Ingredient list

  • 400g Specially Selected Pork shoulder, diced
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and finely chopped (about 65g)
  • 2 carrots, peeled, topped and tailed and diced (about 170g)
  • 1 stick celery, diced (about 50g)
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 300mls hot vegetable stock/pork stock (made using low salt baby stock cubes, or homemade)
  • 1 Bramley apple, peeled, cored and sliced

Method

1.Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160/gas mark 4. Toss the pork in the flour. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the meat until lightly browned, in batches if your pan is crowded.

2. Transfer to a casserole dish (with a fitted lid). Fry the onion, carrots and celery in the pan for 5 minutes until soft.

3. Add to the casserole dish along with the rest of the ingredients. Oven bake for 1 hour with the lid on until the pork is tender and the sauce has thickened.

4. If you’re weaning with puree, simply blitz the casserole in a food processor with the blade attachment or use a stick blender. Portion into ice cube trays, freeze and then once frozen transfer into freezer bags.
