Carne Vinho e Alhos

When exploring the rich culinary traditions of Madeira Island, one dish you must try is “Carne Vinho e Alhos”, which translates to “meat with wine and garlic”. It’s a perfect representation of Madeiran cuisine, combining simple ingredients to create a symphony of flavors. Carne Vinho e Alhos is marinated pork. The meat is typically cut into cubes or thin strips and marinated overnight in a mixture of red wine, garlic, bay leaves, and other aromatic herbs and spices. This marinade infuses the pork with incredible depth and tenderness, resulting in a melt-in-your-mouth experience. The dish is then cooked by sautéing the marinated pork in a pan until it reaches a rich golden brown color. The sizzling sound and aroma that fill the kitchen as the meat cooks are simply irresistible. The final result is succulent and flavorful pieces of pork that are juicy on the inside and beautifully caramelized on the outside.
