AD| BritMums #FamilyFavourite Meals Campaign

I was challenged by BritMums as part of this campaign to share my top family meal. This is my oriental pork recipe. The first time I made this meal for my family was when we bought a slow cooker a few years ago. I wanted to make a tasty nutritious family meal and it was the tastiest pork recipe I have ever eaten! This is why I am so excited to be able to share this oriental pork recipe with you.

As the pork is being slow cooked it really makes a difference to the taste and texture of the meat. The meat is tender and moist and absorbs all of the flavours from the ingredients.

Versatile and Adaptable

As pork is a lean meat it is so versatile, and easily adaptable to your taste and cuisines . You can buy a variety cuts and for this recipe I will be using pork fillet. This makes for a quick and easy mid-week meal.

Not only can pork be lean, but itโ€™s naturally rich in protein, low in salt and provides ten essential vitamins and minerals that supports good health and wellbeing. These are: thiamine (vitamin B11), niacin (vitamin B3), vitamins B6 and B12, riboflavin, zinc, potassium, phosphorus, selenium and pantothenic acid. Lean meat is a dependable part of our family meals, and I enjoy knowing that what I am cooking is healthy for all of my family.

For this oriental pork recipe you will start out by sealing the meat in a pan, adding the ingredients and transferring it into the slow cooker.

I like to add a selection of vegetables. My husband and I would have this with asparagus and diced potatoes. For my children they would either have some mashed or sweet potatoes, accompanied by some carrots, broccolli and peas.

I also find that this recipe tastes best the next day as the sauce thickens and gives it a great texture.
