  • My Favourite Recipe – Pork and Rice


    I don’t really do much in the way of cooking, I am quite hopeless at it, lucky for me I married a chef.

    This is a recipe from The Hairy Dieters Cookbook – Eat for Life. I love these guys.

    All-In-One Spicy Pork and Rice



    2tsp Olive Oil

    1 medium onion, sliced into thin wedges

    500g pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 1cm slices

    50g chorizo sausage, skinned and cut into 5mm slices

    2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

    1 red and 1 orange pepper, deseeded and sliced

    100g green beans, trimmed and cut into short lengths

    1 tsp ground cumin

    1 tsp ground coriander

    ½ tsp hot chilli powder

    150g easy-cook long-grain rice

    750ml chicken stock, made with 1 stock cube

    Flaked sea salt

    Freshly ground black pepper

    Serves 4

    Prep 15 minutes

    Cooking time about 30 minutes

    We used mild chilli powder and gluten free sausages too.


    Heat the oil in a large, non-stick deep frying pan or sauté pan. Fry the onion wedges over medium-high heat for 3 minutes until they’re softened and lightly browned, stirring regularly.

    Season the pork with salt and black pepper, then add it to the pan and stir-fry with onion for 2 minutes until lightly browned. Add the chorizo, garlic, peppers and beans and stir-fry together for 2 minutes more. Sprinkle with spices and stir in the rice, then pour over the stock and bring to the boil.

    Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, stirring regularly, until the liquid had been absorbed and the rice and pork are both lovely and tender.
