At last, a cheap & easy meal recipe.
Quick pork pockets. Approx £3.18 for a family of four.
3 pork shoulder steaks
3 tablespoons of brown sauce
3 tablespoons of tomato ketchup
optional - apple/orange/other juice
Pita breads halved
Start by frying pork shoulder steaks.
We don't need to use any oil for this.
Yeah, because we've got quite a bit of fat on there anyway.
Browned on one side the pork is flipped over and goes straight into the oven to cook through for 20 minutes...
..whilst Hala puts Gregg and Chris to work preparing the salad.
By cooking it in the oven, the meat stays really tender and, also, I'm going to use the pork juices to make the easiest sauce.
So, you wouldn't have got so much juice out of the pork had you just cooked it off on the frying pan?
Exactly - it would have just dried out.
I'm putting about three tablespoons of brown sauce in.
And the same of reduced-sugar ketchup.And some apple juice.
Do we want to reduce that down?
No, we just want to make sure it's all mixed together.
So, that's it, then?
Yeah, that's it.
And now we're actually going to place the (chopped/cubed) meat back into the pan.
I tell you what, this recipe is going to be absolutely packed full of flavour
Once the sauce has coated the pork and heated through, it's ready.
It's great for families, cos you can eat it with your fingers, everybody can get involved.
What's the verdict?
And the great thing about this sauce is, it just comes from the staples that most people have in their cupboards.
Result. Quick pork pockets look & taste delicious, at £3.18 for four people - 80p a portion - great value, too
So, do you think this is a dish that the Brook family would all enjoy together?
Without doubt. It's cheap, easy and the children will have fun making it
At the Brooks': Mum! This is delicious!...
