Seal Fried with Salt Pork & Onions

  • 1 large onion, cut into chunks
  • small package of salt pork, cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 T oil or animal fat
  • 2 T butter
  • 1 1/2 cups bone broth or stock
  1. The meat: cut up seal into stewsized chunks and dredge generously in a bowl of flour until all chunks are coated. Then add to heated skillet and fry in oil or animal fat.
  2. Give the meat a stir. Then add the onions and continue frying and stirring until mixture is evenly browned, scraping bottom of pan to prevent flour from sticking. Add more oil. If the flour absorbs oil, start adding butter for extra flavour.
  3. When mixture is fully browned, add stock and cover with lid. Turn heat down and allow stew to simmer until meat is tender and gravy has thickened (about 40mins).
