Yummy Chilli Pork

Shared by: Lila
Recipe origin: Macedonia

My mother-in-law makes a killer chilli pork and it’s safe to say that it’s one of my husbands favourite meals.

It’s a really quick dish and great for rushed mid-week dinners with brown rice, especially if you have your butcher prepare the pork for you. It’s probably also the closest Macedonian cuisine will ever get to a stir fry.

The secret ingredient is Bukovsko, essentially dried chilli flakes. I’m lucky enough to have homemade chilli flakes that my baba prepared with this summers chillies. She removes the stem, cuts each chilli in half and dries in warm sunny spots over several days, the chillies are then lightly roasted in the oven for extra flavour, then ground and stored.

Most often eaten with bread and potatoes, this pork makes a divine warm salad (see recipe tip).


Serves 4

400g pork fillet, removed of sinew and fat, roughly chopped into bite size pieces
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 medium onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
1/4-1/2 teaspoon dried chilli flakes (or Bukovsko Biber)
Sea salt

1) In a medium frying pan heat olive oil (high heat), add pork and stir frequently until brown all over (5-7 minutes).

2) Add garlic and stir through, add onion and fry until lightly browned (3-5 minutes).

3) Add chilli flakes and salt to taste, stir through and cook until chilli is fragrant and the onion begins to caramelise (2-3 minutes).

4) Remove from heat and serve with crusty bread or brown rice.

Tip: For a delicious warm pork salad, allow the cooked pork to slightly cool and add to a salad of mixed greens, sundried tomatoes and olives with a balsamic dressing.
