Pork Stew with Tomatoes Recipe

Cook Time: 1 hour 10 minutes


Servings: 4


  • 5 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
  • 1 red onion, halved 4 times
  • 1 plump red tomato, halved 4 times
  • 350g pork tenderloin, cut in chunks
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 2 pinches cayenne powder


  1. Season the pork with a tbsp of freshly ground pepper.
  2. With a wok or a deep pan, saute the garlic in hot oil.
  3. When the garlic turns golden, fry the pork on all sides.
  4. Season the dish with 1 tbsp fish sauce.
  5. When the pork cooks, put the onions, tomatoes, carrots and potatoes in.
  6. Season the dish with rest of the pepper powder and salt. Cover and let the dish simmer under low heat.
  7. When the onions cook, add water. Allow to boil for 30 minutes. Do not stir.
  8. By this time, the tomatoes should be soft enough to crush. Extract their juices with a ladle against the pork. Add the tomato sauce.
  9. Season once more with fish sauce, then with cayenne powder. Let the dish cook for another 20 minutes.
