Preparation

Step 1

Put the slow cooker on low & add the chopped tomatoes & rinsed red kidney beans

Step 2

In a sauté or large frying pan, add enough oil to lightly cover the bottom. When the oil has warmed through, add the diced pork & season with salt & pepper. Cook just long enough for the meat to seal, then remove from the heat.

Step 3

Add the chopped onion, diced red & green peppers to the pork & mix together. Add the oregano, chilli, mixed herbs, rosemary, thyme, garlic, paprika & dashes of Worcestershire sauce to the pork mixture & stir again. Carefully transfer the pork mixture into the slow cooker.

Step 4

Add the mushrooms, tomato purée & bay leaves then carefully fold into the pork mixture. Replace the lid & leave for approx. 8 hours.

Step 5

When ready to eat, serve in bowls with slices of cheese across the top of the casserole & thick slices of fresh crusty bread. Enjoy!

I use dried herbs, but if you want to use fresh ones put them in for the last 30-45 minutes of cooking time. If you put them in at the beginning, the flavours will be lost.
After serving let the cheese 'melt' over the Pork & Beans. It tastes wonderful.
