Pan Roast Pork

This is a variation on an Italian dish - I'm using chorizo instead of Italian sausage; it's cheaper, easier to get and it's what I had!

Serves 4-5

Costs £4.35-£5.00 depending on what you use

Another one-pot-wonder. It's cheap and really tasty.



500g pork shoulder - £2.00 (£8 for 2Kg)

300g potatoes - 30p (about 60p/Kg)

1 red pepper - 50p

1 onion - 10p

1 garlic bulb - 35p

20% of a chorizo sausage - 50p (£2.50 for the whole thing)

glug of white wine - if you have it

bay leaves


2 lemons - 60p

  • Put oil in a pan and pop it in the oven at 200ºC

  • Cut the potatoes into thick chunks

  • Trim a lot of the fat from the pork - cut up the fat - we'll pop it in for flavour. We're wasting nothing

  • You can leave some skin on some bits of pork, or remove it all - it's entirely up to you. See? THIS is what autonomy feels like.

  • Thick chunks of chorizo, Italian sausage or just plain bangers

  • Remove the paper skin from the garlic bulb, but leave the cloves unpeeled

  • Peel and roughly chop the onion into... you guessed it - big chunks

  • Deseed and thickly slice the pepper

  • Halve the lemons - we're juicing them

  • Wearing oven gloves take the pan from the oven

  • Pop in the pork and let it sizzle and brown

  • Add the onions, garlic, potatoes... hang on... add everything

  • Plop bay leaves and rosemary in too; a sprinkle of salt and a good glug of wine (I only had rosé - worked fine)

  • Stir it all through and add a little oil on top and the lemon juice

  • Pop the uncovered pot in the oven,

  • THEN turn the oven down to 160ºC

  • After an hour, give it a good stir

  • Pop it back in for another hour
