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.

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

I didn't add as many jalapenos to this (as suggested) and it was still too spicy for most of the family. Had a lot of garlic flavor...every time I opened the fridge door, the smell hit me hard. Hubby and I like garlic and spice but there just seemed to be something missing here for us. It just wasn't for us, I think. It was easy to prepare and the pork slices were very pretty.
