This hearty one-pot is full of Mediterranean flavor, with pork, red onion, peppers and smoked paprika – an impressive 4 of your 5 a day
350g lean pork mince
2 tsp olive oil
1 large red onion, chopped
2 peppers, sliced, any color will do
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp sweet smoked paprika
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
400g can butter beans, drained
2 tsp golden caster sugar
small bunch parsley, chopped
crusty bread, to serve (optional)
Season the pork, working the seasoning in with your hands, then shape into small meatballs. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the meatballs and cook for 5 mins, until golden brown all over. Push to one side of the pan and add the onion and peppers. Cook for a further 5 mins, stirring now and then, until the veg has softened, then stir in the garlic and paprika. Stir everything around in the pan for 1 min, then add the tomatoes. Cover with a lid and simmer for 10 mins.
Uncover, stir in the beans, the sugar and some seasoning, then simmer for a further 10 mins, uncovered. Just before serving, stir in the parsley. Serve with crusty bread for dunking, if you like.
