Crock Pot Recipe: Pork Stew

I absolutely love my crock pot in the winter!!  I’ve already done a Beef Stew and a Chunky Chicken Soup in my slow cooker, so I recently decided to try out a pork stew!  This recipe is something that I adapted from a recipe I found through my iPad app, “Food Network- In the Kitchen.”  If you don’t have this app yet, you should definitely check it out!!

Here’s the recipe the way I made my Pork Stew!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound red bliss potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 2 stalks celery, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 3 cloves garlic (I put them through a garlic press)
  • 1 (2 inch) piece of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 pork roast (I used a 3 pound boneless pork roast)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 (14 ounce) can of diced tomatoes
Directions:
  • Combine the potatoes, carrots, celery, garlic and ginger in your crock pot / slow cooker.
  • Add half of your flour and then add some salt and pepper.
  • Add your bay leaves on top of the vegetables.
  • Season the pork generously with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with thyme and all-spice.
  • Next use your remaining flour to coat the entire pork roast.
  • Place the pork on top of your vegetables.
  • Add 2 cups of water and the can of diced tomatoes.
  • Cook on low for 8 hours.
  • Once fully cooked, remove the bay leaves and throw them away.  
  • Remove the roast from the crock pot and slice the meat into pieces.  (You can also try to remove any fatty pieces at this time).
  • Once the roast is fully cut, add the pieces back into the crock pot, stir everything together, and then serve!
We brought this stew over to my sister-in-law’s house and everyone there gave it rave reviews!  I personally did not think it was the best of my stews, but maybe it was because the pork is a fattier meat and I don’t love fatty meats.  But if you enjoy pork, this stew will be pork perfection!
