Sage ‘N’ Rosemary Pork Stew

This stew satisfies the appetites of my husband and son, who are real meat-and-potatoes men. It's easy on the family budget, yet is special enough to serve to guests.

    I love this recipe! It got raves at my house. Since the first time, I have also made the same recipe using chick instead of pork (leftovers from a rotisserie chicken) and it's terrific. I've also made it with fresh sage and fresh rosemary (use a bit more than the dried version).

    I was inititally going to give this recipe a so-so rating. However, my husband ate the leftovers after the stew had sat around for 2-3 days (he NEVER wants to throw anything out), and lo and behold he said it was delicious! Most stews improve with standing for 1-2 days, and this must be one of them. I also used leftover pork roast, along with some pork ends. I'll bet sweet potatoes or yams would be really good in this stew, too, instead of red potatoes!

    I adjusted this recipe using left over pork roast. I also adjusted it to serve 4. Used russet potatoes and frozen mixed vegetables as that is what I had on hand. And it took less time as the meat was already cooked. It was very tasty.Always nice to have something to make using the left over roast.
