Sweet Potato Pork Stew

I'm an avid recipe collector and have fun trying new dishes. Fortunately, my family doesn't mind experimenting with new tastes. Everyone loves the blend of flavors in this stew.

    First time i made it as directed, a little to sweet for our taste. This time i used a touch of honey and it was perfect. I love it for the crock pot too!

    My husband normally doesn't like pork, but he loved this dish and so did I. It definitely is a keeper.

    Very hearty and satisfying! I will use a little less sugar the next time. The sweet potatoes made it pretty sweet. I used pearl onions instead of small onions quartered. I think they held together better and gave the stew an interesting texture twist.

    It was absolutely wonderful, we enjoyed it very much. I did change it a bit and substituted splenda brown sugar for regular brown sugar. My son says he can hardly wait for me to make it again.

    Fantastic! Two of my favorite foods in one stew. I halved the recipe (I'm single) and it is great. The next time I make it I may add one chopped tart apple.
