A classic argentinian recipe that results in wonderful tender pork. Marinating time is
- 2 lbs boneless pork loin
- 40 fluid ounces milk
- 2 fluid ounces fresh lemon juice
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 3 tablespoons butter
- white pepper
- Mix together the milk and lemon juice then place the pork in a deep casserole pour over the milk mixture. Cover with a lid and leave overnight in a cool place.
- Preheat the oven to 180C, 350F, Gas Mark 4. Lift the pork out of the milk mixture (reserving the milk), pat it dry with paper towels and seas with salt and pepper.
- Heat the butter in a large frying pan, add the pork and sauté until lightly browned all over. Transfer the pork back into the casserole containing the reserved milk mixture.
- Add the onion and garlic to the frying pan and sauté until softened.
- Add the contents of the frying pan to the pork dish, scraping up any pan drippings and bake, uncovered, for 2 hours or until the pork is tender.
- Transfer the pork to a serving platter and keep warm.
- Skim any fat from the sauce and transfer to a saucepan. Bring to the boil then continue to boil until it has reduced to 360ml/12fl.oz. stirring from time to time.
- Adjust the seasoning and serve separately with the pork.
I absolutely loved the pork! So did DH. The only reason why I only gave it 4 stars is because when I took the pork out of the oven the milk was all curdles and there was no liquid left in the dish. I tried to salvage it because it smelled so good. But it was not meant to be. If you have an idea as to why it all curdles and evaporated I would like some helpful hints. I want to make it again and use the sauce! Otherwise it was so delicious.
