Sure, you could have a traditional beef stew. But this easy pork stew might just sway you to a leaner protein!

There’s no need to stew low and slow all day. This stew is ready in under an hour!

It’s as simple as cooking cubed pork and adding the remaining ingredients. 

In the last few minutes of cooking, add veggies like cauliflower, carrots, or peas.

4. Pork and Napa Cabbage Soup

Cabbage might be an acquired taste, but add a bit of pork in, and it’s basically irresistible!

Check out this tasty Cantonese soup and see what I mean.

Ground pork is the central flavor of this recipe.

Though, the cabbage, shitake mushrooms, and potatoes add some heartiness to the broth.

Because it’s all made in one pot, you’ll have a beautiful meld of flavors.

You could also use a pressure cooker for an even faster cook time!

5. Cambodian Pork Rice Soup

Sometimes, I crave comfort food but don’t actually want it to be super heavy.

What’s more comforting than a warm bowl of spicy soup?

The ginger and brine broth are my favorite part of this soup. Pile in the remaining ingredients and enjoy!

Every step of this recipe is worth the effort for a bowl of festive soup like this!

6. Pulled Pork Vegetable Soup

Occasionally, I’ll make a big pork roast for BBQ pork sandwiches.

With the leftovers, I opt for this hearty and tasty vegetable soup!

This truly is the best vegetable soup ever! Smoky pulled pork, rice, and so many veggies fill one pot!

7. Chinese Rice Soup

If you have 15 minutes and a hearty appetite, this soup has your name all over it!

With pre-made ingredients, it’s ready in no time.

Pork belly, ground sausage, and shoulder roast are all great in this soup.

Whatever you have ready to go will make it even simpler!

Extra veggies are always welcome in my home, but it’s delicious as is. 

8. Ginger Garlic Pork Noodle Soup

Comfort food doesn’t have to break the calorie bank!

This divine pork soup can easily be made paleo and is delicious with or without noodles!

Ground pork is the central protein in this hearty soup.

With ginger, mushrooms, cilantro, and chives, the flavors are out of this world. 

If you’re opting for a low-carb dinner, zoodles are delish in this soup. 

9. Spicy Pork Ramen Noodle Soup

Ramen is supposed to be so much more than microwaved noodles!

Pulled pork is divine on a bed of tender noodles. Add in some veggies, a soft-boiled egg, and a touch of spice for a dish the whole family will love.

If you have an Asian market near you, Narutomaki is a delicious addition to ramen, too! 

10. Slow Cooker Southwest Pork Stew

Who can say no to hearty dishes with a little heat?

Leftover pork roast is used in this recipe, and it’s like a mix between stew and taco soup.

With a little cornmeal added in, the broth thickens to a hearty stew texture.

Serve it in large bowls with sour cream, cilantro, and lime. Cornbread is a delicious side for this, too!

11. Tonjiru (Japanese Pork Soup)

Pork belly “stoup” is on the menu tonight! I can’t take credit for the “stoup” but it’s the perfect description for this ultra-hearty soup.

There are big chunks of pork belly in this soup, along with loads of veggies.

All these delicious components swim in a pot of miso broth.

Garnish your served bowls with scallions, pepper flakes, and lemon zest. Talk about full flavor!

12. Mexican Pork Soup

What do you need to warm up on a cold winter night?

The answer is a little spice, a lot of pork, and a whole lot of goodness in one big pot.

With leftover pork, you’ll be shocked at how easily you can make this Mexican pork soup.

It only takes 20 minutes to have this soup ready for your whole family.

Like most soups, simmering longer allows the flavors to really meld together.

Top it with sour cream, avocado, and cheese for a bowl full of goodness!

13. Instant Pot Pork Stew

Need a hearty dinner in a flash? Look no further than this tender pork stew!

Start by sauteing the pork, onions, and garlic. Then, add in the veggies, broth, and tomato paste and steam for 20 minutes.
