Three Pepper Pork Stew

If you have peppers left over from your summer garden, this spicy pork stew recipe is a great way to use them up. While it does take time for the pork to become tender, it’s mostly hands off time, so that you can do other things while dinner is cooking. Like most stews, this one tastes even better the next day, so don’t be afraid to make it a day early.
