Pork Ragu With Moroccan Flavors

Submitted by: REOSHANA

Introduction

Got this from Eatingwell.com, and it sounded so good. I made it without the paprika because I didn't have any and it still tasted really good. Little bit of effort, but worth it if you like flavorful food. Got this from Eatingwell.com, and it sounded so good.

Ingredients

    2 Lemons
    2 1/2 tsp Olive Oil, divided
    1 tsp Coriander
    2 tsp Paprika
    1/2tsp cumin (I used more than that)
    1/4 tsp ginger + a pinch divided
    1 1/2 lbs boneless pork chops, cubed, trim all fat
    1 14 oz can of chicken broth
    1 Cup butternut squash, 1/2 inch dice
    1 cup carrots, sliced
    1 cup canned chickpeas (garbanzos)
    1/2 cup onion, chopped (I used more)
    1/2 cup canned diced tomatoes (I used fresh)
    2 cloves garlic (I used 3)
    dash of hot sauce
    pinch of cinnamon

Directions

1. Zest and juice the lemon to get 1 Tbsp of zest and 2 tbsp of juice. Reserve the zest.
2. Combine the juice, 1/2 tsp of olive oil, paprika, coriander, cumin, salt (if you're using it) pepper, 1/4 tsp of ginger in a medium bowl. Add pork and stir to coat. Marinate 15 Minutes to 4 hours.
3. Heat the remaining 2 tsp of oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the pork and cook for 2-3 minutes until the outsides are no longer pink, and are beginning to brown. Transfer meat to plate.
4. Add broth, squash, carrots, chickpeas, onion, tomato, garlic, hotsauce, cinnamon, reserved zest, and pinch of ginger to the pan. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally.
5. Reduce heat and simmer. Cook until the veg is tender, 20-30 minutes. Stir in pork and cook 4-5 minutes more.

  • I would actually rate this a 5, but I added a lot more cumin and other spices. I also used red pepper flakes instead of the hot sauce. It was very tasty with the additional spices and I'd definitely make it again. - 8/25/11
