  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Heat half of the olive oil in a large, heavy-based casserole dish set over a moderate heat. Season then sear the pork chunks until golden brown in colour all over.
  3. Remove from the dish, then add the remaining olive oil and sautée the onion, carrot and potato for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the pork and prunes to the dish, then pour in the cider and stock. Bring to the boil, then cover with a lid and transfer to the oven to roast for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove when cooked and adjust the seasoning as necessary. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving from the dish.

Freezing and defrosting guidelines

Cook as instructed and allow to cool completely. Then transfer to an airtight, freezer-safe container, seal and freeze for up to 1-3 months. To serve, defrost thoroughly in the fridge overnight before reheating. To reheat and serve, place on medium heat, stirring occasionally until the dish is heated through.
