Harvest Stew

Harvest Stew

Dec 7 2015


Serves 5-6

I love this kind of hearty dish when it gets colder because it is comforting but still healthy. The other great aspect is that it takes 10 minutes to prep in the morning, I put everything in the slow cooker and when I get home, dinner is ready.

When I plan my week and I see that some nights will be super busy with after-school activities and other stuff, I often go for this kind of dish. Everybody likes it and I don’t stress about getting dinner ready!


  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 1/2 lb of boneless pork, cut in cubes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 3 cups of chicken stock
  • 2 cups of butternut squash, cubed
  • 2 cups of carrots, cubed
  • 2 potatoes, cubed
  • 1 bay leaf
  • A couple of fresh rosemary sprig
  • A couple of fresh thyme sprig
  • Salt and pepper


Sauté the shallot, garlic and meat with the oil for 5 minutes in a pan until the meat has a nice brown color on each side.

Put everything in the slow cooker and set up on low for 6-8 hour.

Et Voila, Bon Appétit!
