Smoked pork hock with a lentil stew

Method

 

  • Heat a little oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan and briefly sauté the celery, capsicum, carrot, onion and garlic, regularly stirring.
  • Add ½ can tomatoes with a decent amount of seasonings and the lentils. Mix well and add the stock, thyme and parsley. Stir, turn the heat down and rapidly simmer until thick and fragrant and the vegies and lentils are almost tender.
  • When ready, place the pork on top of the vegies and bury in the sauce. Then cover and gently cook for about 8-10 mins. Remove the thyme and taste the sauce for seasoning.
  • To serve, spoon a bed of the lentil mixture in individual flat soup bowls and top with the pork.
