6-Ingredient Pork and Cabbage Stew

Pork and cabbage pair so well together! I had some leftover pork loin in the freezer and wanted to just throw a quick stew together to simmer all day while I worked on homework. This turned out amazing!

1) 2 pound pork loin, pork butt or pork tenderloin
2) 1/2 to 1 small head of cabbage, shredded
3) 1-1.5 pounds of carrots, sliced into discs or diced
4) 2-3 green peppers, diced
5) 1 onion, diced
6) 2 cups of beef stock, chicken stock, or water (I actually had 2 cups of leftover broth after making some ribs, so I used that)
Extra: Salt and Pepper

1) Get out your crockpot.
2) Chop up your veggies.
3) Place all your carrots, onions, and green peppers in the crockpot. Add in 1/2 of your shredded cabbage (this should fill up your entire crockpot, basically). Mix to distribute the veggies.
4) Take your pork and bury it in the bottom of the mixed veggies. Season with about 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper.
5) Cook on low for 10-12 hours, stirring every 3-4 hours if you can, to help the veggies on top get cooked too.
6) After about half your cooking time is done, the veggies should have shrank and you should be able to add in the remainder of your cabbage if you'd like. You could omit this and it would still be delicious.
7) Continue to cook until you reach at least 10 hours. You could cook as long as you'd like, it will just get better and better! I started it first thing in the morning, around 7am and it was ready for a late dinner. Once done cooking, take two forks and shred your pork into your stew. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!
