Pork Stew

Free of: Gluten, Corn, Soy, Dairy, Egg, Nut, Peanut, Fish, Shellfish
     I grew up on beef stew and I always liked it.  Of course, when I made it for my own kids, they wouldn't touch it.  So for years now, beef stew has vanished from my house.  I only enjoy it when my mother makes it and she saves me a bowl.
      I tried stew again after all these years with this recipe, hoping that maybe they wouldn't recognize it as a stew.  I proudly called it Pork soup.  (Doesn't sound nearly as appetizing with that name.)  Well, I cooked up a batch, and surprisingly, five out the eight kids loved it.  They even went back for seconds!  I got the recipe out of the December 2009 Food Network Magazine, but it is also posted on their website.

I made some ingredient changes to make it gluten free:

  • Instead of flour - 1/4 cup arrowroot starch
  • I didn't have a can of diced tomatoes- so I used fresh tomatoes and diced them.  This avoided the citric acid that could be derived from corn in the can of tomatoes.
