Spicy Peruvian Pork

Spicy Peruvian Pork

Kimber 15

"This different pork flavor is delicious served over rice and has always been met with praise. The spices in the marinade can stain, so I use a metal bowl to do the marinating in (also wear an apron!). DO TRY!"

  1. Place pork into a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, cumin, turmeric, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour over the pork, and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove pork from the marinade, reserving the marinade, and place in the hot skillet. Cook until nicely browned on the outside. Add orange juice, 1/2 cup water, dried onion, and the reserved marinade. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the pork is fork tender.
  3. In a small cup, stir together the flour and 2 tablespoons of water. Stir into the skillet, and simmer uncovered until thickened, 2 to 4 minutes.

This was so delicious! A friend of mine from South America raved about it as well. I did make a few changes. After browning the pork on the stove top, I put it in the slow cooker. I deglazed the...

My family thought this was wonderful for a change. I took advantage of another reviewer and added potatoes and carrots. I also added cayenne to spice it up. I would have thought that this is wha...

I've made this twice now, and second time's the charm. First, save yourself work: rather than cubing the meat, cut it into larger pieces and marinade all day. The larger pieces makes browning...

I tried it. It was ok. This was a little too sweet for my taste, I might try it next time with 1/2 the OJ and add 1/2 cup lemon juice.

I really enjoyed this recipe. Unlike prior reviews, I did not find it difficult to make at all! (ref: not worth the time). I too added a dash of hot sauce. When you first brown the pork it wi...

Made this recipe with bone-in pork shoulder (rather than cubed) and it worked well. I marinated the meat in a plastic-zipper bag. Before adding the o.j. and water to the skillet, however, I fi...

This recipe is outstanding! Lovely flavour and texture. I added a few florets of cauliflower and a little more water to the meat on the second day, simmered it gently for about 20 minutes or s...

Over rice, this is an inexpensive and filling meal. The flavors reminded me of an Indian dish served in an authentic restaurant. I prepared the marinade and pork the night before, so it was a sn...
