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
- Heat the oil in a large pan, fry the onion and leeks for 10 minutes.
- Add the squash, sweet potato and garlic and cook for a further 5 minutes.
- 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.
- Stir in the pork and mixed herbs and cook for another 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper then serve.
Perfect for a cold evening! My family really like this recipe and its good to know that I am using up the leftovers and not wasting anything!
