Homestyle Pork & Vegetable Stew
This hearty pork stew recipe is filled with meat and vegetables.
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound pork steak, trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 1/4 cups water
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can stewed tomatoes with garlic, herbs and onions, undrained, chopped
2 cups cubed peeled red potatoes
2 medium (1 cup) carrots, sliced 1/2-inch
1 rib (1/2 cup) celery, sliced
1 small (1/2 cup) onion, chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 bay leaf
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired
Place 2 tablespoons flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt in large resealable plastic food bag; add pork cubes. Tightly seal bag; turn bag several times to coat pork well.
Melt butter in 4-quart saucepan until sizzling; add pork. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 7-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 cups water and all remaining ingredients except parsley. Cook over medium-high heat 3-4 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil. Reduce heat to low; continue cooking 30-40 minutes or until vegetables are fork tender. Remove bay leaf.
Combine remaining 1 tablespoon flour and remaining 1/4 cup water in small bowl. Stir into stew. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 3-5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Garnish each serving with parsley, if desired.
