Midweek Meal : Rustic Style Pork Casserole

We've been fortunate to enjoy some sunny, but cool days, recently and hopefully today (Wednesday) may be the same. I had some pork chops in the freezer, but they are now defrosting in readiness for a warming Rustic Style Pork Casserole, which Eddie and I will enjoy for dinner later ...
It's one of our favourites 😋

Serves two
2/3 pork chops (optional remove fat) and cut into small pieces
2 large leeks chopped
a hand-full of button mushrooms
1 large sliced carrot
1 table spoon of dried mixed herbs
Approx. 1 pint of gravy stock
Salt and pepper to taste.

Clean, cut and place all ingredients in a casserole dish or earthenware oven proof pot with lid.

Pour over the stock and cook at 190º C /375º F / Gas Mark 5 for 90 minutes

( I usually stir the casserole every 30 minutes or so ... )

Check food is cooked through, then serve and enjoy

What could be easier, very low-carb, real food and tastes great.

I saw some early flowering daffodils

I don't know if I have ever had pork in a casserole?
Oh how wonderful to already be enjoying flowers blooming!

What a nice post, Jan!
Different casseroles are our favourites too, especially during the cold seasons.
(The "Karelian hot pot", with pork and usually also another type of meat, is almost our national dish.)
Wishing you lovely winter days. Indeed, the weather map promises you sunny and cool days but next week already warmer. :)
Stay well! xx

This looks right up my alley. And a good February meal. Plus even if it is an old image, I am loving those daffs. With a good 25 cm of snow and ice on the ground, flowers are very welcome.
