"Very tasty but there is TONS of sauce. I doubled the meat and seasonings but not the liquids and still had a lot of sauce. Served it over rice. Very tasty!"

"We also added more veggies in this stew potato, celery, and carrots. Had 2 double the recipe. All except the water. Cut the meat the night before and added half the seasoning to it. Put everything in the crock pot the next day including the other half of the seasoning. Added cabbage the last hour of cooking time. It was very flavorful. this recipe is a keeper."

"This recipe was really tasty. I took some tips from other reviewers and used onion and garlic while browning the pork, then drained slightly b/f transferring to crock pot, I also added cut carrots for more veggies and heartiness- I served over spinach linguine, which was tasty. Next time I'll try it over rice."

"This is such a great recipe!! Was easy to prepare and had lots of flavor. IMHO, stews need to have more veggies than this one does, so I added 3-4 large carrots and 3 parsnips, cut into coins. I also took the suggestion of one reviewer (thank you!) to add 2 cups dry Dreamfields elbow macaroni (a wonderful, tasty, low-carb pasta) during the last 2 hours of cooking, which meant I didn't do the cornstarch or use the optional fettucine. Was a great suggestion and added to the stew. Yummy recipe!"

"This was very, very tasty. I buy the 5-6 lb. pork loins when on a good sale. Slice and cube, then weigh out and freeze the pork in 1-1/2 lb packages. I can't always find the pepper stir-fry blend so I used fresh red, green and yellow peppers sliced thin and about 2 sliced onions."

"Good, easy recipe. However, the pork itself was rather tasteless. I would brown it in garlic and oil the next time, as well as adding some pearl onions to the recipe."
