Another great recipe from my friend Norma. A hint: choose sweet potatoes with the darker orange skins--they have more flavor and moisture.

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium bowl, combine 3 Tbsp. flour, salt, thyme and pepper; mix well. Add pork cubes. Stir to evenly coat. Place the coated pork chops on waxed paper; reserve remaining flour mixture.
  2. In a Dutch oven or 4-qt. saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add coated prok cubes; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until evenly browned, stirring occasionally. Add all remaining stew ingredients except 2 Tbsp. water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 45 to 60 minutes, or until pork is tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. In a small bowl, combine 2 Tbsp. water and reserved flour mixture; blend until smooth. Add to stew; cook and stir 2 to 4 minutes or until thickened.
