Pork Estofado - A Bountiful Love

Pork Estofado


1.5 to 2 lbs cubed pork
 2 tbsp olive oil
2 ( 4oz) tomato sauce
1 ( 14 oz) can diced tomatoes, do not drain
1/4 cup Homemade Breadcrumbs or store-bought is fine
2 cloves garlic, minced.
1 cup, diced onion
2 cubed ( medium size) carrots
5 cubed, red potatoes
2 tbsp pimientos
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste


In a separate bowl, make the marinade: Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and pepper ( to your desired amount)

Marinate the pork for half an hour.

In a large saucepan, heat olive oil. Fry the carrots and potatoes, until they are golden brown or the veggies are tender. Set aside.

Using the same large saucepan, heat olive oil and saute the onions, until transparent followed by the garlic. 

Add the marinated pork WITH the marinade. Cook for about 40 minutes, until pork is tender. You may add a few tbsp of water when it becomes dry..don't let it burn.

Add the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes.

add the carrots, potatoes, and pimientos.

Mix in the breadcrumbs.

Stir until the breadcrumbs incorporate with the sauce. If you want a thicker sauce, add more breadcrumbs or you can add 1 tbsp of cornstarch mixed with 2 tbsp of water. I only used about 3 tbsp of the crumbs. Add salt and pepper to taste. In our culture and if you are up for it, you can use fish sauce to season this dish. You can also use soy sauce or coconut aminos for a healthier substitute.

    Serve with warm rice.
