Pork with green peas stew

ready to eat in 50 min rich in protein calcium iron fiber vitamin a and c pork and green peas stew made from pork frozen green peas garlic onion parsley cilantro best healthy tasty homemade delicious yummy simple easy traditional Bulgarian stew recipe

This traditional Bulgarian stew recipe is made with pork and green peas and ready to eat under 1 hour. It is one pot pork and frozen green peas stew rich in protein, fiber, iron, calcium, potassium, Vitamin A and C.

If you have 10 min. to spare to put this delicious stew together you won’t regret it. We have been cooking this dish for years in my family and it never gets old! I make sure to keep frozen green peas and pork meat in the freezer so anytime I ran out of ideas or cooking ingredients, I know I always have a back up plan for dinner! Even my 5-year-old picky eater kid eats this tasty dish.

I have been a long promoter of food ingredients that complement each other for better nutrition absorption. This dish is one of them. When you pair the iron rich meat with the Vitamin C rich green peas, the iron is absorbed so much better from the body. It is a win – win meal where you enjoy the great taste of the dish but also your body gets much more nutrients out of your meal.

Notes

  • If you are using fresh parsley and cilantro, garnish the dish at the end prior serving
  • I also use pork tenderloin instead of the pork roast sometimes
  • You can also reduce the cook time as the frozen green peas just need to cook for 5 min. I like cooking this dish for longer because the spices and the taste blends up a little bit better.
  • We are extremely excited to announce we are now using the saferecipeguide.org guidelines to make our recipe safe-friendly. We will slowly be incorporating the safe recipe guidelines into our recipe instructions!
