Paprika Pork with Green Beans – 12sp

This is a really easy recipe and a proper winter warmer. It tastes lovely and creamy without being as naughty and its really filling. It’s really good to cook for just two people and as  you use tomato puree rather than chopped tomatoes so the quantities can be easily halved to make for one, or doubled to make for four!



Serves 2 = 12sp (previously 12pp) each

1 onion, finely sliced

200g pork steak cut into smallish chunks

2 small cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed

Pack of mushrooms, finely sliced

1 pepper, deseeded and sliced

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

Half teaspoon paprika

Quarter teaspoon cayenne pepper

Sprinkle of crushed chillies

1 tablespoon of tomato puree

250ml chicken stock (made with 1/2 chicken stock cube)

100ml half fat sour cream

120g dry long grain rice

Pack of Green Beans, trimmed


Fry your thinly sliced onion for 8-10 minutes until soft. Add the pork and continue to fry until pork is cooked. Add the garlic and cook for another minute then add mushrooms and peppers. Cook until the peppers and mushrooms start to soften 2-3 minutes. Add the smoked paprika, paprika and cayenne pepper, stir and cook for another minute. Then add the tomato puree and mix. Then pour your stock over the top. Add the crushed chillies. Simmer for 10 minutes until well combined.

Meanwhile cook your rice. I popped my rice on at the same time as I poured the stock onto the pork mixture and let the pork simmer for the same amount of time as it took the rice to cook. Three minutes before your rice is cooked throw a handful of green beans into the rice and water and let them cook in there (to avoid wasting another pan!). Once the pork is cooked through, take off the heat and stir through your sour cream and season well.

Serve in a nice deep bowl so you don’t waste any of the lovely sauce with the green beans on the side.

    I made this last night – I did one portion with Quorn for my veggie daughter and then doubled it up to make a four portion for the rest of us. It was a massive success for everyone – including my pretty fussy meat eating daughter, an empty plate from her. Lovely flavours.
