Step 1: Ingredients
2 pork chops.
2 clementines (could use tangerines or satsumas).
1 big leek.
2/3 cup red lentils.
1-2 tsp chopped fresh ginger root.
2 cloves of garlic.
1/2 tsp ground black pepper.
1 tsp marjoram.
1 tsp sage.
1 level tsp salt.
1 tablespoon olive oil.
1 tablespoon sunflower oil.
You will also need a big enough pot to hold all the ingredients, and a frying pan to sear the meat in.
Step 2: Chop and Fry the Onions
Step 3: Chop and Sear the Meat.
Step 4: Chop Vegetables.
The ginger and garlic should be crushed with the flat of a knife, then chopped finely. You put a big knife on top of the garlic, make a fist and hit the flat of the knife with the side of your fist (like you are banging on the table, not like you're hitting someone!). The garlic peels nicely after you've done this.
The tomatoes can be chopped roughly into eighths. The way I chop the clementines is to peel them then cut them in half 'equatorially' - i.e. with the stem end in one half and the other end in the other half. Having done this, you can break them into chunks and squeeze the pips out easily with your fingers.
Step 5: Add the Other Ingredients and Start Stewing
Once the meat is seared, you can add this and the tomatoes, leek and clementines to the pot. Then add enough water to nearly cover the ingredients.
Finally you can add the herbs, salt and lentils.
It now just needs to stew for about an hour (longer if you like your meat really tender). Turn up the heat to full until the liquid begins to boil, then turn it down until it's just bubbling slightly with the lid on.
Step 6: Serve and Eat
Hope you enjoy it!
