Treacle Treat

I popped into my mums yesterday evening and by chance she happened to be making her yummy special pork casserole. When she told me I accepted the invite for a plateful and decided to capture the magic to share with you guys. I only had my iPhone on me so hopefully the pictures do this delicious, home-cooked comfort food some justice. It’s special pork casserole because it has a secret ingredient you wouldn’t expect to find – but one that gives it all it’s yummmy flavour! And best of all, it’s only 5 ingredients!

You will need;

Pork 150g per person

Button mushrooms (approx 250g)

1 can of beans

300ml Stock (chicken or pork will do)

The magic ingredient – 1 heaped tablespoon of black treacle.

This recipe is a case of throwing it all together into a casserole dish and baking low for a few hours. The result, a sweet pork casserole bursting with flavour which will easily serve 4.

To give it a go dice your pork. We had loin to use up and belly but the belly usually gives the best result. Brown you pork in a little olive oil and throw into a casserole dish.

Add in a pack of mushrooms and a can of beans.

Next step – dissolve 2 stock cubes into 300ml of water. Add in your heaped spoonful of treacle then pour the mixture all over the ingredients into the casserole dish.

Bake this in the oven on about 150 degrees for a good 2-3 hours. Serve with mash or a crusty baguette for the perfect winter warming supper! Or, if you’re having a Halloween party why not prepare a big pot and leave it warming on the stove ready for  guests to help themselves to a bowl full of your Treacle Treat.
