  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, cook the salt pork or bacon until crisp.
  3. Step 3

    Add both types of onions and cook until they start to soften, for about 4 or 5 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the onions, and add the bay leaves and thyme.
  4. Step 4

    Increase the heat to high. Pour in the wine and stir to loosen any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until the wine has evaporated.
  5. Step 5

    Add the potatoes, chicken broth, and pepper. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the potatoes are tender, for 45 to 60 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Sprinkle the stew with paprika, if desired. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Remove the bay leaves before serving.
  7. Step 7

    Garnish with sliced green onions, if you like. Enjoy.
