great tasty dish and easy to do. Love the fact that everything is in the one pan, less washing. Have past the recipe to those who have tasted it.

Really enjoyed this, so easy and quick to prepare. Added thinly sliced apple wedges as suggested and found it added a tasty something extra.

We all absolutely love this recipe! It's a firm family favourite and I've taken to making it about once a week as it's also so easy!

Delicious. I used leeks instead of onions, and used about a cup of stock to start with.

This is a really tasty meal. I added carrots, and also more stock to make a thin sauce. Simple and warming.

in fact i love this so much i have it most evenings with a crunchie blast!

Really tasty, easy dish. I think that the people that haven't enjoyed it either haven't cooked it properly, or it isn't to their taste - and that's not a reason to rate it so low!!

If you don't like the taste of a recipe then of course it is a reason to rate it low.

Agree with Amie and Eimss! Will not be making again. This is yet the only item I've made from this web site that I've disliked.

didn't like it too much at all. would prefer just chop, mash and mustard i think. won't be doing it again.

This took ages longer than stated to cook. the potatoes were still a bit undercooked. The kids hated the mustardy taste! I followed the instructions exactly so not sure what went wrong with timings. Potatoes were thinly sliced! Won't be making again.

Made this the other night, so easy and tasty. Plus it was cheep to make. Will be making it again very soon

Delicious and really easy. Used pork steaks, and leeks instead of onions as had them in the fridge. I cooked the potatoes for 35 minutes before adding the pork. Also put back into the oven rather than grill, which made a really nice sauce. Will definitely do it again.

This is very tasty but also very rich and filling.
