This recipe is very common in Chile, most of the time it is made with chicken, but I much prefer it with pork. So when the National Pork Board invited me to make a recipe for the fall season and all different weather in the porknóstico campaign it was the first recipe to come to my mind.
The pork cooks quickly and I can have dinner ready in minutes. This dish may also be prepared with pork chops which are even faster to cook. Always cook the pork to a temperature between 145-160F (62-71C), it is ideal to use a digital thermometer to check and always leave the meat rest for 3 minutes before serving, so it’s juicy and tender. Do not overcook it.
During the fall and winter test adding pork cuts to traditional soups and stews, and you’ll see how you manage a flavor front in your kitchen. Check the porknóstico to plan your meals ahead.
In short, a super quick and easy to prepare recipe. Visit Pork te inspira to find more recipes and learn different cuts of pork, its uses, and qualities.
