(Home-style Paella). for 4 people:. Heat the oil in a paella pan or large skillet, then add the garlic, onion, chicken, pork and fried tomatoes. Saute these over low heat until the chicken and pork are partially cooked, then add the rice, water and salt, stirring them in with a wooden spoon. Before the mixture comes to the boil, add the peas, shellfish and saffron. Cook for 15 minutes, moving the pan around on the burner, if necessary, so that the paella cooks evenly. Remove the pan from the heat. Decorate with the strips of pepper. Cover with a cloth and let it stand for a few minutes before serving.
