Warm up with a Meat Chops Stew

Hi all! I’m back from my winter break and ready to take on a new year of blogging. I’m kicking it off with a warming winter recipe; a meat chops stew. When I come home and it’s really cold outside, I love to indulge into something with seasonal products and rich flavours. Slow cooking seems to be a trend at the moment. It brings out the flavours and also let us personally slow down. While the stew is cooking, you have time to relax before dinner. This recipe needs little time in the kitchen and you can even chop the ingredients the night before and throw them into your pan the next day to slowly cook. I used sweet potato, butternut squash, meat chops, onion, cinnamon, pecan nuts, and ingredients to give it the flavours of winter. Scroll down for the complete recipe.
