Anything Stew


  • Oil or Butter
  • 1 lb of Zinn Farms stew, Chorizo Sausage, Hot Italian Sausage or Mild Italian Sausage
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 Cups of Vegetables – Carrots, Parsnips, Butternut Squash, Fresh / Frozen Peas, or Fresh or Frozen Beans or a combination of:
    • 1 28 Oz Can Diced Tomatoes
    • 1 5.5 Oz Can Tomato Paste
    • 2 Cups of red potatoes or sweet potatoes
    • 1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed (optional)
    • 3 Cups of Chicken or Vegetable Stock


  • Heat a large heavy bottom pot on a stove, add oil or butter
  • Add your choice of Zinn Farms pork for 4-5 minutes, until browned
  • Add onion and garlic, cook for a few minutes until onions are softened
  • Add vegetables and cook for five minutes
  • Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, potatoes, quinoa, and vegetable stock and bring to a boil.
  • Add more stock as needed to submerge all other ingredients
  • Season to taste

This stew is very forgiving. I change the volume and combination of vegetables and potatoes each time I make it depending on what I have handy in my kitchen. Use home-made stock with Zinn Farms chicken bones (recipe found here) for best results. Try making a double batch and freeze for later.
