Simple Pork & Onion Stew

500g pork meat (anything on special - I used leg meat so no need to cook as long as tougher cuts).
3 large onions (I usually add more as love the onions)
1 tablespoon plain flour
1 cup water (enough to just cover meat & onions _ less is better to concentrate flavour)
1 cup tomato sauce (I use Fountain spicy red)
2 teaspoons raw sugar
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
Salt and ground pepper to taste - I usually add after cooked so I can balance flavours

1.  Brown diced pork meat - do this a bit at a time in hot pan with a little oil or oil spray and remove as soon as brown so not fully cooked but well browned as this adds to flavour
2.  Lower heat to medium.  Add chopped onions to pan with a little more oil - a table spoon - and brown nicely
3.  Add flour and mix through.   Add rest of ingredients and mix through.  Lower heat to low and cook slowly - no lids but can put a little grease proof paper over meat to keep moisture in. Cook until meat is break apart tender.
4.  Serve with mashed root vegetables and greens or over rice.
