Recipe review

Lovely flavours, too tough!


I would slow cook this next time. It was lovely but very chewy. 3hours in the slow-cooker would be much better. - Jerry

A nice wintery casserole dish that's really simple to make to your own personal taste. Leave out what you don't like and add what you fancy.

Chef's notes

The pork shoulder was too tough cooked in this manner, far better to slow cook for two or 3 hours to break up the tough tissues. Another solution would be to mince the pork shoulder first.


I made this for two, using half the meat but the other ingredients were left mostly the same; more gravy, pass the peas!
