#KitchenClearout recipe : Pork & Apricot Curry

Earlier in the week, I had some roast pork to use up after Sunday dinner. Usually I just reheat it in gravy along with the chopped up leftover roast potatoes and veggies, but this time, I fancied doing something a bit different.

I decided to have a bit of a mini #KitchenClearout so I went to see if I had a jar of cooking sauce to jazz things up. I found a pouch of curry sauce that had a best before date of November 2015 (oops !) and digging a bit deeper, I found the end of a bag of dried apricots, a few flaked almonds from a baking challenge hamper and some coconut water. That sounded like the makings of a fab pork curry (and it had the added advantage of freeing up some cupboard space !).

 Pork & Apricot Curry

ingredients :

2 large onions
3 mushrooms
a drizzle of oil
some leftover roast pork (about 4 thick slices)
a handful of dried apricots
a pouch/jar of curry sauce
some coconut water (optional)
flaked almonds

Everything savoury in the Madhouse kitchen starts with a couple of chopped up onions ! Toss them in the pan with the oil and start to cook over a gentle heat while you quarter the mushrooms and chop the pork into cubes.

Throw in the pork and mushrooms and cook for 5-8 minutes until completely reheated.

Add the curry sauce and coconut water (or water) if needed. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Serve with rice and sprinkle with flaked almonds.
