@jaynie Style Pork Stew

Pork Stew


A couple of days ago @jaynie posted her French Style Pork Stew recipe. She had me salivating like Pavlov's dog! I just had to give it a try.

I used similar ingredients, but do to my limited space and patience, my cooking method was completely different. I used my pressure cooker for this! Everything was ready in less than an hour.

Here's what I used:

1 lb Pork loin
6 oz Sliced ham
1 med onion
1 bunch bok choy
1 stalk celery
1 pack diced sweet potato
1 pack mini carrots
1 bunch cilantro
32 oz chicken stock
3 sprigs fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
sea salt

Here's how I made it:

I couldn't find any pre-cubed pork so I bought a couple of thick sliced pork loin steaks


I cut up the steak into 1 inch cubes


I browned the pork cubes in two batches


After browning the meat, I browned the onion. Added the meat back, chicken stock, thyme and bay leaf to the pot. I covered and locked the pot and brought it up to pressure. Set the timer to 30 minutes.


Meanwhile I prepped the veggies.


Chopped the bok choy


Sliced the ham into strips and chopped the cilantro


Sliced the celery


When the pork was ready. I added the veggies to the pot.


Gave it a good stir


Covered, locked and cooked for an additional 10 minutes.

Plated it up and served it with a couple of slices of bread.

Jaynie showed me what you posted last night and today I read your post -the photos were fabulous and your plating superb!!


Thank you for your comments @lizziesworld! Jaynie keeps me motivated!


The lighting in these photos is fantastic! What's your secret?

Also, do you find the pressure cooker is worth it? Would owning one make a rice cooker redundant? It's long been on my "shiny things I might want one day" list, but I'm hesitant to pull the trigger (and dedicate even more of our already perilously limited space to another cubic foot of plastic and metal).


I don't do anything special for lighting. For my food photos I use my Canon Powershot G7X and make adjustments in Photoshop.

I love my pressure cooker! I've had it for about 5 years now. I haven't used it to make rice, but it's great for stews, pot roasts, chili and soups. Mine is a NuWave which I use on my induction cooktop. I live in a motorhome so my space is limited too. This works out well for me. I did give away my rice cooker.


Well it sounds like you’re in more dire straits than I am when it comes to available counter space! Although the trade off apparently is that you have a bright home 🙂

Say hi to your mom! xoxoxox

I agree that the best cooking tool created is the pressure cooker. Think it's designed for working people like us...


Thank you for your comments @ireenchew! I really love mine!

As always, you make it look so easy and delicious 😊


Thank you for your comments!

Gracias por compartir la receta, voy a intentarla, se ve muy rico.



It looks like a dish I used to eat a lot in Thailand that would cost about a dollar


Cool! Thank you for you comments!

I really need to see about getting a pressure cooker someday, Roger, if only so I can steal... I mean, make all your recipes! 😊


This is a really easy recipe! Pressure cookers are great! I love mine! Thank you for your comments!

I've never used a pressure cooker. What's the approximate time conversion?


It's at least half the time. But it really depends on what you are making. Veggies cook up in no time. Maybe 10 minutes for potatoes and carrots. You don't eat meat, right? So it might not be worth while for you. It's real advantage is for tougher cuts of meat like stews or pot roasts and for homemade soup stock.


10 minute potatoes might be nice...but typically if I'm going to cook I've got plenty of time to cook potatoes anyway. :-) And yes, you are correct in that I don't eat meat. I used to love my crock pot though. I can only imagine how much more tender everything would be in a pressure cooker.


Right! If you're not cooking meat, there's probably no advantage to using a pressure cooker.

That looks mighty delicious! Im always looking for more ways of making food. Thanks to you and Jaynie I have one more recipe to try. :D


Thank you! This recipe is definitely a keeper!

That really looked delicious, I am usually a beef stew guy if I eat stew but I would give this a try for sure.


This is a nice alternative to beef. Although it would probably work with beef as well! Thank you for your comments!


You are most welcome, I don't eat near enough "white meat" and this looked like a good way to change that. Thank you.

Looks delicious Roger! And I'm with you; if I can do it in the pressure cooker, I will. It is the one and only thing I wish I would have brought with me here. I'm sure I can find one if I search for it, but you know, I've been busy swimming and playing with dogs haha

I'm submitting your post to c-squared; hopefully they stop by and show their appreciation too :)


Thank you so much Lynn! You are so sweet! I appreciate your c-squared submission!
