Trinidadian pepper pot pork stew

Serves 5
Prep time: 25 mins
Cooking time: 7 hours

"When it is cold, there is nothing more I crave than this Trinidadian stew that has Indian, Chinese and African influences. I serve it to my friend Taren, she always ends up licking the plate! This is my version of this Caribbean favourite using a crock pot. To be served over mash or rice."
