I’m back! I know it’s been pretty quiet on Eating Covent Garden recently as I’ve been doing a lot of travelling. Gathering exciting stories and recipe ideas for all my readers, naturally. While I do love exploring the world it’s always great to get home – and to get back into the kitchen. And I was particularly looking forward to creating some exciting new recipes using my new range from Morsø.

Today I’m cooking in my beautiful new Morsø Piaf. I love the look and feel of this dish and it inspired me to come up with a wonderfully tasty recipe.
My brand new, stylish Morso Piaf
Barbecue pulled pork bake
Crisp and golden straight out of the oven
I love the comfort of a shepherd’s pie and here I’ve come up with a kind of pork version using slow cooked pork with a tangy barbecue sauce. If you don’t have a slow cooker you can do the pork in the oven on very low, just make sure you keep an eye on it.
I added sour cream and finely chopped spring onions to the mash which gave it a lovely something extra.
For the pulled pork
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1 boneless pork shoulder roast (crackling removed)
1 can French onion soup
1 cup of tomato ketchup
2 tbsps cider vinegar
3 tbsps brown sugar
Heat the oil in a frying pan to a medium-high heat. Fry the pork until it is well browned on all sides.
Pour the onion soup, ketchup vinegar and sugar into your slow cooker and stir. Add the pork and make sure it’s well coated with the sauce.
Cook on a medium-low heat for 4-5 hours.
Remove the pork and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Then shred it, using two forks.
The pork simmers slowly in the tangy sauce
For the potato topping
3 tbsps sour cream
1 bunch of spring onions, finely diced
Peel the potatoes and boil until the are soft.
Mash with the sour cream and spring onions.
For the bake
2 tbsps barbecue sauce
1 can sweetcorn
1 egg, beaten
Add the barbecue sauce to the mixture you cooked the pork in.
Now start layering. First layer the pulled pork on the bottom.
The melt-in-the-mouth pulled pork makes the base
Then spoon over about three-quarters of the sauce.
The tangy sauce is added to cover the pork
Add the sweetcorn as the next layer.
Sweetcorn adds colour and crunch
Top with the mashed potatoes.
Brush the top of the potato with the beaten egg.
The pie is topped with potato and ready for the oven
Cook in the oven for about 30mins at 180C until it’s golden on top and slightly bubbling.
Up close to the luscious filling
This is one of my favourite recipes I’ve ever come up with. The best pork pie ever!
Now that I’m inspired by my exciting new range of pans, there’s plenty more to come, so watch this space. I’ll be doing lots more cooking with Morso.
