Hog Roast Devon Leftover Pie
You know how it is. You have cooked a lovely roast pork lunch, everyone has had their fill, now what to do with the leftovers? Of course there are the usual suspects, sandwiches, curry etc but here is my recipe for a stunning leftover Hog Roast Devon Pie.
You will need
Leftover roast pork
1 large onion
2 carrots diced
1 stick celery
1 large cooking apple
4 large potatoes
1 tin chopped tomatoes
Peel apple, remove the core and slice into 5cm size slices. Add to pan with a small amount of butter and sprinkle a generous amount of sugar on top. Sizzle for a few minutes then turn them so that the sugar side in now down in the pan. Give this a couple of minutes then turn, repeat untill both sides are golden brown.
Taste a little they should be sweet and slightly sour, if not sweet enough add a little more sugar and give them another few minutes. Do not cook for too long, you want the slices to be whole not mushy. Set aside. You can hear the apple calling out to the hog roast devon.
Peel and par boil the potatoes until they are nearly cooked, they should be firm enough to slice. Set aside.
Dice carrots and fry in a little olive oil until they are taking on some colour on all sides. Add chopped onion and celery add garlic if required. Cook for 3/4 minutes until the onions are getting to be transparent. Add tin of chopped tomatoes bring to boil, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, taste and season, add leftover pork and stir in.
In a large oven proof dish add some of the mixture, then place a layer of caramelised apples on top, repeat this layer process until all the pork mixture and apples are used up.
Slice the potatoes into 10 cm size slices and arrange on top of the mixture. Season with salt and black pepper and add knobs of butter all over the potato.
Cook in a preheated oven at 180% for about 20/minutes or until the topping is golden brown.
