You could use different fruit etc peach nectarine, I ordered Nectarines to make this but plumbs arrived and I still absolutely loved it. The kids again loved this.  The sweet and sour mix was a really hit.

Rather than cook the veg in a pan I added the broccoli and asparagus in the slow cooker on top of the meat for 30 minutes. Perfectly done.

Ingredients

NB when preparing ingredients those in the same colour can be mixed in the same bowl as they are used in the cooking process at the same time. Those in black are to remain separate.

  2. Heat the oil in a large heavy sided frying pan medium high heat, Add the onion and fry until soft. Cover on high for 3 hrs or low for 5-6.

Glaze:

  1. 20 minutes before you wish to eat Add all the ingredients into a sauce pan. Orange juice, Rice wine Vinegar, Honey, black pepper and cardamon pods. bring to simmer, simmer and reduce for 20 minutes until it thickens.

Fruit:

  1. Fry the fruit and onions in a small frying pan cut side down, until they start to caramelize but keep there shape, 10-15 minutes.

 

I serve this with Mash potato Asparagus tips and tender stalk broccoli. To serve Put everything on the plate and drizzle with the glaze.
