Tasty Tuesday Teatime

I'd like to share with you our simple and tasty tea from today. It's based on the Hairy Bikers' Spicy Pork and Rice dish, with a few modifications. It's dead easy, one pot and blooming tasty.

First Soften an Onion, cut into wedges, in a little olive oil, fry for about 3 minutes.

Add about 500g of Pork loin, seasoned with salt and pepper and cut into strips, to the onion and brown, then I added 2 peppers cut into strips, some Chorizo sausage, two cloves and garlic and fried for a couple of minutes until the oil started to come out of the Chorizo. I also added a couple of chopped tomatoes as they needed eating up.

I added 1/2 teaspoon of chilli flakes, 1 teaspoon each of ground coriander and cumin and a little salt to season. stir this to combine with the mixture.

I added 300g of rinsed rice - I used a fragrant long grain rice and mixed in with the meat and vegetables.

Add some chicken stock, you need just enough to be absorbed by the rice - my method is to double the volume of the rice - (e.g. 1 cup of rice = two cups of stock) In this case I added 750ml of Stock.

I then added some broccoli Florets and brought to the boil. Stir, cover and reduce the heat to a low simmer until all the liquid is absorbed and the rice and meat are cooked. add extra liquid if needed. I found this took about 20 minutes.

Serve with a green Salad and a nice glass of wine.

If you haven't got the Hairy Bikers healthy eating books I can highly recommend them. They provide great recipes that become family favourites and are healthy as well.
