Quick Pork Stew With Peppers and Tomatoes

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 40 mins

This is a pretty, quick and tasty stew. I like to serve it over egg noodles and topped with parmesan cheese. If I'm in the mood for spicy and smokey, I add one or two finely chopped chipotles with some of the adobo sauce when I add the tomatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim fat from pork and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a heavy bottomed pot over medium high heat.
  3. Add the pork and cook for about 3 minutes, turning until browned on all sides.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium, add the onion and peppers and cook for about 5 minutes, or until onions have softened.
  5. Add the garlic after the onions and peppers have cooked for 2 minutes.
  6. Stir in the tomatoes and bring to a boil.
  7. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  8. Taste it once simmering and adjust the salt and pepper to suite you taste.
  9. Add the chopped basil and parsley, stir once and serve.
  10. Note: If using dried basil and parsley, add to the pot when you add the tomatoes.
  11. Enjoy!

This wonderful dish was our dinner last night. I found a pretty package of pork stew meat in the grocery store this week and this was the recipe I chose from the search. The dish was absolutely beautiful. The sauce was a little thin, so I simply added about 3/4 cup uncooked pasta right at the end and simmered this until the pasta was done. Made a beautiful presentation with the red tomatoes and green and yellow bell peppers. Sorry about not having a picture.....camera broke following a sudden stop by the floor.

This was the best! I had a big pack of pork chops in the freezer that I needed to use and I'm not big on pork chops normally but I found this recipe and had to try it. I deboned the chops and cut into 1 inch pieces. We did simmer it longer (we got busy with other things) but it was sooo good! Thanks for posting! I will def. be making this again!
