This is a simple recipe I learned to make for my husband. You can add a bay leaf to the marinating process but I usually forget to add it and it still tastes yummy!

How to Make Portuguese Pork Loin Sandwich (Bifes de porco)

Step-by-Step

  1. In a pyrex casserole, sprinkle half of the chopped garlic, pepper flakes, salt and a dash of vinegar.
  2. Layer with the fillets and alternate the ingredients between layers. Cover and place in the fridge over night or in an hour if to be made on same day.
  3. Heat up the oil in a heavy pan at medium heat. Lower if the first fillet starts splashing too much.
  4. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.
  5. Place as many fillets in the pan and let cook about 4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
  6. When the first batch of fillets are cooked place in a casserole and put in the warm oven.
  7. Once all fillets are fried, place the sliced onion in the pan with the same oil used for the fillets on medium heat.
  8. Once onions are browned, add the tomato paste and stir until the oil has a red tinge. Pour about 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar and let it burn off for about 2 minutes. Take off heat.
  9. Remove the fillets from the oven and pour the onion mixture over the fillets. You may put in the oven on BROIL for 2 minutes to caramelize the onion.
  10. Serve the fillets in a toasted and crusty bun.
