Crock Pot Pork Stew Tips:

  • Stew Broth – The cornstarch mixture thickens the stew.  If you prefer a thinner stew, then do not add the cornstarch mixture to the crock pot. 
  • Keep Slow Cooker Close – To keep the heat in and for the ingredients to cook evenly, keep lid close.

How to Store:

Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. This stew is amazing the next day as the flavors marinate together overnight.

You can even freeze the leftover stew. Place in a freezer safe container and freeze up to 4 months. To reheat, let the frozen stew thaw overnight and then reheat on the stovetop.

Crockpot Pork Stew Variations:

  • Change the Pork – You can easily use any type of pork in this recipe.  I used a pork shoulder, but you can use pork stewing meat, pork loin or a pork butt as well. 
  • Change the Meat – If you prefer not to use pork, you can use ground beef, chicken, or lamb.
  • Add Beans – For even a more heartier stew add in some beans. We recommend pinto, black beans, or any that you have on hand.
