Braised Pork with Peppers (Τηγανιά)


For my friend Suzie


500 g pork with fat

2 large green peppers, chopped into large chunks

2 large red peppers chopped into large chunks

1 glass of fresh orange juice

1 glass of wine

2 garlic cloves halved

Salt and ground black pepper

Olive oil and a soup spoon of cooking butter


Heat the oil and cooking butter in a deep frying pan, add the garlic pieces and fry for just a minute, remove the garlic pieces so they don`t burn and save to one side, add the pork and fry till browned on all sides.  Add the S & P, then the wine and the orange juice, allow to boil for 6 or 7 minutes, add the peppers and the garlic.  Stir gently.   The sauce will thicken as it reduces, when the peppers are lightly cooked, pour off the sauce and save, allow to braise further for a couple of minutes, shaking the pan not stirring.

Add the sauce to serve.

  1. Thank you for this. Ordered ingredients already. For sure it will be as successful as you other savoury dishes that delight the palette, pickled, preserved, sometimes cooked quickly, maybe fried, BBQ’d or slowly cooked, infusing many flavours. Of course too, your sweet indulgences..still making and hiding chocolate orange slices in depths of the freezer.
    Philip thanks you too.

    1. Ha ha, I have no chocolate slices in stock, I decided they`re too much of a temptation, even when in the depths of the freezer.
