Hearty Pork Stew

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.

    This was ok. I think maybe I added too much celery seed to it though. I could not find celery flakes at my grocery store. I may make it again but use less celery seed and use stewed tomatoes without celery.

    I started out to make beef stew, and accidently browned the pork instead. So, I pulled out this recipe. Boy am I glad I did! This is fantastic. Serve over the noodles, or rice is just as good.Tami Mallare
