So, we launched the new year with, among other things, a new recipe. We made some beef stew recently, but I was still in a stew mood and wanted to try something different. I happened to see a recipe on allrecipes.com that got me thinking about a pork and green chile stew, and I used that as my starting point. The recipe I started with looked essentially sound, but I knew that certain touches - like browning the meat beforehand and adding some tomato paste - would make it more flavorful. I also decided to toss in a Serrano chile for some extra heat. The beans are completely my own touch; I know from previous recipes that cannelloni beans go well with both pork and chiles, so they seemed a good touch here.
Add the sweet potato and oregano to the pork mixture. Stir, cover and cook on high 5-6 hours. Stir in the cannellini beans. Cover, cook for 10-15 minutes. Serve topped with shredded cheese.
