Only 5 ingredients!


NB
I use homemade gammon stock in this recipe, so no other flavourings or spice are needed. However, if you don't have any homemade stock handy, substitute water and add 4 cloves, 2 bay leaves and a handful of peppercorns.

Method
Peel and chop the onions. Heat a small amount of oil in a large pan and gently fry the onions for 2 to 3 minutes.
While the onions are frying, peel and chop the carrots.
Add the mince to the onions and brown for 2 minutes.
Add carrots, peas and stock and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Bring to the boil.
For hob cooking, reduce to a simmer and leave for 2 to 3 hours.
For slow cooking, place pan in slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours.

During cooking, the pork will release juices into the stock - don't be alarmed if it turns milky. This is quite normal!


When the casserole is cooked, the liquid may still be a bit runny. In this case, put 2 heaped teaspoons of cornflour in a container, add a splash of cold water and mix to a smooth paste. Bring the casserole to a rolling boil and add the cornflour paste. Boil for 5 to 10 minutes until desired thickness is obtained.

Variations
Replace the peas and carrots with celery and cabbage for a variation on this casserole. You could also add diced potatoes to save on cooking them separately!
