My Dad was a huge fan of pork and this is one of his favourites. He didn’t normally like sweet and savoury together. However for this meal he made an exception. Dad made this dish with cider which you are more than welcome to try.
As it’s the New Year I wanted to make this dish slightly healthier. So instead of cider I have used chicken stock. The apples gave this meal a little sweetness which my husband and son love in their dinners. It’s a very simple dish that families can enjoy together. Plus it’s a healthy one too.

One Pot Pork and Apple Stew is a great dish that will feed a family of four. I used cooked pork for this dish. We had leftovers from Christmas and I needed to find a yummy dish to make with them. However, you can use uncooked pork too. It’s a delicious dish with both these types of pork. When my husband and son ate this dish the plates their dinners were on were cleaned. So definitely a good dinner for those fussy eaters. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, enjoy!
Did you have leftover meat at Christmas and if so what did you do with your remaining meat? Let me know in the comments below and please don’t forget to like, comment or follow me. Thank you. xxx
