Pork One Pot Meal

I feel it’s been January forever and ever but I thought I’d break through the permanent greyness of the sky and head out through the gentle sleet or so I thought. I convinced my husband to drive us to a Pottery near Stoke.No harm ever came of a simple trip out and a cup of tea.

That’s what I thought I mean the roads hadn’t been gritted which I thought they would of done if it was going to be so very perilous.

So after a bit we beat a hasty retreat to home after seeing a smart car that had gone into the central barrier and was being assisted by the emergency services.

Once safely deposited at home after copious amounts of tea I thought about getting organised for tea and it was to be roast pork with everything else cooked with it so I didn’t have to think about various other pots and pans.

So as I had a joint of Pork I thought I would do a one pot roast ( in a oven proof dish )


One Pork joint 35 minutes per 500g then an extra 35 minutes


Sweetcorn ( I had mini sweetcorn )

Snap peas

Any veg of your choice really


Preheat your oven to around 190 c

If you want crackling on your pork joint score the fat  and salt appropriately

Spending on the size of your potatoes add them around 45 minutes before the end of the cook ( you could par boil them if you want a really roasty potato )

Then as I was having mini sweetcorn and sugar snap peas I added the sweetcorn 20 minutes before the end of the cook and the sugar snap peas 10 minutes before the end.

The crackling was not quite ready so when the joint was ready I took that of and gave the crackling an extra cook.

I have never attempted crackling before but it turned out well and I used some left over crackling and pork in another meal which in my case was  pork noodle meal with the crackling on top.
