Pork and Squash Casserole ... low carb and so easy !


This is a quick to prepare autumn/winter warmer... although for those readers living in the southern hemisphere it could make a pleasing spring-time dish! 

Ingredients
Serves: 4 
2 tbsp. Oil
500g Pork Diced Shoulder
1 onion, chopped
200g butternut squash, diced
1 large carrot, sliced
500ml vegetable stock

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Heat 1 tbsp. of oil in a large flameproof casserole dish. Add the pork, cutting any larger pieces in half to ensure even cooking. Fry the pork for 5 minutes to brown and seal. Remove the pork with a slotted spoon and set aside. 
2. Fry the onion, squash and carrot in the remaining tbsp. of oil in the pan for 5 minutes. Pour in the vegetable stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 2–3 minutes, uncovered. 
3. Remove the dish from the heat, return the pork and season to taste. Cover and place in the oven for 35 minutes or until tender.

Per serving, as recipe above:

Delicious served with low carb mashed swede, or celeriac … 

Did you know, butternut squash is one of the most nutritious and healthiest vegetables you can eat, with a rich array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants as well as significant amounts of digestive fibre. It not only tastes great, it is also low in calories, yet surprisingly filling. Many people would do well to replace fattening potato products with the far healthier and nutritionally superior butternut squash ... find out more here


flowers with an Autumnal colour theme,
they look nice on the table ...

I would like this but not sure the hubby would as he is not a squash man. But maybe I could separate the pork and make this for me and some pork for him. Happy new week.

I will skip the pork- but the thought of a squash casserole sounds good to me. I love it and 'tis the season. :)

This is the time of year to eat squash. It is abundant, nutritious and cheap. We are making batches of different version of squash soup and canning them, ready for a nutritious lunch after a winter morning's walk.

Pork yum only in stretched meals...looks delish. Summer here down under, well feels like it, but I do love the autumnal colours.xx

I am not a fan of pork and wasn't even before I became a vegetarian. However, the rest of the ingredients sound good and a few extra herbs would make anyone forget the need for meat.
