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.
