Cheat's Mexican-inspired pork casserole

With Allyson Gofton

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 50 minutes
Serves: 4


500 grams diced pork to casserole
2 peppers, deseeded and diced
1 onion, peeled and diced
1 large carrot, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons Mexican seasoning
420 gram can condensed tomato soup


Brown the pork in a dash of oil in a lidded frying pan or heat-proof  casserole, set aside.

Add the peppers, onion and carrot and toss until browned. Stir in the  seasoning and when fragrant add the soup and return the meat to the  pan or casserole and cover.

Simmer slowly or cook at 160C for 45 minutes or until the pork is tender.  Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or pasta.

Up-market or change me!
Add garlic lots of it with the onion; about 1-2 teaspoons
Add can of well-drained kidney beans
Add 1/2 cup olives - black or green
Serve me with polenta
Add a 1 teaspoon each ground coriander, cumin and paprika for extra flavour
Use diced beef for stewing or casseroling in place of pork

Slow cook me!
Throw all the ingredients (without browning) into a slow cooker and cook on low for about 6 hours.
