Slow-cooked Pork

A really quick, easy recipe

On No Count, the whole dish is 2 points so it’s up to you whether to count it as one of your weeklies.  If tracking, it would be 12 points per serving, including the rice.


Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 4 lean pork steaks
  • a red onion, sliced
  • 3 celery sticks, chopped
  • a courgette, sliced
  • 100g sweetcorn
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 x 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 200ml chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp capers, in brine
  • 1 tbsp pomegranate molasses (2 points)


Place all the ingredients into a slow-cooker and season well.  I cooked this on low for five hours, but my slow cooker does cook quickly.

Served here with 50g of brown rice.

  1. where in the world would I find pomegranate molasses? I’ve made this today but used ordinary molasses and just put 2 tsp in, no idea how it tastes yet!

    1. Hi, I’ve had mine for a while and can’t quite remember where I bought them from. Think it was either Booths or Asda:-) Helen xxx
