The Lighter Alternative to Pulled Pork
For times when you want to eat a comforting, spicy and rich pork dish without feeling totally "blah" after, Lewis' spiced stew is just the thing. It includes cubes of lean pork, as well as white mushrooms, carrots, celery, sweet potatoes and kale, all in a tomato broth spiced with chili powder, allspice and cinnamon. The all-in-one aspect of the dish (you get protein, carbs and veggies) means you won't need any rolls, coleslaw or other additions to make this a perfectly satisfying meal.
