This started out, in my mind. . .as just meat, potatoes, onions and a little garlic sea salt and pepper, with a thick, simmered-reduced broth for gravy. I bought the meat a while ago and freezer burn was starting to set in. However, I peeked into the 'fridge and there were vegetables just CLAMORING to get into the pot! So. . .Now it's stew! 😃 YEA!! I love spontaneous cooking surprises!
1¾# seasoned pork ribs
1½ onions - in cut ¼ or ⅙ wedges
Next add the vegetables, in the order they're given, which takes their cooking time into account. The pepper actually cooks fast, but if added now, will impart much more flavor. Simmer, covered after each vegetable addition for 10-15 minutes, as you go down the list.
Simmer, covered an additional 20 minutes after the last group of ingredients. You can thicken the 'gravy' if you want, with a little corn flour or corn starch. If you haven't tried cooking with corn flour - (not corn meal) - give it a try! I love it! It gives the food an earthier flavor than wheat flour, and it's gluten-free!
Happy Monday Everyone! 😀 . . . Lin
