This perfectly Fall stew comes from my Simply in Season cookbook. Everyone in my family loved it!
2 Tbsp butter
1 1/2 pounds boneless pork, cut in 1/2-inch chunks
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups chicken broth
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp rubbed or ground sage
1 bay leaf
1 medium butternut squash, peeled and chopped in bite-size chunks
2 medium apples, peeled and roughly chopped
Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add pork, onion, and garlic and sauté until meat is no longer pink; drain off fat.
Add broth and spices (including bay leaf). Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add squash and apples and simmer, uncovered, until squash is tender. About 20 minutes.
Discard bay leaf and serve.
