Primal Pork and Sweet Potato Stew

If you were wondering what to make with the Cajun seasoning recipe I posted last month, wonder no more!  This primal pork and sweet potato stew is full of veggies with a savory seasoning and quick to make too!

Among the many things I like about this recipe, two stand out.  1.  It’s a stand-alone dish, so no rice, potatoes, sauces, dressings or side dishes are needed.  2.  Its heat clears the sinuses without being hot in the mouth.  That describes healing in my book.

The quantities in this recipe are pretty flexible without changing the taste much, so don’t get hung up on purchasing just the right amount of vegetables.

The dish is super easy to make!  Just cut up the ingredients and throw them into a pot!
