  • 2 Tbsp. garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1 ½ lbs. Smithfield Prime Boneless Fresh Pork Loin, sliced thinly into bite-sized strips
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 cups quick cooking brown rice
  • 1 ½ cup chicken broth

  1. Heat garlic-infused olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add strips of Smithfield Prime Boneless Fresh Pork Loin and cook until almost done, about 8 minutes. Stir in diced red bell pepper and saute for 2 minutes more.
  2. To the skillet, add brown rice, broth, diced tomatoes, paprika, turmeric, and thyme. Stir to mix. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove cover and stirring occasionally, continue to simmer for 5 more minutes or until liquid is almost completely absorbed.   
  3. Stir green onions into the paella mixture with a fork. Serve warm topped with optional garnishes.
