Is there anything better than a decent sandwich? requited love maybe, a lie in, the first cup of tea of the day?
The bifana is the greatest love and its easy to achieve….if you live in Portugal. I dont so I decided to make the greatest bifana
this is what Anthony Bourdain said about the bifana. but I can do better….
Another great portuguese pork dish is the porto alentejano…pork with clams. I love both equally and can’t stop myself thinking…why not both?
So I marinaded a loin of pork in white wine, garlic, paprika and clams.
I let it marinade overnight and then sous vide to perfection
then browned the pork on a high plancha
lived some bits of the pork and put on the plancha again
added some of the marinade
roll and honey mustard
hey presto….sous vide alentejana begins
I’m expecting a call from the Portuguese prime minister to offer me the legion of honour
