New Zealand Style Pork Boil Up

When it’s a cold winter’s weekend and you found a tasty sounding recipe in the Herald’s Bite Magazine, then why not take the recipe on paper and create it into real life by making some New Zealand Style Pork Boil Up!

This delicious soup is so easy to make and I love using the fresh ingredients which adds so much flavor. The variety of fresh flavors and textures allowed this dish to shine on its own, without having to add heaps of sauces (prebottled sauces = sugar!!) . Our family enjoyed this meal with some wine and toast!
