This is one of DH's favourite pork recipes. He found it on a supermarket recipe card and, if he had his way, he would cook it every week! He often adds more winter squash than the amount indicated.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet and stir-fry the diced pork in two batches until browned.
  3. Add ginger, garlic, coriander, cumin and paprika, and stir fry a further minute to cook the spices.
  4. Add chili sauce, squash, spinach, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste), and chicken stock, and mix well.
  5. Transfer contents of skillet to a casserole dish, cover tightly and cook in the oven for 45 minutes.
  6. Check once or twice during cooking that the liquid has not evaporated, and add a little more stock if necessary.
  7. When the meat and squash are tender, stir through the fresh cilantro and serve with rice.

This was REALLY good! Even my kids loved it! I followed exactly except used zucchini instead of winter squash just because that's what I had on hand and it was delicious. I can't wait to try again with winter squash. This is a keeper!

This was really really good. We all loved the flavor with the seasonings used. I wanted something different than a pork chop / apple dish. I didn't have pumpkin so used an acorn squash. Also my pork was already cooked and I was looking for a dish to use it up. It was crock pot short ribs so nice and tender and worked really well in this casserole. Served it over a brown rice. Definitely one of my keepers.

I did this recipe in a tagine, but added 1 cup of wine, also added 1.5 lb of lamb cubes with the pork and doubled the spices. The house smelled delicious. It was mouth watering
