Leftover pork stew

Yesterday I had a lot of roast pork leftover from Sunday lunch so I decided to make pork stew. My recipe is an adapted version of this one on the Sainsbury’s website.

Leftover Pork Stew


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, cut into wedges
  • 2 leeks, trimmed and thickly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 400g pack “ready to roast” butternut squash and sweet potato
  • 175g pearl barley
  • 1 litre hot chicken stock
  • 390g carton chopped tomatoes
  • 300g leftover roast pork, cut into chunks
  • 200g broccoli
  • 1 tbsp mixed herbs
  1. Heat the oil in a large pan, fry the onion and leeks for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the squash, sweet potato and garlic and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the pearl barley, chicken stock, broccoli and tomatoes and bring to the boil. Turn down to a simmer, cover and cook for 30 minutes.
  4. Stir in the pork and mixed herbs and cook for another 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper then serve.
