I made this in the slow cooker and i thought it was bland. No one enjoyed it, I would not reccomend this recipe.

We enjoyed this dish, but would add extra seasoning next time because it was a bit bland.

This is an easy winter meal. I suggest adding plenty of salt and pepper to bring out the flavour as pork can be bland without seasoning.

I wouldn't cook this again - the kids thought the leeks were horrible.

I often adapt recipes to what I have on hand. I used 450g pork and 200g bacon, replaced the leek with an onion, omitted the wine and used 400g dolmio pasta bake with mushroom. I cooked this in the oven. It was yummy and tasty. The bacon enhanced the flavour of the dish. Will make again.

It was easy to cook and everyone enjoyed it. Probably wouldn't cook it again unless I had all the ingredients sitting in the kitchen.

This was sooooooo easy and the meat came out so tender in the crockpot. Kids loved it too. Did seem very bland though and missing some sort of seasoning - couldn't put my finger on it. Would cook again just for kids or if I could find they mystery ingredient it needs to bring it up to par.

I read your comments below and have to say that if you don't taste your food before you dish it up - and whilst you're making it, what do you expect? I added a couple of tablespoons of the 14 Spice Dry Rub (Google it) and after an hour in the crockpot on high, it's starting to taste magic.
