If you like the taste of a classic Tuscan stew, you can substitute 1 tbsp of tomato paste with 2 tbsp of olive oil. 

You can add some of the stew ingredients to the pork if you like, but this will still be the same basic stew. 

If you like a less traditional Tusca sauce, you could add some red pepper to the stew to give it a bit more spice.
