Creamy Paprika Pork a Lean & Green Recipe
Thick, rich hearty sauce dishes CAN be part of a healthy, low carb diet if they're done right. Here I make healthy substitutions that allow the flavor of the pork to come through while providing a fabulous paprika sauce that coats the meat and your tongue in deliciousness.
Serve with cauliflower rice, over egg noodles or traditional rice. Whichever your program allows!
This can actually be made with either chicken OR pork, whichever you prefer and the result is super yummy whichever meat you choose.
18 ounces boneless skinless pork loin or chicken breast
4 teaspoons good quality ground paprika
1 Tablespoon Stacey Hawkins Dash of Desperation Seasoning (or salt, pepper, garlic and onion)
1/2 - 1 Tablespoon Stacey Hawkins Roasted Garlic Oil
12 ounces Greek Yogurt, plain, unflavored
1/2 - 1 Tablespoon Stacey Hawkins Garlic and Spring Onion
4 Cups plain, steamed cauliflower rice (optional)
Cut meat into 1" chunks and place in a large bowl.
Sprinkle meat with paprika and Dash of Desperation seasonings. Toss to coat completely.
Add Roasted Garlic Oil to a large skillet and heat over medium high heat.
Add meat to pan and cook for 7-10 minutes, until brown and cooked. Stir occasionally.
Reduce to heat medium. Add yogurt and Garlic and Spring Onion to the pan. Bring to a low simmer.
Let meat simmer for 3-5 minutes, until liquid reduces slightly to make a thicker sauce and chicken is fully cooked. Stir occasionally.
Divide into 4 equal servings and portion over 1 C cauliflower rice.

Varieties of yogurt and fat content can change the recipe and make it curdle.
What I do recommend is allowing the yogurt to come to room temperature before adding as it helps to keep the yogurt from being shocked. You can also add small amounts at a time to temper the yogurt.
