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)
- 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.
- Leave the steaks to marinade overnight if you can or for as long as possible.
- 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.
