Chef Ray: Pork Green Chilli

Pork is a great ingredient because it cooks fast and remains tender. This green chilli goes well with rice or flat breads.

From: Thomas, Biju & Lim, Allen (2011) The Feedzone Cookbook – Fast and Flavorful Food for Athletes Velo Press

Serves 4

  • ¼ cup gluten-free flour (rice/potato/corn)
  • 2 pounds (1kg) pork, cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2-4 chillies (such as anaheim’s or jalapenos), chopped
  • 2 cups potatoes, cubed (skin left on if for post-ride)
  • 2 tablespoons chilli powder
  • stock or water
  • 1 cup canned red beans, rinsed

Optional Additions

  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  1. Heat a large stock pot to medium-high with enough oil to cover the bottom. While the pot is heating, mix flour with a dash each of salt and pepper, then toss pork pieces in flour mixture, coating all sides.
  2. Add pork to pot and stir gently to sear all sides. Add the onions, chillies, potatoes, and chilli powder; stir. Pour enough water or stock in the pot to completely cover the vegetables and pork. Add any optional ingredients also at this point.
  3. Bring to a boil, then turn heat down to a simmer. Cook at a simmer, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender and pork has cooked, about 20-30 minutes. Add beans, stir, and adjust flavour with salt and pepper.

Top with chopped cilantro (coriander), more chopped chillies and plain yoghurt.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
