Hands up who loves super-duper easy one-pot dinner ideas, to prepare for their family (me, Me, ME!!!)
Ok, I think you’ll love this one then.
Before I give you the recipe I want to tell you about one of the best kitchen investments I’ve ever made (apart from my spaghetti saucepan with the lockable lid with holes in, that I bought in 1999)… my double roasting tin.
I bought it in the sale from my local department store several years ago. They can be used separately, or one can serve as a lid. It has good solid handles, and is perfect for starting casseroles on the hob, before transferring to the oven. Making it a true one-pot wonder! Love it.
Shopping List: (serves 6)
1 Tbsp olive oil
6 pork steaks
4 medium/large potatoes, skin-on (I use Albert Bartlett Roosters), cut in to wedges.
3 medium/large apples, quartered and cored.
3 carrots, peeled and sliced (not too thin)
2 onions, peeled and quartered.
1 heaped tsp dried sage (or a few leaves of fresh, chopped)
1 3/4 pts vegetable or chicken stock
Salt and pepper to taste.
How To: (heat your oven to low, about 140c, or get your slow cooker on)
Simply brown the pork steaks on both sides in hot oil on the hob, before adding the onions for a couple of minutes. Then throw in the potatoes, apples, carrots and sage. Stir it all around, before pouring the stock over, and seasoning with salt and pepper.
Pop a lid on, and put it in the oven to cook for about two hours (stirring half way through).
Or for a slow cooker, see your manufacturers instructions.
(Before the oven…)
This casserole makes it own scrumptious gravy. You won’t need any extra.
Serve with the green veg of your choice…….and enjoy.
