This recipe is submitted for play in ZWT8 – Spain/Portugal. It is a recipe by Ana Patuleia Ortins This is similar to the another recipe except that it uses pork butt and is cooked in the oven. Note: This can also be braised on the stove top in the marinade until fork tender. Note: Prep time is the meat marinating in the fridge overnight.

This made a very tasty, flavorful pork entree. I did not put in any peppers because I didn't have or know what hot red finger peppers are. Or should I have used a bell pepper? I didn't know, so skipped. What I should have read more carefully is size of cubes - mine were smaller than stated, probably 3/4 inch cubes or so. After 35 min. in the oven, they were done and a bit dried out. Flavor was great, despite my drying them out!
