Spicy V8 braised pork and peppers

Irisa Raina 9


This could also be done in a crock pot, if you prefer.
I had the juice that I drained from a can of pumpkin pie mix so I used that, if you don’t have any just use chicken stock.
I served this with fluffy rice, but you could serve this with mashed potatoes or pasta.
I am fortunate that I can get great fresh vegetables’ all year long, and when I do I clean them and prep them and put them in the freezer. When I need them they are ready to go.
Please excuse the plating job, the ol' hands were acting up today, and by the time I got done cooking dinner, I just wanted to get it on the plate.
