Here’s how you make it:
Slice up the onions and smash the garlic cloves…
image

…and add them with the carrots to the slow cooker liner. Season liberally with salt and pepper.
image

Grab some high quality pork…
image

image

…cube it (if you’re so inclined)…
image

…and toss with Sunny Paris seasoning and fish sauce.
image

(No Sunny Paris? No problem. Just use an herb blend you like.)
image

Add another sprinkle of salt and pepper and toss to combine.
image

Pile the seasoned pork on top of the onions and carrots…
image

…and tuck the cabbage wedges on top.
image

image

Drizzle on the marinara sauce and some more salt and pepper.
image

Put on the lid and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
When the pork and veggies are fork-tender, adjust the stew for seasoning with  balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.

If you’re feeling fancy, top the stew with fresh Italian parsley.
