Pork with lime and hot peppers

This recipe was originally based on one I found in a paperback cookbook. Over the years I have adapted it into what you see here. It is fairly hot, but always gets rave reviews from everyone, even from people who normally don't like hot food.


(Serves 6-8)


  1. Fry pork, onion, red peppers, and garlic over high heat in a heavy frying pan, stirring frequently for about 20 minutes or until well browned.
  2. Add lime juice, soy sauce, and brown sugar.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Put in a covered dish and keep warm in the oven while you make the rice to serve it over. This makes it easy to make the rice, and the pork actually browns a little more during this time.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 15 minutes preparation, 40 minutes cooking.
Precision: no need to measure.
