This spicy slow-cooked stew from Rebecca Overy of Evanston, Wyoming combines tender chunks of pork with colorful tomatoes and green peppers. "I garnish bowls of it with chopped hard-cooked eggs and green onions," she adds.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried celery flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • Hot cooked noodles

Directions

  1. In a 3-qt. slow cooker, combine the first 10 ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat is tender.
