Quick Pork Stew With Peppers and Tomatoes

"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."

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
