It’s been a beautiful Autumn Day, and the trees are beginning to turn to their Autumn Sunday Best Colours. To see and enjoy scenes like this lift the spirit don’t they, especially in these present uncertain times of Covid 19. The UK is waiting for our Prime Ministers announcement tomorrow and I think it will bring more restrictions to the Covid 19 ‘hot spot’ areas … we wait to find out.

In the meantime after a lovely day it was time to enjoy a favourite meal. Would it be a Roast Pork dinner or a Pork Casserole Rustic Style, both are tasty! We chose the casserole, always so delicious.

This recipe/meal is in my top five favourite pork casserole recipes.


Serves two

2/3 pork chops (optional remove fat) and cut into small pieces

2 large leeks chopped

a hand-full of button mushrooms

1 large sliced carrot

1 table spoon of dried mixed herbs

Approx. 1 pint of gravy stock

Salt and pepper to taste.


Clean, cut and place all ingredients in a casserole dish or earthenware oven proof pot with lid.

Pour over the stock and cook at 190º C /375º F / Gas Mark 5 for 90 minutes

( I usually stir the casserole every 30 minutes or so … )

Check food is cooked through, then serve and enjoy

What could be easier, very low-carb, real food and tastes great.
