Chefs tips
  • You can use any beans, such as kidney beans, blackeyed peas or mixed beans.
  • Chunks of chicken or turkey work well instead of pork.
  • For a veggie version, add 200g button mushrooms and marinated tofu pieces in place of the meat.
  • Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing once cooked. Defrost in the fridge and reheat until piping hot throughout.
