Neven Maguire’s Pork Goulash With Cauliflower Rice

Neven writes: “Goulash was one of my mom’s regular dinners when I was growing up, and I loved it. I now like to serve it with cauliflower rice, which has a similar texture to rice but a much lower GI. Contrary to popular belief, a true goulash doesn’t contain any soured cream, making for a much healthier dinner.”

Ingredients for?Pork Goulash with Cauliflower Rice
Serves 4-6

2 tbsp plain flour
2 tsp smoked paprika
500g (1lb 2oz) pork stir-fry strips
2 tbsp olive oil
2 onions, thinly sliced
2 green peppers, cored and cut into slices
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
120ml (4 floz) red wine
1 x 400g (14oz) can of chopped tomatoes
200ml (7fl oz) beef or chicken stock
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp tomato pur?e
1 tsp honey
2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

CAULIFLOWER RICE:
1 head of cauliflower
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Step 1: Place the flour and smoked paprika in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Use this to evenly coat the pork strips, tipping away any excess flour.
Step 2: Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a flameproof casserole over a medium heat and quickly brown the pork on all sides. Don’t put too much pork in the casserole at once or it won’t brown – it’s best to fry it in batches. Transfer the meat to a plate and set aside.
Step 3: Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the casserole, then saut? the onions, green peppers, garlic and dried oregano for about 5 minutes, until the vegetables are just beginning to catch a bit of colour. Return the pork to the casserole and stir to combine. Pour in the wine and allow it to bubble down, scraping the bottom of the casserole with a wooden spoon to remove any sediment.
Step 4: Add the tomatoes, stock, Worcestershire sauce, tomato pur?e, honey and a good pinch of sea salt and black pepper and bring up to a steady simmer. Place the lid on the casserole and simmer for another 20 minutes or so, until the pork is completely tender.
Step 5: To make the cauliflower rice, cut the hard core and stalks from the cauliflower and pulse the rest in a food processor to make grains the size of rice.
Step 6: Line the base of a steamer with parchment paper, tip in the cauliflower and cook for 8?10 minutes, until tender. Season with salt and pepper, then fluff up with a fork.
Divide the cauliflower rice among warmed plates, then spoon over the pork goulash. Garnish with the parsley to serve.
