This is an easy pork stew, perfect for a fall or winter meal. Serve this pork stew with crusty bread and a tossed salad.

Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound lean boneless pork shoulder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 teaspoon dried leaf basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth or water
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced (1/2 inch thickness) carrots
  • 1 bell pepper, green or red, cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine

Preparation:

Cut pork into 1-inch cubes, trimming and discarding fat. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and cook the pork, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Stir in the onion and celery and cook for 2 minutes longer. Add the herbs, pepper, and broth or water. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer for about 1 hour, or until pork is tender.
