At this time of year when the weather is starting to get a nip in the air there's nothing quite as satisfying as a home cooked stew to warm you up.
For this stew I used two and a half pounds of pork that had been left over from a very large pork loin roast that I'd cut up into several roasts and chops. When pork loin roasts are on sale I will buy several using them in many different recipes.
Prep: 30 minutes
Cooking time 1 1/2 hours
Ready in 2 hours
Will serve 5 - 6 people
Ingredients for Pork Stew

To go along with this stew you may want to serve a side salad and fresh crusty rolls with butter, or a nice Italian or French loaf.
If you have any leftovers cool it completely and store in a bowl in the refrigerator. Heat it up the following day for lunch or dinner. It is just as good reheated.
