Here are a few questions you might have before getting started on this one:

What cut is pork stew meat?

Pork shoulder, Boston butt, or can be used. You ideally want flavorful cuts that take a long time to cook and get tender. Even pork tenderloin works well if you want a shorter cook time.

How do you make pork soft and tender?

It depends on what cut you’re referring to. For the best pork chops you want to make sure you don’t overcook them or they’ll get dry. Larger pieces need to cook low and slow which is why they are great as a Crockpot recipe.

Is pork healthier than beef?

That is a big question and hard to answer quickly. Pork has been said to be a bit more nutritional, but beef has more Iron and Zinc.

These are the ingredients we used. Of course you can really pack it with vegetables. Use whatever type of potatoes you prefer. Red potatoes are great as well.
