The delicious flavours of this stew come from the classic Basque dish Piperade.
Besides how good my pork stew tastes, I have another reason why I crave this so much. A bit of dicing and slicing is all it takes to put this together and then you just turn on the slow cooker and walk away until dinner. Who wouldn’t crave something so tasty that’s this easy to make?
- 1 cup strained tomatoes (passata) or tomato sauce
- 4 lb pork shoulder, bone removed, cut into large bite size pieces (see note)
- 2 yellow onions, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tsp dried thyme leaves
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
Note: You can easily remove the bone from your pork shoulder using a sharp knife. Wrap the bone in plastic wrap and freeze. It will come in handy to make a delicious pork bone broth that you can use to make soup. I’ll be posting a soup recipe for you soon.
