I first cooked this recipe 30 years ago for a bonfire party and tripled the ingredients to serve 12 people - the cooking time does not need extending if you are doing this. I serve it with crusty french bread or jacket potatoes. Don't worry about it swimming in fat from the belly pork as the initial browning releases a lot of fat and the rest is soaked up during the slow cooking. If you use a crockpot, the juices won't thicken and you will need to do that separately. Please note that if you are doubling or tripling the recipe, you will need to brown the meat and onions in batches.
