TOP TIP

  • Set aside 2 cups of pork before serving to make a second lunch or dinner with one of our other ideas on opposite page.
  • For creamy polenta, bring 2 cups stock, 2 cups milk and 60g butter to the boil in a saucepan. Reduce to a simmer. Slowly whisk in 1 cup polenta, stirring constantly 10-15 minutes, until polenta comes away from sides of pan. Turn off heat and stir in ½ cup grated parmesan. Season to taste.
