    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 2tbsp vegetable oil
    • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
    • 100g button mushrooms, finely sliced

    1. Season the pork well with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the ground pork, together with the onion and garlic, for about 4-5 minutes.

    5. Place in a preheated oven 200°C, gas mark 6, for 35-40 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked, there is no pink meat and the topping is golden brown.
    6. Serve with salad leaves and crusty French bread.
