Pork with Chestnuts Recipe

This pork and chestnut recipe comes together very quickly, so you can get dinner on the table in no time. A marinade of red wine, garlic, salt, pepper, and bay leaves flavors the meat and ensures that it stays tender while cooking. The sweetness of the chestnuts works in perfect contrast of the bold and savory meat. Serve this over a bowl of grains (try quinoa or brown rice) or with a pile of roasted vegetables for a filling dinner.

Ingredients

  • 400 grams pork loin
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1.5 deciliters white wine
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt (to taste)
  • ground black pepper (to taste)
  • olive oil
  • 250 grams chestnuts (frozen)

Directions

  1. Cut the meat into cubes, and place them in a bowl. Season with ground pepper, chopped garlic, wine, bay leaf, salt, and pepper. Let marinate for at least 1/2 hour before cooking.
  2. Heat a skillet with a little of olive oil. Fry the meat (without the liquid from the marinade), for 5 to 10 minutes until golden.
  3. Add the liquid marinade, and steam for 15 minutes.
  4. If you start running out of liquid in the pan, add a little water.
  5. Add the chestnuts, and cook over low heat, without stirring too much so as not to crush the nuts.
  6. Serve with a green salad, or sauteed vegetables.
