Slum Gullion (Thick Pork Stew)

“This is something my mother made for us when I was a kid. I have no idea where she got the recipe, nor why she called it Slum Gullion. I adapted it a bit. It's easy, easily adaptable and full of good stuff! I'm afraid it doesn't look beautiful, but you can't beat the goodness!”
