    About this recipe: Diced pork, courgettes, peppers, sweet potato, onions and button mushrooms delicately cooked in the slow cooker and served with crusty bread on the side to mop up the delicious juices.

    Substitution

    The sweet potato becomes a lot softer than white potato. If preferred this is equally nice subsituted with white potato.
