Pork Afelia


pork loin steak

This tasty dish is Pork Loin marinated with coriander, known as Pork Afelia in Greece where it originates. This recipe is taken from my cookery bible: Delia Smith’s Complete Cookery Course, a wonderful book which I have had for years. This is really simple to prepare and cook, an excellent mid week meal. I have adapted it slightly, using pork loin steaks whole instead of cubes.

Ingredients: (Serves 4)

4 Pork Loin Steaks
2 teaspoons of crushed coriander seeds
6 tbsps white wine
4 tbsps olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1 garlic clove chopped small
salt and pepper


  1. Place the Pork Steaks in a shallow dish and sprinkle over the coriander seeds. Now mix together 2 tbsps white wine, 3 tbsps olive oil, lemon juice and garlic and pour over the meat. Turn the steaks a few times to make sure they are well covered with the marinade and cover with cling film.
  2. Leave the steaks to marinade overnight if you can or for as long as possible.
  3. To cook the pork, melt the remaining tablespoon of oil in the frying pan and, when it’s fairly hot add the pork steaks and cook them over a medium heat, turning them and keeping them on the move. When they have browned a little, pour in the rest of the white wine, let it bubble and reduce to a syrupy consistency.

The pork will take approximately 10-15 minutes to cook altogether.

Serve with Potato Wedges and green vegetables or  rice and a salad.
