Pork and Apple Stew

We’ve all been there, we arrive home after a long day, starving and in search of something to eat.  For some reason, these days always seem to be the ones where we haven’t been to the grocery store to stock up on supplies.  However, even with only a few ingredients, you can still pull together a very quick and satisfying paleo friendly dish like this one. 

The inspiration for this meal came from some grass-fed pork that I had recently picked up at the market.  By paring this with the few lonely items that I had left in my refrigerator that included a bag of broccoli slaw, kale (I love kale!), and a few apples, I was able to create a very satisfying dish with a touch of sweetness in less time that it would have taken to order in takeout!   

Ingredients (4-6 servings):

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 lbs grass fed pork, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 bag broccoli slaw
  • 2 apples, cored and cut into 1 inch chunks.  I used gala apples because that is what I had, but granny smith would be nice too
  • 1 bunch of kale, washed, stems removed and torn into pieces

Cook it up:

  1. In large saucepan or dutch oven, heat oil
  2. Season pork with salt and pepper, and meat to pan and brown, turning occasionally for about 6 minutes.  Remove and set aside.
  3. Add onion to pan, saute until softened, about 3 minutes
  4. Add chicken stock, water, rosemary, Dijon mustard and bring to a boil
  5. Add pork, broccoli slaw and apples to pan and simmer until apples are tender ~ 10 minutes
  6. Add kale and simmer until kale has wilted.  Enjoy!  

Not a fan of broccoli slaw, try adding shredded cabbage  or any other veggie instead.
