Mummy Kitchen: My Favourite One Pot Wonder - Pork Casserole

25 August 2011, Comments 0

I love the idea of one pot wonders, they are an amazing invention for quick easy cooking as a family that you can all enjoy together. I often cook a one pot meal at least once a week and often make casseroles.

Casseroles are my personal favourite as you can go down the route of what you have left in your fridge at the end of the week in your plan to combat your food waste. This particular casserole that I have written about below is a pork casserole that is full of goodness and is very cheap and easy to make.

Most of the ingredients involved you will also often have sat there is your fridge and cupboardas.


900g pork shoulder

Large Handful Breadcrumbs

2 Apples Cored & Sliced

200g Shredded Cabbage

1/2pt Apple Juice

Handful Chopped Parsley

300g Diced Leek

200g Pre Rolled Puff Pastry

3 Cloves Garlic

1 Diced Onion

100g Frozen Peas

1 Beaten Egg


"pork casserole"Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 or 160c and cook your pork in a casserole dish on the stove until they are nicely browned. Add the onion and the garlic and cook on a medium heat. Add the apple juice and a bit of corn flour and stir until thickened.

Add the leeks and bring to the boil then cook in the oven for 50 minutes.

10 minutes before it is complete prepare the pastry for on top and get your other ingredients ready.

When you have got your casserole from the oven add the apple, cabbage, parsley and peas. Then add your breadcrumbs and mix well. Once you have done this you need to add the pastry to the top of the casserole and brush with the beaten egg.

Now cook for a further 15 minutes in the oven, until it is cooked thoroughly and the pastry is a lovely shade of brown.

Now it is time to serve your masterpiece and enjoy your beautiful meal with your family.
