Carne de Porco à Alentejana

Carne de Porco à Alentejana (Pork with clams) is one of the most traditional and popular pork dishes of Portuguese cuisine. It is a combination of pork and clams, with potatoes and coriander.[1] Usually, about 800 g of pork are marinated for some time in white wine, paprika, red pepper paste, chopped garlic, coriander, bay leaf, and salt and white pepper. Cumin is often added in northern Portugal as well. [2] It is then fried until golden brown, when clams are added and cooked.[2] Traditionally, this dish is served with cubed potato fries or baked potatoes.

It is typical from the Algarve region in Portugal, though the name is Alentejana (from Alentejo).[citation needed] It was added because Alentejo is well renowned for its pork.[citation needed]
