Easy Pork Stew

Updated on November 16, 2014

I love making stew. It is so incredibly easy to make, and so easy to make a large pot that can provide lots of leftovers! (which I love to be able to pack during the week for work). It is also a dish that makes your entire house smell delicious as it simmers. Finally, although it is great to eat any time of the year, it is more so especially tasty and really warms the soul on a cold day.

I honestly would have to say that stew is one of the easiest things to make. The largest amount of prep time required in making stew is chopping up all the different ingredients, but when you have that done, you are set to go! The below stew recipe can be made the same way in a slow cooker (except that you would need it to cook for about 8 hours throughout the day) but my version is the stove top version.

Prep time: 15 min

Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: Serves six people

potatoes, pepper, olive oil, pork, diced tomatoes, carrots, peppers, garlic, herbs, apples
  • 1 lb Pork, cubed
  • 4 medium-sized Potatoes or Yams (or both!), cubed
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 large Carrots, chopped
  • 1 Pepper (Orange, Yellow, Red), diced
  • 2 Apples, chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • Herbs (Dried or Fresh - Oregano, Rosemary...), if fresh, minced
  • Olive Oil
  • Black Pepper
  1. Turn large pot over medium heat. Drizzle olive oil and add garlic. Once pot is heated, add pork until it is browned and cooked through (about 6 minutes).
  2. Next, add potatoes/yams, carrots, pepper, apples, and herbs and cook for about 3 minutes.
  3. Next, pour in can of diced tomatoes and add some black pepper to pot and stir contents around. Once the pot comes to a boil, turn down to low heat and let it sit for about 35 minutes. Serve over some rice and enjoy!
This is the longest part of the stew - chopping everything up!

A few notes:

  • As mentioned above, this recipe can be made in a slow cooker. Simply just add all the ingredients into your slow cooker and turn on to low for about an 8 hour cook period.
  • Apples can be removed from the recipe if you would like, but I find that it gives an extra sweet flavour.
  • I used potatoes only in my recipe, but yams also add an extra flavour if you have some available.
  • Your stew can be served with rice, pasta, bread etc.. anything that will help to absorb some of the delicious sauce of the stew (or you can of course just eat it on its own!)

      thank you @mio cid! :) yes, so many different ingredients can be added to stew to make it always taste different each time which makes it such a great recipe. I'll have to try next time with chickpeas :)
