3. Add 320 ml of boiling water to it and leave for 5 mins
4. Serve immediately by making circle of cous cous in a circle

Tip 1:  This should be one-third of your pork joint so the bigger the joint, the more meat you can add to the pineapple and peppers.  This meal is to use up all leftover meat.

Tip 2:  If you do have any meat over, use it up in sandwiches next day with apple, apple sauce as made previously, or coleslaw.
