I had this fantastic dish at a local Portuguese restaurant then set out on a search to find something close. This recipe comes quite close and was a big hit the three times I served it. I used Vinho Verde for the wine to stay authentic used 2 teaspoon paprika instead of 1 added a teaspoon coriander to the marinade to give it a little more depth and cut the salt back to 2 teaspoons. Clams (littlenecks) will tend to open at different times so remove them from the pan as they open to assure they stay tender. Add them back to the pan for the last minute after adding back the pork.
I loved this recipe! (My husband was also a big fan.) I used boneless pork chops instead of the pork loin and served the whole meal over roasted potatoes...which is how we get it at a local restaurant. Fabulous!
This was FABULOUS! I either put a little extra salt or maybe it was because I used white cooking wine and that may contain salt...I made roasted potatoes and mixed those in at the end so the potatoes countered the salt....but other than that it was DELICIOUS! I marinaded for 2 days straight the pork was TENDER!
This is a great recipe. My family is Portuguese and everyone loved eating this last night. I did chop up some potatoes seasoned it a little and roasted it. After the potatoes were roasted I mixed it in with the pork and clams. Delicious:)
This was a nice change of pace from making my usual pork roast. I didn't used fresh tomatoes just one can of diced. I used frozen clam meat and a small amount of clam juice. That worked out just fine. The pork was very moist and tender from the marinade. I will make this again. Thanks for the post John!
very tasty but definately didnt need all of that salt. i added some chopped up tomatoes and onions to the marinade that was being reduced as well as a few tablespoons of milk to make it a little creamier it was delish!
