  1. Recipe Instructions In a heavy-bottomed casserole, heat lard until smoking. Add pork pieces, 5 or 6 at a time, and cook until golden-brown. Remove and add carrots, onion, peppers, paprika, speck, cloves, cinnamon and cook until softened, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add wine and bring to a boil. Add meat and return to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 1 1/2 hours until very tender. Season with salt and pepper and allow to chill 4 hours in the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out strudel dough into a 10- by 14-inch rectangle. Place cold pork stew in center and roll up like a strudel.
