    Pork in cider

    Pork and cider is a classic combination. These ingredients work beautifully as a hotpot with mustard, apple and thyme and a layer of crisp roast potatoes on top.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 2 hours
    • Total time: 2 hours 15 minutes

    Serves: 4


    1 tbsp oil
    1 onion, sliced
    1 pork fillet, cut into 1cm slices, about 500g
    1 tbsp plain flour, seasoned
    1 chicken stock cube
    1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
    568ml cider
    3 sprigs fresh thyme
    1 Cox apple, cored and cut into wedges
    800g King Edward potatoes, thinly sliced
    Knob of butter


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion for 3-4 minutes, then remove and set aside. Toss the pork in the seasoned flour and fry until browned, then return the onions to the pan. Add the stock cube, 100ml water and mustard, and gradually blend in the cider. Bring to the boil and add the thyme and apple wedges.

    2. Place a thin layer of potatoes in the base of a casserole dish, top with half the pork, add half the remaining potatoes and season. Repeat the layers finishing with potatoes, then season and dot with butter. Cover and bake for 1 hour 30 minutes.

    3. Remove the lid and cook for a further 30 minutes until golden.
