Stuffed Potatoes with Smoked Paprika Pork

Method

Put the potatoes in a large pot of cold water. Bring to boil and then drain and cool, enough to handle.

To prepare the sauce, blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth and fragrant.

In a pan heat oil and sauté the onions and capsicum for 5 minutes. Add the mince and cook for another 5-10 minutes or until browned. Add the tomatoes, olives and the blended sauce and season again with salt and pepper. Once brought to the boil, immediately turn down and simmer for 15 minutes. Once cooked add the coriander.

Pre heat the oven 190C.

Cut each potato in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out 2/3 of the pulp from the potato and some from the lids so the potatoes will close once the filling is in them. Fill the cavity with the pork mixture and sprinkle with a little cheese. Replace the potato lid and bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden brown. Serve with a salad.
