Green Chili Pork Stew Recipe:

You are going to love this twist on the traditional stew. This stew is loaded with chunks of pork, potatoes and onions. It is topped with the Salsa Verde sauce that helps combined all the flavors for an amazing stew recipe.

Cooking the pork in the crock pot allows it to be so tender that it literally melts in your mouth. It is the perfect soup for those cold fall days when all you want to do is curl up on the couch.

This stew has become a family favorite and it is requested several times a month during the winter.

A good Crock Pot is a must!

If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Instant Pot Aura Crockpot. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker.

However any type of crock pot will work for this easy pork stew recipe.

Ingredients for green chili pork stew:

  • Lean Pork Chops
  • Flour or Cornstarch
  • Salt and Black Pepper
  • Minced Garlic
  • Yellow Onion
  • White Potatoes
  • Salsa Verde or Green Chile Sauce
  • Chicken Broth
  • Fresh Green Cilantro to top

How to make Crock Pot Green Chili Stew recipe:

  • In a large bag coat the pork chops with the flour. We like to season the pork with a little salt and pepper before placing in the bag.

  • Top with cilantro and serve with warm flour tortillas. It is that easy and so delicious!

How to thicken the stew?

If you prefer a thicker stew, you can by adding about 2 tablespoons corn starch to cold water in a separate bowl. Make sure you mix well so there are no lumps.

Then pour this mixture into your stew and mix. Cook for additional 10 minutes and this should thicken your stew. It does not change the taste of your stew.

What to serve with green chili stew:

Topping Ideas:

  • Shredded Cheese

  • Fresh Lime Juice
  • Cilantro
  • Diced Green Onions

How to make Green Chili Stew on the Stovetop:

Green Chili Stew is the perfect stew to make on your stovetop. It is great because if you don’t have time in the morning you can easily cook it when you get home. This is also a great recipe to meal prep for the week.

Following the same steps for the crock pot version, I will still coat the pork with flour in a zip lock bag. In the large stock pot, I will add in a little onion and cook the onion and garlic. Then toss everything in the large pot except the potatoes and cook. Bring to a boil on high heat and simmer on medium heat for about 45 minutes.

Finally, add in the potatoes in the last 15 minutes to cook until they are tender.

Do you have to use Pork Chops?

This recipe calls for pork chops but you could easily substitute pork roast or leftover shredded pork. It is very easy to use what you already have. We love recipes that we can change but still get a good result.

The potatoes help to stretch the meat and make the meal so filling and delicious. This recipe calls for white potatoes but you easily use Yukon Gold Potatoes or Red Potatoes.

Use what you have and make this amazing and tasty meal. It is so delicious. We love this recipe and it has always turned out great.

Tips for the best Green Chili Pork Stew:

  • The tender pork and diced tomatoes are so delicious and the best comfort food.  Try adding diced tomatoes to the green enchilada sauce for a change. We love recipes that we change up.
  • We have used the fire roasted tomatoes before and it really was so yummy with the chicken broth and pork stew.
  • This recipe like many calls for diced onions. Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions.
  • Add in some chile peppers for a spicier stew. Or some chopped jalapeno’s would give it the extra kick of spice.
  • If you don’t have any pork chops, you can use a pork shoulder or a a pork roast. Just cut into bite size pieces before cooking
  • If you want a more authentic green chili, you can buy fresh green chilies. Then roast the green chilies until the outside is dark. Once done roasting peel the skins off, and dice up and add it into the chili.
  • If you are not a fan of pork, you can use ground beef instead.
