It's a great example of how we are taking frozen meals to a whole new level! Learn how chefs Dave and Charlotte created this awesome meal below...
What's in it?
Pork Shoulder: A great cut of meat that lends itself perfectly to long and slow cooking. You'll enjoy an abundance of flavoursome pork in this meal!
White Quinoa: This type of quinoa is the least textural you can buy which may surprise you that we chose it. Both red and black quinoa have a crunchy texture when cooked whereas white quinoa cooks up softer and more fluffy which is the texture we were looking to achieve to contrast the ingredients below.

Corn: We love these little bursts of flavour and crunch! Sweet corn is always a great way to add natural sweetness into dishes without adding refined sugar which is important to us at We Feed You. The sweet corn also adds a lovely visual element - and given many people eat with their eyes first impressions are important!
Black beans: Dave loves working with black beans. You can braise them, boil them and fry them. They can be a garnish for a meal or they can be the hero! We use them in this dish for texture and flavour.
How does it all come together?
The end meal works in many ways but the main one that stands out is the flavour of the pork! This is achieved by our 2 step cooking process:
Step one is making the sauce that the pork is going to be cooked in. This is as important as the actual cooking of the pork itself. The sauce requires exact measurements so all of the flavours are well balanced when completed.
Step two is the cooking of the pork: long and slow! It's also important to remove all the fat and skin as this will mask some of the flavour we have spent so much time to create.
The culmination of these two steps is a wonderful meal that has become of firm favourite for our customers. Enjoy!
