Making a Delicious, Satisifying Pork Stew

Any main dish loaded with delicious goodness and prepared in a single pot is a big hit in our home. We’ve used these whole flat beans in other recipes, such as our cooked flat beans and tomato sidedish, they are full of nutrients and have a sweet, appealing taste. And what’s better than working one large pot for the entire stew, reducing the kitchen clean up afterwards?

There is something comforting and completey satisfying when it comes to single pot meals. Similar to our ground beef and potato casserole, Instant Pot bean soup recipe and our classic goulash, this flat beans and pork stew is slowly cooked over the stove top in a large pot.
