Pork and Potato Stew

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time45 mins
Total Time1 hr
Servings: 4 servings


  • 1 lb lean pork meat I used pork tenderloin
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 lb potatoes pealed and chopped in 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup canned chopped tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • hot sauce to taste
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • chopped parsley
  • 3 cup water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped


  • In a large skillet heat the oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot enough, add the chopped onion and cook until onion is translucent, do not burn it.
  • Chop the pork meat into 1 inch cubes. Add the pork and garlic to the onion. For this stew I used these gorgeous baby yellow potatoes, which I just cleaned really well and peeled, however, you may use any potato you like. Add the potatoes and red pepper to the skillet.
  • At this point we just want to cook the meat until it's done, but we do not want to burn the potatoes, so about 10 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes, hot sauce, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper and water to the skillet and stir. Once it's boiling turn down the heat and cover with a lid and let simmer for about 30 to 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked through.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley and sour cream if preferred.
