Pork And Apple Stew

Ok so it takes 6 hours in a slow cooker – we get it, it's not a 5-minute wonder. However it's worth every minute! There's so much flavour in this stew you'll find it difficult to wait 6 hours and even more difficult to stick to one portion.

  • Slow cooker


  • 250 g diced pork shoulder
  • 100 g diced raw apple
  • 140 g carrots
  • 250 g small red potatoes
  • 2 shallots
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 100 ml dry cider
  • 30 g plain flour
  • 2 stock cubes (chicken or pork)
  • A few sprigs of thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 8 sage leaves
  • 2 tsp ground black pepper


  • Start by chopping all of the dry ingredients into the relevant sizes: the pork, carrots and potatoes and apples into small chunks and everything else finely diced.
  • In a pan, dry-fry the pork chunks on a medium to high heat until they start to brown (fry with no oil), then place in the slow cooker on low heat.
  • Reusing the same pan, fry the carrot and potato chunks with the olive oil for around 10 minutes on a medium-high heat until they start to turn golden brown.
  • Add the garlic and shallot to the pan and continue to fry for a further 2 minutes before placing the content of the pan in the slow cooker.
  • Blend the flour, black pepper and stock cube with 150ml of hot water and pour into the slow cooker along with the bay leaf, sage and thyme.
  • Cover and cook on low for 5 1/2 hours until the pork falls apart upon touch, then you know it's ready
