Spanish Pork

March 14, 2011

I made this one a long time ago and forgot to add the recipe to my file.  I could not find ground pork anywhere so I threw some boneless pork chops in my vitamix and ground them up.  It worked just fine but any other lean ground meat could be substituted.

1 zucchini, sliced in 1/2″ rounds

1 medium onion, sliced in 1/2″ rounds

1 1/2 tsp olive oil

4 cloves garlic, chopped into slivers

3/4 lb extra lean ground pork

1 c. frozen peas

1 c. frozen corn

1 T paprika

1 red bell pepper, minced

1 med tomato, chopped

1/2 lemon, juiced

1/2 tsp dried sage

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1 oz goat cheese

salt and pepper to taste

Sautee zucchini and onion in oil for 3 minutes.  Add garlic and stir constantly for 1 minute.  Stir in pork, peas, corn, paprika.  Cook 5 more minutes, making sure all ingredients are evenly distributed.  Stir in bell pepper, tomato and lemon juice.  Cover until cooked through and vegetables are tender.  Serve with goat cheese crumbled on top.

Serve with roasted new potatoes.
