Preparing Crock Pot Tuscan Pork Stew
To add some extra flavor, you can choose to brown the pork in a skillet with some oil and salt and pepper prior to adding it to the crock pot. However, to save some time, you can throw the cubed pork loin right into the slow cooker and let it cook with everything else! Throw the pork, tomatoes, chicken broth, vegetables, and seasonings all together in the crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours.
After 8 hours, if you feel your soup needs to be thicker, add in some cornstarch and continue cooking for 30 more minutes.
How do I freeze Crock Pot Tuscan Pork Stew?
If you are preparing this to freeze for later, just carefully scoop the stew into a freezer-safe container, leaving some room for the soup to expand while freezing. Store up to three months in the freezer. Allow to thaw in the refrigerator the night before you wish to serve it and simply reheat in the microwave or stove top!
