Carne de Porco à Portuguesa ❦ Portuguese Style Pork

I am super excited to share with you a true classic of the Portuguese kitchen! Predominently southern, tender pork is marinated in garlic, sweet paprika, bay leaves and garlic, pan fried and served with cubed fried potatoes and pickeled giardiniera and olives. It is delicious and I feel it really embodies Portugal's culinary style.

We Portuguese, love pork... pork is KING! From chouriço to pork chops....we do it best!

This is the dish I chose to demonstrate at, Crawley's Cultural Kitchen Live, for it's ease of preparation and taste.

I hope you enjoy this fabulous classic.
