After the success of my garlicky lemon-parsley chicken, I thought it might be great idea to do the same with pork. So right. Such a tasty no-rush recipe for succulent pork. You’ll love the tangy taste of lemon on melt-in-your-mouth pork rind.
Garlicky Lemon-Parsley Pork
Recipe type: Main
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
- A slab of pork with fat
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 whole garlic, separated but unpeeled
- 1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
- In a bowl, mix thyme, salt, and pepper. Rub the mixture into pork. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
- Heat olive oil in a skillet. Fry garlic until aromatic.
- Over high heat, add pork and brown on both sides for about 5 minutes.
- Add about 2 cups of water and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to boil then turn heat to low and simmer until pork is tender.
- Turn off the heat, add parsley, cover with lid and let stand for another 2 minutes. Transfer to a platter, slice the slab of pork and serve garnished with more chopped parsley.
Preparation time includes marinating time.
