Slow cooking results in moist pork and tender sweet potatoes swimming in a savory sauce.

Ingredients

2
pounds pork boneless shoulder, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
2
medium dark-orange sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
1
package (9 ounces) frozen baby lima beans
1 3/4

1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/4
teaspoon dried sage leaves
1/4
cup water
2
tablespoons cornstarch

Directions

  • 1 Sprinkle pork with 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook half of the pork in oil 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pork is brown; place in 3- to 4-quart slow cooker. Repeat with remaining pork.
  • 2 Add sweet potatoes, frozen lima beans, broth, 1/2 teaspoon salt, the thyme and sage to pork in cooker.

  • 4 Stir together water and cornstarch; stir into pork mixture. Increase heat setting to High. Cover and cook about 15 minutes or until mixture is thickened.

Expert Tips

Those who shy away from lima beans may like their subtle flavor in this hearty stew. If you prefer, you can substitute butter beans or sweet soybeans.

To ensure even cooking, be sure to cut the pork into pieces of the same size.

The pork and sweet potatoes can be cut the night before, wrapped separately in plastic wrap or plastic food-storage bags and refrigerated.
