Pork and Bell Pepper Stew

Add diced jalapeño pepper to this stew if you like a little heat. Use pork loin, rather than tenderloin, because it stays tender during the long cooking time.

  1. Sprinkle pork with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
