Pork and Vegetable Harvest StewMy weekly organics box included lots of late summer veggies like zucchini, corn and potatoes. I decided to make a hearty stew for dinner. There were various hot peppers included this week, too. I didn't know exactly what they were, so I just chopped them up and threw them in. The stew starts off with a relatively sweet flavor, but has a nice kick at the end.


Prep Time: 30 Minutes

Cook Time: 2 Hours

Total Time: 2.5 Hours

Yield: 8


As I was working with fresh organic veggies, I had a lot of chopping and prep involved. You could save some time by using frozen veggies instead of fresh. I also cut off a section of a pork loin that I'm planning on cooking later in the week. You could use pork chops or any other type of meat you might have handy. I did use Better than Bouillon chicken base. I like it better than bouillon cubes and I didn't have any liquid broth handy.

*Use whatever pepper your family enjoys. I used a combination of hot and sweet ones. It would be also good with regular bell peppers.
