  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 500g pork mince
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 35g sachet paella seasoning
  • 300g paella rice or short grain rice
  • 300g frozen peas, blanched


  1. Warm the oil in a large frying pan or paella pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Fry for 5 minutes with the pork and chopped onion, stirring often to drive out the water and brown the meat.
  3. Add the rice to the mince and onion and cook for 2 minutes, or until the rice begins to crackle slightly.
  4. Along with the paella mix, pour 700ml of hot water from the kettle.
  5. Stir to mix all the ingredients, cover with a lid, add additional water if necessary, reduce to low heat, and cook for 15 minutes, or until the rice is cooked but still has a bite to it.
  6. Place the peas on top of the cooked paella and heat them up gently with a fork.
  7. Remove the paella from the pan and set aside for 5 minutes before serving. Season generously with salt and pepper.
