Duo of slow-cooked pork


Duo of slow-cooked pork
Two pork ingredients, smoked sausage and a shoulder joint here, are left to cook slowly on a bed of vegetables and herbs, moistened with a vegetable or poultry stock.

This is one of those crafty dishes that can be reheated over and over, getting better each time.

Add 2 cloves garlic, 2 bayleaves, 5 leaves sage and pour 1 litre 500 ml Vegetable stock over. The level of the stock should cover all the vegetables.

Put on the lid and cook in the oven at 300°F (150°C) for at least 4 hours.

Stage 9

After this time the meat should be "confite" (can be shredded with a fork) and the vegetables deliciously flavoured with a melting texture.

Serve directly on the table so that everyone can help themselves.

Remarks

The 4 hours cooking time is only a guide. Feel free to make it longer if you like, but then reduce the temperature to 270°F (130°C).

If you don't have vegetable stock, a chicken stock cube will work just fine.

And to drink?

A full-bodied red wine, from the Languedoc, for example.
