Jamie Oliver's Pork and Cider Stew Recipe

Another recipe from Jamie Oliver's 'Ministry of Food' cookbook - a simple pork stew made with cider. I love the simplicity of this recipe - and it takes hardly any time to prepare. Preparing the stew takes less than 20 minutes, and then you can just forget it whilst it slow cooks in the oven for a couple of hours. The end result is beautifully tender meat and veggies - a hearty meal for the family!

Recipe - Jamie Oliver's Pork and Cider Stew
Serves 4-6


Olive Oil
2 celery sticks, chopped
2 medium onions, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1 tbsp of plain flour
1 x 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
Salt and Pepper (to season)
3 sprigs fresh sage 
500g diced stewing pork 
500ml bottle of medium-dry cider


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2. Wash, peel and roughly chop the vegetables.
3. Put a casserole dish on the hob, add a couple of glugs of olive oil and tip in the vegetables and sage. Fry over a medium heat for about 10 minutes.

4. Add the diced pork and the flour, followed by the cider and chopped tomatoes. Give the stew a stir and season with salt and pepper.

5. Bring to the boil and give the mixture a good stir, then transfer the casserole dish to the oven.
6. Cook in the oven for 2½ hours. Keep the lid on until the final hour of cooking.

7. I served my stew with mashed potatoes, as they are a favourite in my household! In his cookbook Jamie suggests serving with dumplings - find his recipe for dumplings here.
