Green Chile Pork Stew

I believe that soup season has finally arrived In The Middle Of Nowhere! Yesterday I made the most delicious Green Chile Pork Stew. I have been craving some for a few weeks and it was cool enough yesterday to even think of soups.

I never gave a thought to taking pictures as I was preparing the stew, only after all the ingredients were in the pot!

By the time we sat down to eat it was too dark to take good pictures, but I took a couple anyway.

Green Chile Pork Stew

1½ boneless pork (I used 3 thick pork chops) cut into cubes
1 medium onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
12 ounces chopped green chilies
1 can fire-roasted tomatoes
1½ cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon dried Mexican oregano
1 large bay leaf
1 tablespoon cumin
¼ cup chopped cilantro
¼-½ cup lime juice
1 can red beans, drained/rinsed
Salt/pepper to taste (I don't salt while cooking, I leave it to each person)

Brown pork cubes. Add onions, garlic and cook until opaque. I then add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for about two hours or until the pork is fork tender. I try not to let the stew boil, just barely simmer.

Serve with hot cornbread!

I will join Seasonal Sundays/The Tablescaper and Foodie Friday/Rattlebridge Farm.

I pinned this. It is still too hot here, but this sounds delicious, and great for a casual supper with friends.

I forgot to take photos of my dish. I recreated it the best I could, but darn the light was not cooperating.

I'm all about soups in Autumn.

I browned the pork and added the ingredients to my big crock pot. It was complete awesomeness when I got home.
