Looks complicated, but its not: This classic Spanish rice dish boasts shrimp, pork sausage and fresh pork. Kissed with saffron, and enlivened with pimiento and green peas, this one-dish meal makes enough for a crowd.
In a large skillet or 4-quart Dutch oven brown sausage over medium heat. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in skillet; set sausage aside. Add pork to skillet with green onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until pork is browned, about 8-10 minutes.
Return sausage to pan with chicken broth, rice, salt, oregano, saffron and bay leaf. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer 25 minutes. Add shrimp, peas, pimiento and parsley. Simmer, covered, for 10-15 minutes or until shrimp are done. Remove bay leaf.
