Ingredients

1 (3-lb.) boneless pork loin roast
1 tablespoon barbecue seasoning
1 (18-oz.) bottle smoky mesquite barbecue sauce
1 (14-oz.) can chicken broth
1 (32-oz.) container chicken broth
2 (16-oz.) bags frozen vegetable soup mix
2 (14.5-oz.) cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes*
1 cup frozen whole kernel corn
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (24-oz.) package frozen olive oil, rosemary, and garlic oven fries
1 (22-oz.) package frozen sweet potato fries

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Rinse and pat roast dry. Rub barbecue seasoning over roast. Place in an aluminum foil-lined 13- x 9-inch pan. Pour barbecue sauce and 1 (14-oz.) can chicken broth over roast. Cover tightly with aluminum foil.

2. Bake at 350° for 1 1/2 hours or until fork tender. Remove roast from pan, reserving drippings in pan. Shred roast with 2 forks.

3. Carefully pour drippings into a Dutch oven. Add shredded pork, 1 (32-oz.) container chicken broth, and next 4 ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, prepare oven fries and sweet potato fries according to package directions; serve with stew.

*2 (14.5-oz.) cans diced tomatoes may be substituted.
