My method of cooking often tends to be ‘what do I have in the cupboard, can I make anything from it’! I had pork loin, lots of sweet potatoes, spring onions and an orange and this recipe came about! I love pork slow cooked, as it takes on such a lovely texture. I also really wanted to make something a bit more experimental to try out on my children, and they both ate this so well I was very pleased! I usually wouldn’t cook something like this without spice, but it was lovely just as it was. I have added extra green chilli to my own portion though.
