Pork & Green Chile Stew
Trim fat from meat. Cut the meat into 1/2-inch pieces. Cook half of the meat in a large skillet in hot oil over medium-high heat until browned. Using a slotted spoon, remove the meat from the skillet. Repeat with the remaining meat and the onion. Drain off fat. Transfer all of the meat and the onion to a 3 1/2- to 4 1/2-quart slow cooker.Advertisement
