Simple Pork Stew

1FB3213D-FD18-4653-A4D2-F9F9BA9C4FA0Since we had brought a pork loin when I split it up I turned some into stew meat. Stew whether beef, chicken, or pork is  just comfort food. If I had to rate my top ten of meals stew would make the top ten. Not sure of why I like it so much just know I enjoy making it and eating it makes me feel good. There are really no rules to stew, you can put what you like in it. What ever you do you end up with a good meal. I had some mushrooms left from making ramen so they got thrown in the pot. Had leftover diced tomatoes from making chilli so added them also. Once you have browned the meat anything else is fair game for stew. The other healthy part of what makes stew a great meal is the vegetables are five times the amount of meat in the pot.

1 pound pork stew meat

2 tablespoons flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

3 bay leaves

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 cup chicken broth

1 cup beef broth

1 cup diced tomatoes

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon kitchen banquet

1 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 onions quartered

1 large rib celery cut in 1 inch pieces

2 carrots chopped

1 small turnip chopped in 1 and 1/2 inch chunks

2 potatoes chopped in 1 and 1/2 inch chunks

4 large white mushrooms quartered

Heat a pot on medium with butter and olive oil. Mix flour, salt, and pepper with the pork. Brown pork well then add chicken and beef broth, tomatoes, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaves, kitchen banquet, and Italian seasoning. Turn heat to simmer, cover and simmer for 1 hour. After one hour add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for one and a half hours stirring about every 20 minutes. Serve with good bread or rolls.
