Pork Stew over Noodles

     This meal came about by necessity! We were hungry & I grabbed items that were in my freezer. Next thing I knew we had stew! Yummy too!

1&1/2 LBS Pork Loin cut into 1 inch pieces
1 Bag of Frozen Pepper & Onion Mix
4 Carrots cut in 1 inch Chunks
1 Heaping Cup Frozen Edemame
1 TSP Onion Powder
1 TSP Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 TSP Parsley Flakes
1 TBS Butter
1/4 Cup Cornstarch
1 Box or Bag of your favorite noodles ( to be honest I wanted to use wide egg noodles but only had a 1lb box of Rotini ) cooked to package directions.
Saute pork in butter to sear & brown. add raw Carrots, Onions & Pepper Mix, & Seasonings. Cook slightly tender. Cover with water  & simmer until pork is tender about 1 hour. Start cooking your noodles! Now thicken the meat mixture with the cornstarch stirred into 2/3 cup of cold water until it is smooth. Stir this into your simmering meat to make a nice gravy. Once thick add the frozen Edemame & cook another 15 minutes. Drain the cooked noodles. Serve a nice helping onto your plate & ladle the stew over the noodles! Great with a crusty bread served in the side!
