Pork and Cider Stew

I’ve made this stew in many variations, but today’s attempt was definitely one of the best. It’s especially good served up with some freshly cooked white bread. Probably. I kinda undercooked the bread a little. (shhhh, the other post thinks it was successful!)

Serves 3-4 people depending on portion size. I generally find it serves as many people as are sitting around the table!


500g pork (diced)

2 Potatoes

2 Parsnips

2 Carrots

1 onion

1 tin baked beans

1 stock cube

1 bottle cider

Various seasonings


Chop all the veg and pork and put into a large saucepan with the baked beans. Dissolve the stock cube in the cider and add to the pan. Add seasonings to taste. I used rosemary, parsley, a pinch of Tesco Cajun spices and a big squirt of tomato purée  I also used the cheapest cider that Tesco sells – given that you’re cooking it in with a whole load of other flavours, you don’t really need to splash out here. You can add some cooking apples if you like, it adds to both the flavour and texture. I would have done, but I forgot that we had a bunch in.

Simmer for about an hour, or until it goes gloopy.
