Recipe of the Week – Pork and Sweet Potato Stew (Crockpot Recipe)

Submitted by Dave Hutchins

Ingredients:

1 pound boneless pork shoulder roast

3 to 4 sweet potatoes, peeled

1 large carrot, diced

1 stalk celery, diced

1medium onion, chopped (or 1 Tablespoon dried onion)

1/3 cup dried apples

1/2 teaspoon dried sage

1/2 teaspoon rosemary

2 cups chicken broth

1 cup apple-cranberry juice

Directions:

Spray the inside of a 3-4 quart crockpot with cooking spray. Cut the pork and sweet potatoes into chunks and place them in the bottom of the crockpot. Add carrots, celery, onions, dried apples, sage, and rosemary. Pour chicken broth and apple-cranberry juice over everything and gently mix together. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

During the last hour, if desired, you can make a paste of 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and water and add it to the stew to thicken.

Note: can use a whole apple (peeled and diced) in placed of dried apples; however, do not add until the last hour or so of cooking.

Enjoy!
