Makes: 10 servings of 1 and 1/3 cup Total Time: 1 hr
Category: Dinner Entrees Sub Category: Pork Entrees

what you need
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons rum (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic plus 2 tablespoons chopped garlic, divided
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless pork chops (3/4-1 inch thick), trimmed, cut into cubes
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 cups Arborio rice or short-grain brown rice
  • 2 cans (14-ounce each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed
  • 1/4 teaspoon saffron threads (see Note) [missing note]
  • 16 large raw shrimp (21-25 per pound), peeled and deveined (optional)
  • 2 cups frozen artichoke hearts, thawed, or cooked green beans, fresh or frozen, thawed
  • 1/2 cup roasted red peppers, cut into strips
make it
1. Combine paprika, lime juice, 2 tablespoons oil, rum (if using), 2 teaspoons minced garlic, oregano, salt, pepper and cumin in a medium bowl, stirring to make a homogeneous paste. Add pork and stir to coat.

2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the pork, leaving any excess spice mixture in the bowl to add later. Cook the pork, stirring, until just cooked on the outside and the spices are very fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the pork to a plate.

3. Add onion and the remaining 2 tablespoons garlic to the pan and cook, stirring often, until the onion is softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring, until well coated with the onion mixture. Stir in broth, tomatoes, capers, saffron and any remaining spice mixture. (If using brown rice, also add 3/4 cup water now.) Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a low simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes for Arborio, 30 minutes for brown rice.

4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Stir shrimp (if using) and artichokes (or green beans) into the rice. Cover and bake for 20 minutes. Stir in the pork and any accumulated juices from the plate; scatter roasted peppers on top. Cover and continue baking until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed (if you’ve added shrimp, they should be opaque and pink), 10 to 15 minutes more.
