or on Low for 8 hours cover and let cook.
Around 30 minutes before ready to serve, thicken the gravy by mixing the 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with a little water and stir into the mixture.
Once the pork is soft and tender and the cooking liquid has reduced, turn off the heat. Season with salt & black pepper to taste and serve warm with your choice of side dish and enjoy.
