CREAMY SLOW COOKED PORK CASSEROLE

Serves: Serves 4 Prep Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 3 hours 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS

2 tbsp vegetable oil

500 g Yorkshire Outdoor diced pork

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp ground black pepper

¼ tsp celery salt optional – I find it adds a nice savoury flavour

1 onion peeled and chopped

12 baby mushrooms chopped in half

2 carrots peeled and chopped

250 ml dry cider   

420 ml chicken or vegetable stock (water plus 2 stock cubes is fine, or use 2 tsp bouillon for gluten free)

½ tsp dried thyme

150 g bacon lardons or chopped streaky bacon

1 tbsp cornflour cornstarch mixed with 3 tbsp cold water

60 ml double (heavy) cream

2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley

 

To Serve

Mashed potatoes

Steamed kale or other green veg

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 170C/325F.


Heat 1 ½ tbsp of the vegetable oil in a large casserole dish until hot. Add the pork, salt, pepper and celery salt and brown on all sides – it should take around 6-8 minutes.


Turn the heat down to medium and add in the onion. Cooked for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the onion softens.

Add the mushrooms and cook for a further two minutes, then add the carrots, cider, stock and dried thyme. Turn up the heat and bring to the boil. Stir and scrape up any bits than may have stuck to the bottom of the pan. Place a lid on the pan, and place in the oven for 2 ½ to 3 hours*, until the pork flakes apart when you press it with a fork. Check a couple of times during the last hour of cooking and add a splash of water or stock if it’s starting to look a little dry.


Just before the casserole comes out of the oven, heat the remaining ½ tbsp oil in a frying pan and cook the bacon lardons until crispy. Turn off the heat.


Remove the casserole from the oven and stir in the cornstarch and water mixture to thicken, then stir in the cream. Taste and season with a little more salt and pepper if needed. Sprinkle on the bacon lardons.
Serve with green veg on top of mashed potatoes. Sprinkle on a little chopped parsley before serving.

Note: * You could also transfer to a slow cooker at this point and cook for 6-8 hours on low or 5-6 hours on medium
