  • Turn the stove to HIGH and heat the cooking oil in a wide pan.
  • When the oil starts to smoke, spread the pork cubes on the bottom. Do not disturb for a few minutes to allow to brown. Then, stir to break up lumps. Continue cooking with occasional stirring until all sides are uniformly browned.
  • Sprinkle the Cajun spice mix and sugar over the pork cubes. Cook, stirring, until the color is uniform.
  • Pour in the bone broth. When the mixture starts to simmer, cover the pot, turn the heat down to LOW and cook the pork until tender, about 50 minutes. Taste occasionally and add more seasoning if needed. If the liquid dries up before the pork reaches the desired level of tenderness, pour in more bone broth, a quarter cup at a time.
  • Add the corn kernels and diced bell peppers to the pork and stir. Continue cooking over low heat, covered, until the corn kernels are done.
  • Serve the Cajun-style pork stew with crusty bread or rice.
