Pork and Cider Casserole

Had got a Shoulder of pork and needed something to do with it, So I thought I'd try make a casserole. I used a slow cooker for this but you could pop it in the oven for 2 hours.


Peel and chop the onion, carrots, turnip and potatoes and throw into the slow cooker along with the minced garlic. Remove the fat from the pork shoulder and chop into small cubes and add to the veg. Pour in the cider and stock with the Bay Leaf and a sprinkle of thyme, salt and pepper (according to taste) and leave to cook for several hours (the longer, the better)


Potatoes (medium) 2-3
Of Thyme Sprinkle
Ham Stock 1 Cup
Bay Leaf 1
Sweet Cider 300ml
Garlic (minced) 1 Teaspoon
Turnip 1
Onion (medium Sized) 1
Carrots (medium Sized) 4
Shoulder Of Pork 450g
Salt And Pepper Pinch

Hints 'n' Tips

If you wish for your Casserole to be thicker add some corn flour to help thicken .

When cooking in oven put it in a pre-heated oven 180c for 2 hours until meat and vegetables are tender.
