Paprika Pork with Red Peppers : Perfect 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.

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

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.

Being Hungarian, I love me some paprika. Use it often. Though I also love the Spanish paprika too. So yummy in so many dishes. Go food. Yeah!

Might try a version of this with chicken and a different spice--Bill doesn't like paprika. Thanks for the idea! said...

We had this yesterday with thick slices of roast pork from the end of a joint. It is delicious and I am so glad I made enough for tonight as well.
Thank you, Jean x
