work: 30′ time: 1h:30′ medium: 3/5

Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 1 kg/ 2.2 lbs lean pork, cut in pieces
  • 4 fresh tomatoes, diced
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 70 ml/ 2.4 floz red wine
  • 50 ml/ 1.7 floz olive oil
  • 3 large potatoes
  • oil for frying
  • salt & pepper
Add the olive oil in the pressure cooker. Heat over medium heat.
Add the onion and garlic.
Sauté until light golden.
Wash thoroughly and drain the pieces of pork.
Put in a saucepan, sauté the onion and brown slightly.
When the meat has been sautéed well, add the wine.
Allow the alcohol to evaporate and add the tomatoes, bay leaves, a glass of water and salt.
Cover the pressure cooker and cook the food for 20 minutes over very low heat.
In the meantime clean, wash and chop the potatoes into chunks.
Put oil in the frying pan and fry until golden but not cooked completely.
Open the pressure cooker, test with a fork, if the meat is cooked well, and has softened.
Add the half-fried potatoes, and pepper, and cook for 10 more minutes until the potatoes have absorbed the food sauce.
Serve hot.
As an alternative, if there are no fresh tomatoes, use 500 gr/ 1.1 lbs canned crushed tomatoes.
If you choose to cook in a traditional pot, the cooking time is more.
