It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
This is the result of a "I don't *want* to run to the grocery store" night.
1-2 lb pork stew meat
2-3 packages frozen vegetables of your choice (or use fresh this was kind of a mish mash of what I had on hand in the winter) I used green beans, corn, & mixed veg with lima beans.
2-3 potatoes peeled & diced (I usually do a med-small dice)
1 large yellow onion diced or halved & cut into strips
1-2 large cans tomato sauce
1 can petite diced tomatoes (or stewed whole diced)
Water equal to the amount of tomato sauce.
1/4 cup brown sugar
Chipolte pepper to taste (I like to use Pampered Chefs chipolte blend 1-2Tbsp.) If you aren't using the chipolte I'd prob eliminate the brown sugar & substitute garlic.
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste.
Saute the pork in a pot that will fit all your ingredients until it starts to brown. Sprinkle with salt & pepper while cooking.
Add onion & saute until it starts to soften.
Add potatoes, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, brown sugar, chipolte and water. Reduce to a simmer & simmer 30 min.
Add all your veggies @ this point & simmer until they cook, sauce thickens & potatoes are done.
Serve in bowls.
This makes a nice thick hearty stew. Great on a chilly night. I add as many veggies as I can fit into the pot. The brown sugar takes the heat from the chipolte so that my kids will eat it w/o complaint lol.
