Description

This savory, one-pot, slow cooker pork stew is great in autumn with seasonal sweetness from fresh apples and yams. I came up with it years ago, and have perfected it over time. Serve hot in soup bowls with crusty bread, or serve in bread bowls for a special treat.

Ingredients
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ pounds pork tenderloin, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, or more as needed
  • 2 cups vegetable stock, or more as needed
  • 2 yellow onions, each cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 pound peeled baby carrots
  • 2 large yams, cut into bite-sized pieces, or more to taste
  • 1 firm apple, cut into bite-sized pieces
Directions
  1. 1. Mix flour, mustard powder, pepper, and salt together in a large bowl. Add pork and stir until fully coated.
  2. 2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add some pork to the hot oil, making sure skillet is not overcrowded, and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a slow cooker and repeat with remaining pork.
  3. 3. Add remaining flour mixture to the skillet with a little more oil if needed. Cook and stir until lightly browned; transfer to the slow cooker.
  4. 4. Add 2 cups vegetable stock to the slow cooker and stir until all flour lumps are gone. Add onions and wine.
  5. 5. Cover and cook on High for 3 hours. Stir and season with salt and pepper, if necessary. Add more vegetable stock if too thick. Add carrots and yams and cook for another 2 hours. Add apples and cook until tender, 30 to 60 more minutes.
