  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until lightly browned on all sides. Stir in the garlic and onion. Continue to cook until the onion has softened and the pork is firm and no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  2. Place the pork and onions into a large saucepan. Pour in the chicken stock and season with salt, rosemary, sage and the bay leaf. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Stir in the butternut squash, apples, potatoes and carrots. Return to a simmer, then cook, uncovered until the squash and apples are tender, about 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and serve.

Alternative cooking methods

Lightly brown the pork in the oil, then add to a slow cooker along with remaining ingredients. Cook on High for 1 hour, then reduce heat to Low and simmer 4 hours or until tender.
