Heat the cooking oil in a pan. Over high heat, brown the pork pieces in the hot oil.
Lower the heat to medium. Add the sliced sausages, chopped onion, minced garlic, bay leaf and oregano. Season with fish sauce and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until the onion bits soften.
Pour in the chopped tomatoes and soy sauce. Stir. Bring to the boil, lower the heat and simmer for 45 minutes or until the pork is tender. If the sauce dries out before the pork is done, add bone broth, half a cup at a time.
Add the potato and carrot wedges along with the bell peppers. Stir. Cover the pan and simmer for another 15 minutes. Taste the sauce (the vegetables will soak up the saltiness) and adjust the seasonings.
Stir in the bell peppers and green peas. Simmer for another five minutes.
The pork afritada is ready to serve at this point. If, however, you have the patience, cool the stew and refrigerate overnight. Pork afritada, as with most stews, taste better after reheating.
