    • Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes 60 minutes 5 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 1 x 454g pack Waitrose Diced Pork
    • 2tbsp olive oil
    • 1tbsp Bart Spices Bristol Blend of Five Peppercorns, crushed
    • 9 fresh sage leaves, torn

    1. Place the diced pork into a pan with half the olive oil, peppercorns and sage leaves and fry for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and thoroughly cooked.
    2. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper to absorb any remaining oil and fat.
    3. Wipe the pan clean with kitchen paper and add the remaining olive oil. Fry the onion for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown and soft. Add the mushrooms and fry for another 4-5 minutes (if the pan becomes dry add a little of the measured out cider).
    4. Stir in the cider and bring to the boil. Bubble for 2-3 minutes, then stir in the stock, crème fraîche, the mustards and the pork.
    5. Return to the boil and reduce by half. This should take between 10-15 minutes.
