Warming winter pork casserole

Warming winter pork casserole

A slow, lazy cooking session to me feels apt for January. Whilst snow drops sluggishly peep their heads through the soil, nothing should be done too fast and with too much exertion. Pop a good heavy casserole dish on the hob, and let it gently bubble away until your hunger overtakes.
