pork in wine

A relatively quiet day today. Mother and father departed this afternoon back to the northern wilds so we cooked up a grand lunch after church. The main course was exceptional (and easy) and I share the receipe below:

1. Lighlty brown a large pre-seasoned joint of pork in olive oil then place in an oven-proof casserole dish with a couple of sliced onions. Cover and cook for 60 mins at 180C.
2. Remove dish and add potatoes, sage leaves, black pudding (long lengths) and two glasses of medium white wine. Season, cover and cook for a further 45 mins at 180C.
3. Chop up carrots, beetroot, courgettes, pumpkin and leeks. Place in an oven tray and drizzle with olive oil and rosemary. Cook alongside casserole for 45 mins.

Serve immediately to your parentals and watch your mother look proud!
