  • 1 kg pork loin sliced
  • 400 g cauliflower rice
  • 720 ml chicken stock
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 sticks celery roughly diced
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 cloves garlic finely sliced
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 small green bell pepper sliced into thin strips
  • 1 large tomato finely diced
  • ½ small white onion finely chopped
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp celery salt
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • tsp black pepper
  • fresh coriander (cilantro) to serve


  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan or casserole dish over a medium heat. Add the pork strips and fry until browned all over. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in the pan and add the celery, onion, green pepper and garlic. Sweat the vegetables gently in the oil until tender.
  • Add the tomato puree to the pan along with the dried herbs and spices. Stir well to combine with the vegetables.
  • Add the stock to the pan and stir well. Return the pork strip to the pan and simmer for 20 minutes until piping hot and the pork is cooked through.
  • Add the cauliflower rice to the pan and stir into the stock. Continue to simmer until almost all of the liquid has been absorbed and the cauliflower rice is fluffy.
  • Divide into portions and scatter with fresh coriander to serve. Leave any leftover portions to cool completely before freezing.

  1. This is a nice, simple to cook, tasty stew. I’ve part cooked it on the stove top, and finished it off in the slow cooker. I added the cauliflower rice when I was preparing a simple salad to go with it. I’ve also put some soured cream on my plate. It takes some of the heat out. I think my teaspoons of cayenne pepper were a bit too heaped. However, it was delicious and filling.
