This is a recipe I've been doing on and off for years in one form or another, it initially came about simply because we used to rear our own piggies! And we were for ever coming up with different dishes to use up the abundance of pork!!

There's nothing ground breaking about this recipe, it's just absolutely delicious! And works fantastically well with wonderful Pork Belly

You'll be able to feed 4 people really well with this recipe, it's a fantastic dinner or supper dish

It's definitely well worth leaving the Pork to infuse with all those fantastic flavours overnight
