Pork Stew

Ingredients:

1 Tbs. OO (Olive Oil)
2 lb. Pork Tenderloin, cubed
4 large carrots, cut into 1" pieces
9 "baby" Yukon potatoes, cut in 1/2
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup acorn squash, seeded and chopped
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. marjoram (fresh has more flavor)
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes (or a pizza parlor packet is a convenient amt.)
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup brown gravy (1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup flour 2 cups water, boiling)

Method:

Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Brown pork cubes. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients except for broth and gravy. Pour into crockpot.

For gravy, use pan that pork was browned in. Melt butter. Mix in flour. Pour in water, stir and reduce.

Combine both broth and gravy, pouring over items already in crockpot. Cover; cook on Low for 8-10 hours or High for 4-5 hours. Serve with a heavy bread, peasant's loaf or asiago. Serves six.
