Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine flour and cumin in a resealable plastic bag. Add pork pieces to the plastic bag; shake to coat the pork. Cook the meat and onion, half at a time, in a large cast-iron pot in hot oil until the meat is browned. Drain off fat. Return all the pork and onion to the pot.

  • 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.


Variation: Slow-Cooker Method: Coat the meat and brown with the onion as above. Combine carrot, red potatoes, and sweet potatoes in a 4- to 5 1/2- quart slow cooker. 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.

The dish was tasty but I think I'd eliminate or reduce the cinnamon it was too prominent for our household. Read More
