Jamaican Pork with Rice ‘n’ Beans
14 ProPoints™ values per serving (28 ProPoints™ values per recipe)
Takes 15 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook
What you need:
227g can pineapple rings in natural juice
2 tablespoons of canned pineapple juice
2 tablespoons jerk spices
2 x 150g lean pork loin steaks, visible fat removed
80g dried long grain rice
400 g can black beans, drained
1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
What to do:
1. Preheat your oven to gas mark 5/190°C or 170°C for fan assisted ovens. Place two pineapple rings at the base of a small ovenproof dish. Mix together the reserved pineapple juice and the Jerk spices into a paste. Smear the paste over both sides of the pork steaks and sit them on top of the pineapple rings. Set this aside to marinate for 10 minutes. A good tip is to poke the steaks with a tooth pick before smearing on the marinade as this will help to flavours to really get in there.
2. Once your oven has preheated, bake the pork for 15-20 minutes until just cooked through.
3. While your pork is cooking, bring a large lidded pan of water to the boil and add the rice and cook for 10-12 minutes. Drain the rice and stir in the beans, cover with a lid and leave for 5 minutes until the beans have been warmed by the steam off the rice. Stir in the coriander and season.
4. Serve the pork steaks with a pineapple ring over each and the rice with and juices spooned over.
