Satisfying. Hearty. Real. Easy. So good for you. And just waiting to be accompanied by a good loaf of bread. What’s left to think about other than the ingredient list?
White beans- cannelli, navy, or Great Northern, your choice. Use cooked beans- cook them right before assembling the stew or do what I did and defrost some cooked beans from the freezer (you could also use canned, but you’ll be paying three times as much…). Boneless pork, cut into cubes. I used pork shoulder. Chopped onions and carrots.
Minced garlic – more is better – and chicken broth. Italian seasoning and red wine. This is gonna be good…
In the last 30 minutes, add chopped kale, chard, or spinach and then set in on high to finish cooking. Who knew such good food could be so easy? Not to mention inexpensive – the whole pot came in under $5.00.PRINT
