1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Heat a dash of oil in a flameproof casserole dish and brown the trimmed 100% New Zealand Pork Shoulder or Loin Chops over high heat. Remove from the dish and set aside.
2. Add the sliced leek and cook until it starts to soften. Stir in the smoked paprika. Pour over Wattie’s Extra Rich and Thick Condensed Tomato Soup, apple juice and water. Stir and bring to the boil.
3. Return the pork to the pan. Cover, transfer to the oven and cook for 1 1/4 hours. Add the drained Craig’s Chickpeas to the casserole and return to the oven for a further 15-20 minutes, or until the pork is cooked.
Serve with potatoes and seasonal vegetables.
