Country pork casserole


serves 4
450 g (1 lb) pork fillet
25 g (1 oz) flour
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons oil
2 onions, sliced
1-2 leeks, sliced
1-3 celery sticks, diced
1 small green pepper, seeded and diced
225 g (8 oz) tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice or white wine vinegar
150 ml (1/4 pint) chicken stock
1 - 2 tablespoons tomato puree


1. Cut the pork into neat slices. Blend the flour, salt and pepper and use to coat the meat lightly. Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan, fry the pork slices on either side until golden brown and transfer to a casserole.

2. Add the onions, leeks and celery to the pan and fry gently for 10 minutes; do not allow the vegetables to brown. Spoon these vegetables over the pork then add the pepper and tomatoes.

3. Pour the lemon juice or vinegar, chicken stock and tomato puree into the pan; stir well to absorb any meat juices, season to taste, then spoon over the pork and vegetables.

4. Cover the casserole and cook in the oven for 40-50 minutes, or until the meat is tender.

The fillet is the leanest cut of pork and also the most tender – it is sometimes called tenderloin. For this dish it is not necessary to buy the fillet in one piece.

I used just some basic diced pork and served this with rice. I also had the oven at 160C and the dish in for about an hour.
It was very sweet tasting and made a great meal - thanks!

I was very pleased with the end result. However I did not add tomato puree as I thought this might be too strong and as I used an Oxo chicken cube for the stock I did not add any salt. The flavour was delicious.

Added red onion, paprika, lemon zest and juice, red wine vinegar and half a chopped red chilli. Served with mashed turnip sweet potato and carrot with roast spud. Amazing, plus our 18 month old boy loved it too!
