Pork & Chickpea Stew

The theme for Monday posts in January is Stew.

I love stew.

It’s easy to make and easy to make enough for more than 1 meal.

The meat, vegetables, and flavors can vary according to taste and mood.

Stew is, by definition, (WiKi): a combination of solid food ingredients that have been cooked in liquid and served in the resultant gravy. A stew needs to have raw ingredients….

The herbs and spices can be anything you like.

Pork & Chickpea Stew

Because I used pork tenderloin this stew does not require long cooking – so I made it in a skillet rather than a pot.

  1. This looks delicious but I’d have to leave the chickpeas out. I still haven’t gotten past the disastrous gray chickpea soup. I just am not ready to eat them yet. :/ And I followed the recipe exactly!
