Torresmos (Portuguese Marinated Pork)

Torresmos (Portuguese Marinated Pork)

These marinated pork cubes are amazing! This recipe is a traditional meal served on all the Azores islands. This marinade is also used to marinate the pork for Carne de Porco à Alentejana and is one of the most traditional and popular pork/seafood dishes of Portuguese cuisine.

You can use a less fatty cut of meat like boneless pork butt (Trejums) cut into chunks.


or the more traditional pork, pork belly sliced into chunks. This marinade is also a wonderful flavor enhancer for the pork belly.
