ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 8 turns freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic

  • 24 cherrystone clams, scrubbed
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Crusty bread, for serving
  • Cilantro sprigs, for garnish
    • recipe tools

      Directions

      Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat and brown the pork, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes. Stir in the onions, celery, bell pepper, salt, crushed red pepper, and black pepper. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the saffron and stir. Add the clams, wine, and cilantro. Cover the skillet and cook over high heat until all the clams are open, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

      To serve, divide the clams and broth among 4 shallow bowls, allowing about 6 clams for each serving, and serve with crusty bread. Garnish with fresh cilantro sprigs, if desired.
