I was looking for another stew/soup to use brussel sprouts in. I made a few adjustments when making it: I marinated the pork loin for 30 minutes before browning. Scooped the pork out of the pot and sauteed the onions, leeks, garlic and cabbage in butter for 5-7 minutes then deglazed them with a lager style beer. Let that cook off for a minute and then added a mixture of chicken and beef broth. I omitted the green pepper, as I felt it threw off the beautiful balance between the cabbage family and the lily family. Added frozen broccoli and cauliflower, brussel sprouts and spinach to the mixture as I was adding the pork back in. Dropped the potatoes in within the last 30 minutes of cooking, they gave it a really creamy consistency. Served this with a nice crusty French bread and lots of butter as I felt I got my vegetable quota in with this stew, YUM! Thank you Colleen for sharing your recipe.


What a great, healthy recipe! However, I did notice some issues here. First, it took me 45 minutes to chop everything up, as opposed to the 20 minute prep time listed. Also, this recipe makes a LOT more than 6 servings! Still, it's a good recipe. I used chicken breast in place of the pork, and was generous with the spices and wine...came out tasting great!


My finicky family loved this recipe. Yes, it is bland, so I too improvised. I used mushroom soup and added half a bag of frozen spinach. Also added a teaspoon of seasoned salt and about a cup of shredded, cheddar/monterey jack cheese. Great, easy recipe for personalizing to your family's preference. This one can take almost any variation!
