Torresmos-Portuguese Garlic Roasted Pork

Torresmos-Portuguese Garlic Roasted Pork created by Dreamgoddess

*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.

Ready In:
25hrs
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 12 lb fresh jalapeno (4-5 are plenty for us)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 14 cup paprika (sweet or hot, I use sweet)
  • 12 cup white wine
  • 14 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)
  • 14 cup oil (for roasting, about 1/4 cup)
  • salt & pepper, to taste

directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Place the peppers and salt into a food processor and mince.
  • Combine the minced peppers with the garlic, paprika, white wine and red wine in a large glass bowl.
  • Add the pork pieces to the marinade, making sure the pork is coated well.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  • After 24 hours remove pork, and discard the marinade.
  • Pour oil into a large roasting pan, place the pork in the roasting pan and season with salt and pepper.
  • Roast at 375 degrees for about 1 hour (turn the pork regularly to make sure pork stays moist).
  • 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.
  • I have not tried this yet, but was thinking of marinating a whole pork shoulder or loin roast and trying it in the crockpot.

    Hi,<br/>Do not call the "Torresmos" this recipe because this is not correct :) <br/><br/>http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torresmo<br/>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pork_rind

    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.

    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. Thanks for sharing. Made for my Babes for ZWT4.

    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
