READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by diner524

Another recipe I found for Spanish recipes on "About.com" that I am posting for ZWT, so untried by me. Here is what is stated: Pork loin smothered in mushrooms, onions carrots with white wine makes a delicious little tapa. If you are looking for a tasty, yet simple main course, this is perfect.

I went with the loin chops option as I only needed 2 servings tonight. I skipped the sugar (just personal preference) and added a mix of black, white and green peppercorns pounded in the mortar. The mushrooms were, for me, the star of the dish but the chops were very good to. I just seasoned them with salt and the same pepper mix and put them on the grill (first grill use this year). Thank you for a lovely dish that is very easy to enjoy and easy on my healthy eating agenda.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse and clean mushrooms under cold running water. Cut into 1/2-inch thick slices. Peel and cut carrot into very thin round slices. Peel the onion and chop coarsely.
  2. In a large, heavy-bottomed frying pan, pour 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil and heat over medium. Add onion and carrot slices and sauté 3-5 minutes. Turn heat up to medium-high. Add mushroom slices, lemon juice, white wine and tomato sauce. Stir while adding crushed thyme and granulated sugar. Continue to stir constantly while mixture cooks for 5-7 minutes. If white wine evaporates, add a bit of water to prevent mixture from burning.
  3. Salt both sides of pork slices. Heat 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil in a separate large frying pan and cook pork. If you prefer, cook chops over an open flame grill.
  4. Serve loin accompanied by the mushroom mixture, and rice or fried potatoes.
