Pork and Potato Casserole
I started with one green pepper and onion. I cut them in strips and fried them and some dehydrated mushrooms in a pan with a little lard (a tsp or so) until the onions were translucent and the peppers were just slightly soft. I moved the pepper mix aside in the pan and opened two jars of canned pork and poured the stock out of the jars into the pan where there wasn't anything. I added maybe an 1/8 to a 1/4 cup of flour and stirred it into the stock until it thickened. I added some salt and pepper and then stirred it all into the pepper mix. I added the pork and mixed just a minute until it was well coated.
This was the first layer of the casserole. I spread it out in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
I went and got two jars of canned potatoes and drained them. These I put on top of the pork mixture and then sprinkled grated Parmesan cheese on top (it was the only cheese that I had or I would have used something else).
This went into the refrigerator until Phil got home and then he cooked it in the oven (350 degrees) for about 20 minutes. I am sure it would have made a much nicer picture if I had gotten to take one when he first pulled it out but by the time I got home it was half gone so I could only get a picture of what went into my bowl.
It was delicious though!
