Some recipes are just not meant to be 'fussed' over or messed around with, but appreciated in their simplicity. I often make casserole dishes because they're so full of flavor, easy to make and all in one pan which is always an advantage when it comes to washing up after! You can see a few more of our lovely casserole recipes here.

This dinner packs a punch of tomato flavor, together with the other ingredients of carrots, adding sweetness and brightness to the dish. The pork meat, whilst it is cooking in the sauce, adds it's own flavor and also marries well with the tomatoes. The pork is nice and tender.

Our tomato and pork casserole is a delicious meal, quick and easy, and flexible enough for you to adapt the meat to your liking. I have written you can add some fresh herbs to the recipe, although I haven't done that on this occasion. For example, you could add some fresh thyme, oregano (go easy on that as it is very strong), basil, tarragon etc.

Ingredients

6 medium tomatoes, skinned and chopped or 2 cans of chopped tomatoes
2 cloves garlic – crushed
2 medium onions, chopped
6-7 medium-sized mushrooms, quartered
1 tablespoon of tomato puree
2 tablespoons All-Purpose flour
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 Medium Carrots, peeled & cut to bite size pieces
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Salt & pepper to taste
1 pint or 550 ml chicken broth
4 - 6 Pork cutlets, ribs or chops.
A handful of fresh chopped herbs such as basil (optional)

Please note you add as much meat as your family enjoys. You can keep the meat in whole pieces or slice it into bite-size pieces. You can also swap for chicken or seafood, such as shrimp or fish.

Instructions

1. In a large pan or Dutch Oven, add the olive oil and brown the meat.

In the photo below I also added some pork bones and removed them when ready to serve. This just adds more flavor, so if you have any add them!

Then add the chopped onions and garlic, reduce the heat and cook until the onions are soft and translucent in color.

Add the flour, carrots, and mushrooms, and the remaining ingredients, and simmer on the stovetop until the meat and carrots are tender.

3. Before serving, have a taste of the sauce and see if you need any more salt and pepper, then get ready to plate up! If adding fresh herbs, do that just before serving. Serve with rice, potatoes, pasta, whatever your family enjoys!

Notes on Cooking Times

Depending on what type of meat and thickness you are using, the cooking time will vary from 15 minutes for bite-size pieces to 35 - 40 minutes for chops or ribs, on a slow stovetop simmer.

You may also pop this in the oven to cook at 170 C / 325 F for 1 hour (lid on), or transfer everything to the slow cooker and set on LOW for 4 hours, or Pressure Cooker function on your multicooker for 20 minutes.
