Rebooted Pork: A Recipe

Recording this for posterity.


  • Leftover roast pork (optimally home grown free range and happy, about which another post when I find the time), diced or thinly sliced.
  • A few onions, a couple of potatoes, some mushrooms, all thinly sliced.
  • Capsicum (red or green or both), diced.
  • Crushed garlic.
  • BBQ sauce (plus possibly tomato paste – see how you go).
  • Butter.
  • Salt.
  • Pepper (bonus points for Tasmanian bush pepper).
  • Oregano.
  • Cheese, chilli sauce, tortillas (optional).


  1. Heat frypan, add pork.
  2. Add onions and garlic, fry for a while.
  3. Add butter, potatoes, mushrooms, BBQ sauce, salt, pepper, oregano, fry some more.
  4. Cover, lower heat, add water and/or tomato paste if it seems necessary.
  5. Go away for at least half an hour. Check your email. Read Twitter. Do some actual useful work. But make sure you’re within smelling distance of the kitchen, just in case.
  6. Add capsicum.
  7. Wait a bit more, depending on how well done you like your capsicum.
  8. Serve, either in a bowl or wrapped in a tortilla, with or without cheese and chilli sauce according to taste.
