DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Bring water to a boil in a saucepan and turn down to a simmer.
  • Brown pork in a skillet over medium-high heat. Do this in batches so as not to crowd your pan. Remove pork to a 9" x 13" casserole dish.
  • Saute your vegetables in the pork fat which has accumulated in your skillet, scraping the pan to get all the good stuff.
  • Add rice and stir to coat grains with fat; then add tomato paste, spices and salt and stir to combine.
  • Add rice mixture to pork in casserole.
  • Pour most of the water over the pork and rice, saving about 1/2 cup to deglaze your skillet. Pour water from skillet to casserole and stir to combine.
  • Cover tightly with foil and place in the oven to bake about 45 minutes, until pork and rice are tender (don't check before 30 minutes).
