Comments Off on Sticky Pork with Plums

This recipe I have used before in other books, but it’s so good I have to repeat it. Yes, before I get letters, you add the pork to the bubbling caramel. It really is so easy, and the plums make a great sauce once cooked down. Of course, any fruit would work well here, so apples, pears, mango, and even kiwi.

Ingredients
 

  • 1.2 kg shoulder of pork, fat on, skinned, cut into 6cm chunks
  • plenty of ground pepper
  • 80 g sugar
  • 4 medium onions, peeled, then finely chopped roughly
  • 3 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 pork or chicken stock cubes
  • 8 ripe British plums, halved, stone removed
  • 2 medium Bramley apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 150 mls boiling water
  • 225 g frozen peas
  • A little arrowroot or cornflour, slaked in a little water

Instructions
 

  • Heat the sugar in a large saucepan (that has a tight-fitting lid)
  • Dry the pork chunks on a kitchen towel; the drier, the better.
  • Stir until you have a thick caramel.
  • Pepper the pork well, and then add to the caramel. Mix in the bubbling caramel until nicely browned. Probably for 2-3 minutes.
  • Next, add the onions, sauces, lemon juice, and stock cubes and mix well.
  • Bring to the simmer, then add the plums, apples, little salt, and water and again, mix well.
  • Bring back to the simmer, then cover with the lid, turn the heat right down, and simmer REALLY GENTLY or 45-50 minutes. Or until cooked and tender but not falling apart.
  • Once cooked, remove the lid and thicken with a little starch and water, don’t go mad; it needs to be a light sauce.
  • Remove the pan from the stove, add the peas, stir in and, re-cover, leave for 20 minutes.
  • Re-season, and serve in deep bowls with wedges of roast cabbage and mash.
