Estimated Prep Time: 60 minutes

Estimated Cooking Time: 120 minutes Cooking at: 350 F / 180 C / Gas Mark 4



Grease and set aside an ovenproof dish. Prefer a shallow dish with more surface, such as an 8 x 15 inch (20 x 38 cm) rectangular pan.

Cook 4 of the potatoes and mash them.

Chop up the meat, and heat it up in a frying pan. Add the minced onion, and when both are lightly browned, season to taste with salt, pepper and coriander, and savoury if using, and set aside.

Peel and grate the rest of the potatoes (raw.) Press the grated potato in a towel to extract as much water as possible. Mix the mashed potato, the grated potato, and the cooked pork and onion. If using, sprinkle the diced salt pork on top. Transfer the mixture to an ovenproof dish, and bake for two hours at 350 F (175 C.) Serve hot.
