This super simple one-pot pork paella is made all the easier by the addition of a ready-made paella mix – the perfect seasoning for this savoury dish. Whip up this stunning midweek meal in just half an hour with our easy recipe.
- Over a medium-high heat, warm the oil in a large frying pan or paella pan. Add the pork and chopped onion and fry for 5 minutes, stirring frequently to drive off the water and brown the meat.
- Add the rice to the mince and onion, fry for 2 minutes until you can hear the rice crackling slightly. Pour in 700ml (1 1/4pt) hot water from the kettle along with the paella mix. Stir to combine all of the ingredients, cover with a lid, add more water if you think it needs it, reduce the heat to low and cook for 15 minutes, or until the rice is tender with just a little bite.
- Put the peas on top of the cooked paella, gently fork them through to heat up them up. Remove the paella from the heat, and allow to rest for 5 minutes, season with plenty of salt and pepper before serving.
