This has become one of mine and my husband's favorite recipes of all time! It's absolutely delicious and we love the broth so much that we use all of it and add carrots and lentils to the pot at the same time that we add the potatoes. We eat it as a pork soup with dinner rolls or pao de queijo. Tonight we're going to try using sword fish instead of pork for the first time - just to see what it's like.
