Awesome Pork Stew

Well it is cold and wintery here in Adelaide, Australia - so of course it is perfect weather for a lovely warm stew. I was planning on making a beef stew - but it turns out I am not very good at reading labels in the freezer so we have a lovely tender pork stew instead.

Pork Stew
Serves 6

600g Pork Scotch Fillet, cubed
2 tbsp Wholemeal Flour
2 tsp Oregano
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
2 tbsp Olive Oil
2 Onions, diced
4 Cloves of Garlic, crushed
2 Stalks of Celery, diced
2 Small Carrots, diced
750ml Beef Stock
200g Mushrooms, sliced
140g Tomato Paste
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
410g Can of Butter Beans
150g Green Beans, chopped

Combine the flour, oregano, salt and pepper on a plate - and toss the pork in the flour mixture. Heat the olive oil in a large sauce pan over a medium-high heat and brown the pork in batches. Remove the pork and set aside on a plate.

Reduce the heat to medium and cook the onions, garlic, celery and carrot with any remaining flour mixture until the vegetables start to turn golden. Add the stock, mushrooms, tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce, and bring to the boil.

Reduce the heat to a simmer, add the pork and simmer for 1 hour or until the pork is tender. Add the butter beans and green beans to the pot and cook until the green beans are just tender.

Serve with some yummy crusty bread and enjoy!
