Stew Packed With Flavor

Normally when I make a stew it is overflowing with root vegetables, and peas. This one however is a bit different as it is abundant with chicken, pork, and shrimp.

I had boneless chicken breasts in the freezer that I needed to use up, leftover pork loin roast, and thought the shrimp would be a great addition as well.

If not for being on a lower carb diet I would have added cooked rice or perhaps pasta.
