Breakin' out the slow cooker again

I really need to work on my food photography!  What a terrible picture of a great dish. This is a Southwestern pork stew that I made n the slow cooker.  It was a yucky rainy morning and to me that just calls for comfort food and that calls for the slow cooker.  I am contemplating not even posting this because I am not at all happy with this picture - but I'll keep writing and decide later if I'll hit post.  I promise you this dish taste better than it looks. Enjoy!

Southwestern Pork Stew
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 lbs of pork either boneless shoulder, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces or you can buy pork for stewing
1/4 cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 can chili beans in sauce, undrained (15 ounces)
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups of frozen corn, thawed
Assorted toppings
diced tomatoes, diced jalapenos, shredded cheese, sour cream
serve with warm tortillas

Place onions and garlic in slow cooker. Top with pork. Mix the cornmeal with the spices and sprinkle over pork, mix to coat.  Add beans, tomato and broth and mix well.
Cover and cook on low heat for 8 hours.
Stir in corn and cook for an additional half hour.

  1. I think it looks super yummy and would eat it in a heart beat. Makes me wonder how much more yummy it looks in real life. It's got all the yummy stuff: cheese, tomatoes, a tortilla, some beans. I would have to throw some sour cream on top and be in heaven. I hope I'll attempt this this winter. Thanks
