    A recipe which uses fairly cheap ingredients but nevertheless results in something tasty with a bit of adjustable heat. Just vary amount of chilli powder in recipe.

    1. If pork comes as steaks or chops, put pork in slow cooker. If it comes in a large lump then chop into steaks before putting in cooker. Add the 2 tins of chopped tomatoes, followed by the onion, garlic and leeks.
    2. Add herbs, chilli powder, curry powder, salt and pepper. Crumble stock cube into the contents of the cooker and pour in the water.
    3. Cook on high for 5 hours or low for 8 hours; stir every hour or two. Add beans an hour before end of cooking. Serve with boiled spuds and seasonal veg. I guess rice would be OK too but I haven't tried.


    I guess (in my slow cooker at least) I could scale it up to maybe enough for 6 people by just adding more of all the ingredients. If you like hot food, just add more chilli powder. I've used the same recipe with other meats. I use what's cheapest. It works out (with spuds and vegetables) about 2 to 3 quid a head. Use dried beans if you can. It means remembering to put them to soak the night before but they work out about half the price of canned beans.

    Substitutions and tips

    For the pork, use the cheaper, fattier cuts found in your local butcher/supermarket. Instead of using 1 tin black-eyed beans, you could use kidney beans or dried beans soaked for 24 hours.
