I cooked this for 6 hours on medium in the slow cooker whilst I was at work absolutely gorgeous meal to come home to 😄 - 20 Feb 2014


A good casserole base, I made this with a few slight changes, it was delicious: - Diced pork, instead of chops - Both red and green pepper - 3 heaped spoons of flour, for thicker sauce - Added maybe a tablespoon of tomato puree - Added 2 tablespoons of garlic paste - Salt and peppered both the veg and sauce quite heavily - A few dashes of worcester sauce. Bursting with flavour! - 13 Mar 2014


Thank you so much Shirley for sharing this recipe as it is very much like one a family friend made for me when I was pregnant. I could find nothing like it on US sites.He passed away and never gave up his positively addictive recipe ,since he was a cook in army. Harold was a wonderful friend but with this recipe in my book I feel like he is still here! - 14 Oct 2014
