Italian Pork and Pepper Stew ~ Crock Pot Style


This weekend I had a big piece of pork loin staring me in the face and no desire to do much with it. So I dusted off the old crock pot and in went a few ingredients. What came out a few hours later was surprisingly...tasty. Almost like I had slaved-over-it-all-day kind of tasty. Best of all, even the littlest tyke in the house liked it (a huge fete nowadays). I served it with pasta although the hubby insists I serve it with mashed potatoes next time~ and I agree. Give it a try this week. I used pork but I think chicken would work just as well and with a little less cooking time, probably. I have adapted this recipe from the cookbook my sister-in-law bought me a few Christmas' ago called "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook". This recipe is actually quite different than that one, but I wanted to give it kudos for the inspiration.
