One Pot Meal: Hainan Pork Stew

Hainan Pork Stew

This is a great one pot meal if you lack time to cook. A hearty and delicious stew made with pork and vegetables. You can substitute pork with chicken or beef.

Meat stewed until tender, with melt in the mouth potatoes and carrots. My son loves this dish, even though he dislikes carrots and onion. He enjoyed ladling the thick gravy over steamed white rice. 😄

This stew can be frozen and reheated for a quick meal later. It can keep for several days in the fridge or up to a month in the freezer. But usually my pot of Hainan pork stew will be eaten within two days. 😄😄
