Method

1

Season your pork and fry it in half the oil in a pan, until browned

2

Remove pork from pan, then add the remaining oil and fry the onion, peppers, garlic and add a pinch of salt. Do this until they are all soft, usually it takes ten minutes

3

Transfer to slow cooker, and add the spices and tomato puree and cook for a few minutes. When ready, add the chopped tomatoes and 250ml of water

4

Add the pork, season and then leave to cook for desired time. Alternatively, place in an ordinary pan and simmer for two hours

Tip 1
The beans recipe can be used on its own (although it won't need as long to cook)
