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!
- 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
- 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
- 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!
