A tasty and simple to make stew, perfect for the whole family. 



  • 500 g approx. sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 500 g lean pork (I used loin, cubed)
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 spring onions (finely chopped)
  • Orange zest (about half the orange)
  • 50 ml of freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • a few grinds of black pepper
  • juice of 1 lime
  • handful fresh coriander


  1. Put all of the ingredients apart from the lime juice and coriander into the slow cooker
  2. Cook on low for 7 hours, stir half way through if you can.
  3. Serve with fresh lime juice squeezed over the top and sprinkled with chopped coriander


Add in some chopped green chilli if you’d like a bit of spice! I love this with cous cous and green beans
