    Brenda.'s Note:

    *Needs to Marinate 24 hours* The marinade is a wonderful flavor enhancer for the pork. Original recipe from David Leite, and adapted to our taste.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 lb fresh jalapeno (4-5 are plenty for us)
    • 1 tablespoon salt
    • 1/4 cup paprika (sweet or hot, I use sweet)
    • 1/2 cup white wine
    • 1/4 cup red wine
    • 10 garlic cloves, chopped
    • 4 lbs boneless pork butt, cut into 8 pieces (I use thick cut boneless pork loin chops and reduce cooking time)
    • 1/4 cup oil (for roasting, about 1/4 cup)
    • salt & pepper, to taste


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F.
    2. 2
      Place the peppers and salt into a food processor and mince.
    3. 3
      Combine the minced peppers with the garlic, paprika, white wine and red wine in a large glass bowl.
    4. 4
      Add the pork pieces to the marinade, making sure the pork is coated well.
    5. 5
      Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
    6. 6
      After 24 hours remove pork, and discard the marinade.
    7. 7
      Pour oil into a large roasting pan, place the pork in the roasting pan and season with salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Roast at 375 degrees for about 1 hour (turn the pork regularly to make sure pork stays moist).
    9. 9
      Depending on the cut and how thick your pork pieces are, cooking time may need to be adjusted. Pork should register at least 160-170 degrees for safety.
    10. 10
      I have not tried this yet, but was thinking of marinating a whole pork shoulder or loin roast and trying it in the crockpot.

      Delicious pork roast! I actually ended up marinating it for about 48 hours as I wasn't able to cook it when I planned. The only change I made to the recipe was to not mince the jalapenos. I just added some jalapeno slices to the marinade so it wouldn't be quite so hot for the children. The roast ended up with just a subtle touch of heat to it. We really enjoyed this recipe! Thanks for sharing it. Made for ZWTIII

      I think that 1/2 lb jalapenos would be way too much. I'm Portuguese and have made this using 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes and that's just the right amount for this dish.

      Do not call the "Torresmos" this recipe because this is not correct :)
