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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
