Tuscan Pork Stew

What do you do with leftover orange marmalade the last recipe called for???? Well I have one!





In a frying pan:

2 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 lbs of pork cut into 1" cubes

Brown meat and transfer to a crock pot.

In the used frying pan:

2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup red wine or another 1/2 cup broth
1/4 cup orange marmalade
(I used a small can of drained mandarin oranges that I processed in a food processor)

Stir well and pour over meat in crock pot.

Add:

1 large can diced tomatoes WITH juices
1 large green pepper diced large
2 cups frozen beans or stir fry blend
2 minced garlic cloves
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp fennel seed (omitted)
1 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp chilli flakes

Stir well. Refrigerate if you want for next meal.

OR

Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. (I cooked on high 4-6) ***Uncover 1/2 way through if there seems to be a lot of liquid.

Combine:

2 tbsp cornstach
2 tbsp cold water

Stir until smooth and add gradually to stew to thicken.

Cover and cook on high for another 30 minutes.

Serve with fettuccine or on egg noodles.

"BON APPETIT!"

  1. The second time I made this I used green tomatoes. It really needs the red ones for visual appeal! Still tastes great!
