  • Stir in undrained tomatoes, the water, salt, ginger, cinnamon, sugar, and pepper. Stir in carrots, red potatoes, sweet potato, and green beans. Bring mixture just to boiling.

  • Cover and bake for about 1 hour and 20 minutes or until the meat and vegetables are tender. Sprinkle individual servings with cilantro (or parsley). If desired, serve with yogurt.

Top with the browned pork mixture. Combine tomatoes, water, salt, ginger, cinnamon, sugar and pepper; pour atop the pork. Cover and cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours or on High for 4 to 5 hours, adding the green beans for the last 30 minutes. Serve as above.
