  1. Heat the oil in a sauce pan and fry the pork for 3-4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the onion and garlic and fry for 3-4 minutes, or until tender. Add the chilli powder and paprika and fry for 1 minute.
  2. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, butter beans, tomato puree and 500ml water and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the stew develops a thicker consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
  3. Serve the pork and bean stew with the granary bread, warmed if you like.
