A hearty and comforting dish with pork, sausages, bacon and vegetables, topped with fluffy dumplings and baked in the oven.

  1. Preheat your oven to 180˚C / 160˚C fan / Gas 4.
  2. Heat some oil in a large oven-proof pot and add the pork, sausages, bacon, onion and garlic.
  3. Heat the mixture gently until the meat begins to brown and the onions soften.
  4. Now, add in all the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil. Once the dish is bubbling, add a lid and cook in the oven for 1½ hours or until the pork is tender.
  5. With the pork cooking, it’s time to make the dumplings. Place all of the ingredients for the dumplings into a bowl. Add a little cold water to bind the mix together then shape into around 8-10 dumplings.
  6. Place the dumplings on top of the pork and cook for 20 minutes (10 minutes with the lid on, 10 minutes with it off).
  7. Serve with steamed seasonal vegetables.
