Recipe: 1 Hour Fruity Pork and Apricot Casserole

Finished Fruit and Pork Casserole

Anyone who knows me knows I love cooking but those who really know me also know I like easy, minimum fuss food. If we're having a 'special' meal I'm more than happy to spend all day preparing, cooking and generally busying myself with the table. Normal, everyday food can become as tedious for me as to the next person, so when that happens I'm more likely or not to experiment and find a new 'one pot meal'.

Short preparation, dish popped into the oven and that's - more or less - it. I often find these dishes quicker to prepare than some 'convenience' foods. I've always liked fruit cooked into a main dish, North African couscous meals are always a hit with my taste buds. So today along those lines I experimented and came up with a variation on a classic Pork Casserole and we ate Fruity Pork and Apricot Casserole.
