Pork and Peppers with Wine Tomato Sauce

It’s been a busy week and I tried to keep everything simple for meals. I can’t say the same for the my late night baking marathons last week (I’ll post about them soon), but hey, something’s gotta give when you try to fit everything in 24 hours each day.

I just realized that I rarely post pork recipes here and it’s because I rarely buy it, so I’ll post one that I just cooked. It’s nothing complicated, but it’s not so humble in flavors either. The sauce is semi-sweet and spicy, thanks to the cayenne pepper. Yummy over all and always good on steamed rice.

Pork and Peppers in Wine Tomato Sauce

It’s definitely one of my better experiments that made it to our site. Please enjoy!

Pork and Peppers with Wine Tomato SaucePork and Peppers in Wine Tomato Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 1 kilo pork shank, cut in 1 1/2″ cubes
  • 1 orange pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 4 roma tomatoes, seeds removed and chopped
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • salt
  • pepper
  • vegetable oil

Preparation

1. Coat the bottom of a large frying pan with oil and place in medium-high heat. Put the pork and sprinkle with salt and pepper, brown in 2 batches and transfer on a plate.

2. Lower the heat to medium and saute the orange and yellow peppers in the same pan for a few minutes until they start to pick up the brown bits. Don’t overcook the peppers. Put in a small plate for later use.

3. Pour white wine on the pan and let it simmer until it is reduced to half, and scrape off the brown bits while simmering. Add the chopped tomatoes and wait for them to soften. When the skin begins to peel off, press the tomato pieces against the pan to create a paste. Add 1/8 tsp salt and a dash of cayenne pepper.

4. Mix in the pork meat. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes and turn off the heat. Add the peppers and serve with steamed rice.

Variation: You can definitely replace pork with chicken tenders if you like.

      Simple it is. :) Sometimes I labor in the kitchen for a party and yet the simplest dish is often the most complemented one. haha.

    I like the sweetness that the bell peppers bring.

    Wonder if using a chipotle pepper instead of just cayenne would make the dish more complex.

      Indeed. The bell peppers really shine in this dish. I honestly wouldn’t know as I haven’t cooked with chipotle pepper. I’m not too much into spicy because my tastebuds can’t take it. :D

  3. Looks delicious. I’m having pork tonight. Maybe i’ll give it a try.
