Pork and Cider Casserole

A lovely winter warmer…
Serves 4-6

500g pork shoulder, cubes ( I got hand of pork, apparently right by shoulder as they had run out at the butchers)
3 carrots, sliced
2 onions, cut into chunks
1 leek, sliced
1 stick of celery, sliced
2 glasses of cider ( I used medium still cider, but I’m sure any will do)
Pork gravy granules ( I know this is crap cooking but it makes life easier)
Salt and pepper
A generous shake or two of marjoram

Brown pork in large heavy based saucepan or casserole dish.
Add onions, leek, carrots and celery and fry for a couple of min.
Add cider. Let bubble down for a few minutes.
Top up with boiling water.
Simmer for about an hour/ hour and a half until pork is tender.
Season, add gravy to thicken and sprinkle in marjoram.

Serve with a nice buttery mash, I made potato and swede mash. Now that should warm your cockles…
