- Remove the pork to a plate with a slotted spoon. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan juices. Sauté the onions, bell pepper, and garlic over medium heat until the onions are golden brown
- Add the rice and sauté it, stirring, for about 4 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, add the pork, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and all the liquid has been absorbed, about 25 minutes.
- Stir in the green olives. Add salt and black pepper to taste.
- Transfer to serving bowl or plate and garnish with the parsley.
