Paprika Pork with Red Peppers : Low Carb Dinner



Just lightly spiced and satisfyingly creamy, this pork recipe needs only a handful of ingredients, and the addition of sliced red peppers gives the dish more depth and texture.

INGREDIENTS:
Serves Four
4 pork chops or escalope's
1 onion
1 clove garlic
2 red peppers
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp tomato puree
200ml chicken or vegetable stock
200ml crème fraiche
Chopped fresh parsley

METHOD:
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the pork chops or escalope's for two minutes on each side until lightly golden brown. Remove to a plate.

Finely slice the onion, peppers and garlic and add to the pan you had sealed the pork in. Cook over a moderate heat for about ten minutes until soft and translucent.

Stir in the tomato puree and then pour over the stock. Return the pork to the pan and simmer for five minutes until slightly syrupy. Add the crème fraiche and some seasoning and simmer for two more minutes before stirring in a handful of chopped fresh parsley.

Serve with mashed swede (rutabaga) or cauliflower rice, and perhaps some green beans.

I cooked with peppers the other night for my meatnpotatoes wife, and she scowled at me for two days.

"Paprikas" is a Hungarian cooking technique which can be applied to many things - after chicken my favorite is mushrooms.
This pork version looks very good.

Never use paprika with pork.

Sounds yummy! I don't cook pork chops nearly as often as I used to, because most of them are so lean nowadays, they dry out much too easily and don't have nearly as much taste as they did in the past. This recipe sounds like a good way to get around that problem. :) Thanks!

Happy New Year to you and yours!

I don't eat pork, but everything else with red peppers is a sheer delight for me. In fact, I'm a great fan of all kinds of pepper.
