Slow Cooker Pork, Leek and Apple Casserole

Slow Cooker Pork, Leek and Apple Casserole

Now that we are back to school and after-school clubs have started back up, I am again relying on my slow cooker so we can come home after a busy afternoon to healthy, home-cooked meals which are steaming hot and ready to eat.

It is great to be able to throw a few simple ingredients in and then forget about it until tea time. I love using a digital slow cooker which will cook for as long as I want then switch to the keep warm function. So convenient when you are busy out and about or at work.

This pork, leek and apple casserole was so simple to make but tasted great and was a hit with the whole family. This was a definite bonus in my book! The delicious light stock base allows the flavours of the leek, apple and carrot to come through.

We served this dish with rice and garlic bread for an easy midweek meal, it would also be great with mash and green vegetables. Slow cooked meat is so tender which makes it popular with my whole family.

Recipe:

  • 500 g pork topside, diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 carrots, sliced
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 1 apple, cored but not peeled, chopped
  • 400 ml chicken stock
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • A dash of liquid chicken stock
  • 3-4 tbsp crème fraîche

Method:

Place all the ingredients except the crème fraîche in the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
Add the crème fraîche just before serving.
