Gluten Free One Pot Spicy Pork and Sweet Potato Stew

Gluten Free One Pot Spicy Pork and Sweet Potato Stew

You’re going to love this delicious gluten free stew with its unique blend of pork, sweet potatoes, and a medley of spices. Unlike tougher cuts of pork, tenderloin can be cooked relatively quickly. That means you don’t have to let it simmer for hours to get melt-in-your-mouth results.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

Tip: Like most tomato-based dishes, this flavorful stew tastes even better the next day – so consider making a double batch to enjoy later!


2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 medium red onion, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1¼ lb. pork tenderloin, cut into 1” cubes
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1” cubes
1 15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 t. ground cumin
½ t. chili powder (Check Labels)
2 t. Italian seasoning (Check Labels)
½ t. crushed red pepper flakes
2 bay leaves
1 14-oz. can crushed tomatoes
2 c. low-sodium chicken stock (Check Labels)
¼ c. fresh parsley, chopped, divided


Heat olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add red onion, celery, and garlic. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Cook, stirring frequently, until the veggies soften and develop a bit of color, approximately 3-4 minutes.

Add pork tenderloin and sweet potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat begins to brown, around 2-3 minutes.

Add black beans and spices and stir to combine. Cook for another 30 seconds, or just until the spices become fragrant. Taste and season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.

Add crushed tomatoes and chicken stock to the Dutch oven and increase heat to high. Bring to boil, and then reduce heat to medium. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until pork is cooked through and the sweet potatoes are fork-tender, approximately 13-15 minutes.

Remove from heat and discard bay leaves. Stir in 3 tablespoons of fresh parsley. Taste and adjust seasonings, as desired.

Top with remaining fresh parsley for garnish and serve immediately.

Dutch ovens are my favorite. If I had to only keep one pot in my kitchen this would be it! They tend to run a little on the expensive side of things but its completely worth the price for a good one and it will last you a life time! I have the Le Creuset Dutch Oven and would suggest it to anyone!
