Method

 
Blanch the pork for 5 minutes.
Drain well.
Place the pork, potatoes, mushrooms, leeks, seasoning, red wine and water in an ovenproof dish with a lid.
Stir slowly to ensure all the ingredients are covered in the red wine mixture.
Cover with a sheet of buttered greaseproof paper and force the lid down over it, to seal.
Cook in a preheated oven at 190ºC for 1 1/2 to 2 hours without removing the lid.
When cooked, pour off three quarters of the liquid and skim off all the fat.
Garnish with tomato halves and bake for a further 20 minutes without the lid.
Serve with thin slices of wholemeal bread.
