Hearty Pork Stew with Egg Noodles

pork stew egg noodles

Chicken’s not the only thing I cook in the Crock Pot and have a lot of leftovers afterwards. This also happens with pork. Last night, I was trying to figure out what to do with a large butter container full of leftover pork, and I wanted it to be as healthy as possible, meaning I wanted to include vegetables. I also happened to know that today is National Egg Noodle Day (my family LOVES egg noodles), and I remembered how my mother used to always serve beef stew with noodles. So, my thoughts naturally turned to pork stew. I’d never made it before, and I had no idea how it would turn out, but I figured it was worth a try, anyway. My husband was skeptical about the inclusion of potatoes in something that I was serving with egg noodles, but he was a believer after a bite or two. This turns into a hearty, thick stew, so serve it on a cold night with something light, like crackers or a salad. I served this by itself, but we all had my applesauce brown Betty for dessert afterwards. A true dinner winner!

Hearty Pork Stew with Egg Noodles
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4 servings
 
I loved beef stew and noodle night when I was growing up (although I probably loved beef stew and biscuit night more). I took that idea and switched it up a bit to make my own pork stew served over egg noodles. So, so good!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tsps coriander
  • 2 tsps salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1-2 lbs of shredded cooked pork
  • 1 can sliced carrots (and the liquid)
  • 1 can sweet whole kernel corn (and the liquid)
  • 4 large baking potatoes, diced
  • 4 cups egg noodles
Instructions
  1. In a large stewpot, pour in water and chicken broth.
  2. Add the bay leaf and stir in the coriander, salt, and pepper.
  3. Stir in the pork, carrots, and corn.
  4. Stir in the potato cubes.
  5. Cook over medium high heat for 30 minutes to soften the potatoes and combine the flavors.
  6. Cook the egg noodles according to package directions and spoon evenly into four serving bowls.
  7. Spoon the stew over the noodles, and enjoy!

¬†And here’s a little extra tip: There will be leftover stew if you’re only serving four, so you might want to cook a few extra noodles to take this for lunch the next day, like my husband did!

  1. What a great use for leftovers. I like to cook once and eat twice. Thanks for sharing on Creative K Kids Tasty Tuesdays. I hope you will join us next week.
