Carne de Porco à Alentejana

Carne de Porco à Alentejana 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 grams of pork is marinated for some time in white wine, paprika, chopped garlic, coriander, bay leaf, and salt and pepper.[2] It is then fried until golden brown at which point clams are added and cooked.[2] Traditionally this dish is served with cubed French fries or baked potatoes.

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