Expert Tips

  • Those who shy away from lima beans may like their subtle flavor in this hearty stew. If you prefer, you can substitute butter beans or sweet soybeans.
  • To ensure even cooking, be sure to cut the pork into pieces of the same size.
  • The pork and sweet potatoes can be cut the night before, wrapped separately in plastic wrap or plastic food-storage bags and refrigerated.
