  1. Heat 1 tbsp of the sundried tomato oil in a large, flameproof casserole dish. Toss the pork in the flour, tap off any excess, then brown it in 2 batches, transferring to a large bowl once golden and crusted. Use a splash more oil for the second batch if needed.

  2. Tip 1 tbsp oil, shallots, onion, bay leaves and thyme into the pan and fry for 5 mins until golden here and there. Stir in the garlic and sundried tomatoes, cook for 1 min more, then tip onto the pork.

  3. Splash the wine and orange juice into the dish, add the orange zest and boil hard for 5 mins. Add the meat and onions back in.

  4. When ready to cook, heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Stir the stock, canned tomatoes, potatoes and olives into the casserole, then bring to a simmer. Prod the potatoes as far under the surface of the liquid as you can. Cover, leaving a slight gap to one side, then cook in the oven for 2½ hrs, or until the meat is tender enough to cut with a spoon. Spoon away any excess fat and let the stew rest for a few mins before ladling into shallow bowls.

My new favourite one pot recipe. Delicious. I used pork loin chops as this was what I looked for a recipe for. Good idea as it looked better on the plate I think. Only had a tub of Sainsbury's Manzanilla & Kalamata olives in the fridge & just used the black ones which were fine too.

The orange zest is quite strong so it doesn't need as much as the recipe states, but other than that this is really tasty &' I will definitely make again. I also didn't put potatoes in the one pot but did separate mash which went really nicely to soak up the sauce

This is yummy! Halved the recipe but still used the juice of a whole orange and that was perfect. Any less and I think you wouldn't have been able to taste it. Also used blood orange as they're in season and I have lots to use up! Very easy, satisfying and a hit with all the family.

Will definitely make this again! Lovely wintery food! Didn't have any of the problems mentioned in other comments about overpowering flavours. Just a hint of orange, from 2 small pieces of zest. I used a mix of green and black olives (crespo foil packs) and that wasn't overpowering either. We trimmed the fat off the pork before dicing and didn't need to skim any off at the end. We froze half of it, so will see how it is when defrosted and post again :D

Olives are sold with brine and without. Its not a matter of them being from Italy, Greece or anywhere else. Here in Italy they sell them with or without brine from Italy and Greece.

It was a lovely recipe and even better the day after. The 2nd time I'd forgotten the orange (!) so used lemon instead, which worked

Hello, Could you please tell me if this would work with wild boar too? Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your question. We haven't tested this with wild boar but there's no reason why it wouldn't work.

I wonder if this would work with a pork loin roast particularly if done at low temperature. Has anyone tried?

Presumably this recipe would work in a slow cooker? If so approximately how long?
