Carribean Style Slow Cooked Pork

This is a really easy, delicious slow cooked pork dish packed with loads of flavour, great served with mash and veg to keep you warm this winter – I don’t have a photo of the finished dish as it didn’t last long!

Serves: 4 – 6

Ingredients: 800 – 1kg of Pork Shoulder (fat removed), 2 x celery sticks, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/2 a lemon, 1 onion, 1 cinnamon stick, 2 small chillies (whole), more if you like it hot! 2 bay leaves, 1 tsp. dried thyme, 500ml ginger ale, good pinch of salt and pepper.


  1. Preheat your oven to 130F
  2. Roughly chop all of your vegetables
  3. Place the pork in an oven proof lidded dish
  4. Scatter all of the vegetables and dried herbs plus the lemon all over the pork with good pinch of salt and pepper
  5. Pour over the ginger ale put the lid on and pop into the oven for 4 hours, checking half way through cooking time that it is not drying out, if it is add a little water, at this stage also pour some of the juices back over the pork
  6. Pop back in the oven until cooking time is up
  7. Allow to rest for 10 – 15mins then you should be able to shred the pork easily
  8. Serve with some extra veg, potatoes or rice and drizzle over some of those amazing juices…
  9. Enjoy!

November Recipe Review – From Italy to Ethiopia!

Hi All,

November seemed like a short month here at FeastForFamine, but I still managed to squeeze in four recipes that I hope you liked, some designed to save the pennies and some to keep you warm this winter.

So first up was  Inspired by Ethiopia – Berber Style Peas and Broad Beans on Toast with Feta, a really filling cheap and easy recipes that can be used for lunch brunch or dinner and the addition of the Berber, a traditional spice mix from Ethiopia, is sure to warm you up on a cold day.

Next, Madagascar for a sweet treat, Inspired by Madagascar – Vanilla, Banana and Tumeric Muffins with Sea Salt and Vanilla Glaze, lovely light muffins with earthy turmeric and lots and lots of vanilla, making the most of Madagascars’ biggest export! You will want to make this again and again.

Thinking of winter nights, but wanting to stay healthy, I created the Inspired by Romania – Horseraddish and Dill Roasted Salmon with White Beans, Beetroot and Kale full of goodness and deep wintery flavours favoured by Romania.

Last stop in November and to a regular place of inspirations in many households, was to Italy for Inspired by Italy – A Kinda Osso Buco Ragu with Smashed Rosemary Potatoes, a healthier way of cooking this Italian favourite, and great for leftovers poured over pasta the next day.

Hope you are all getting into the festive spirit and are looking forward to the recipes that will be coming here in December, December also marks the last month that you can make donations to my fundraising year for Save The Children, so remember all recipes are created for you not only to enjoy, but to also raise awareness of the struggles countries around the World face on a daily basis, so if you would like to make a donation to Save The Children who are working everyday to support children around the World, please visit my just giving page by clicking the link Just Giving for more information.

So where will we go next? Come back on Monday to find out!

See you soon!
