Paprika Pork

December 9, 2011 by Daniel C

This chunky, goulash-style dish is rich with peppers and paprika. Grilling the peppers before adding them to the meat really brings out their sweet, vibrant flavour. Rice or buttered boiled potatoes go particularly well with the rich pork.

45ml/ 3 tbsp paprika
300g/11oz jar or tub of tomato sauce with herbs or garlic

2. Meanwhile, cut the pork into chunks. Season with salt and pepper and cook in a non-stick frying pan for about 5 minutes, until beginning to brown.

3. Transfer the meat to a heavy pan and add the paprika, tomato sauce, 300ml/1/2pint/ 1 1/4cups water and a little seasoning. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat cover and simmer gently for 30 minutes.

4. Add the grilled (broiled) peppers and cook for a further 10-15 minutes, until the meat is tender, taste for seasoning and serve immediately.
