THREE SISTERS PORK CHILE STEW

The Iroquois Indians cultivated and used the Three Sisters (corn, squash and beans) in their diet. Traditionally, Three Sisters Soup contains these vegetables in some form without incorporating meat other than chicken broth. I made a hearty version in a form of a stew using pork meat and a variation of the vegetables. Serving it with freshly baked cornbread, my family loved it, especially during the fall and winter seasons.
