Ingredients

  • vegetable oil 2 tbsp
  • pork shoulder 500g, trimmed of all fat and cut into 3cm cubes
  • onion 1, finely chopped
  • green pepper 1, finely chopped
  • garlic 3 cloves, finely chopped
  • smoked paprika 1 tbsp
  • hot chilli powder ½ tsp
  • tomato purée 1 tbsp
  • chopped tomatoes 400g tin
  • mixed beans 2 x 400g tins, drained and rinsed
  • ready-cooked grains pouch (we used Merchant Gourmet Super Seed Mix) 2 x 250g packs
  • flat-leaf parsley ½ a small bunch, finely chopped
  • half-fat soured cream 3 tbsp

Method

  • Step 1

    Heat ½ the oil in a casserole, season the pork and fry, in batches, for 3-4 minutes until browned. Scoop onto a plate with a slotted spoon. Add the remaining oil and fry the onion, pepper and garlic with a large pinch of salt for 10 minutes until soft. Add the spices and tomato purée, and cook for a few minutes. Pour in the chopped tomatoes and 250ml of water, add the pork back in, season and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down low, put on a lid and simmer gently for 2 hours.

  • Step 2

    Tip in the beans and simmer for another 30 minutes or until the pork is very tender.

  • Step 3

    Heat the grains according to pack instructions and divide between bowls. Spoon over the pork and beans, and top with a little parsley and soured cream.
