#eattheworld ~ Portuguese Vina Dosh (Wine and Garlic Pork)
This month our Eat the World group is visiting Portugal. This is a terrific group that virtually travels around the world together, enjoying traditional foods from various countries; it is hosted by Evelyne of CulturEatz.
I did a quick search on foods from Portugal and there were just SO many options... a lot of the ingredients were a little out of my comfort (spice) zone or more unfamiliar to my household (salt cod, sardines). Then I saw Vina Dosh on AllRecipes and I was intrigued. Soaked for 3 days in a marinade heavy on red wine vinegar, the meat comes out incredibly flavorful and so tender! It was really delicious and unlike anything I've had before.
I served this up alongside some simple steamed green beans, but we were talking about how something like an herbed rice would be delicious with this as well - it would need to be mild in flavor as the pork has SO much. I would absolutely make this one again.

Portuguese Vina Dosh (Wine and Garlic Pork) from Cali-Chef on AllRecipes
1 1/2 cups red wine vinegar
3/4 cup red wine
7 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
3 bay leaves (optional)
8 whole cloves, or to taste
1 tablespoons ground black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 (3 pound) boneless pork shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Combine red wine vinegar through thyme in a large tupperware and add the cubed pork. Put the lid on the tupperware and shake to coat the meat. Place in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, occasionally shaking the tupperware to coat the meat.
- When you are ready to cook the meat, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Place about 1/2 cup of the marinade along with the meat in a 9x13 baking dish, discard the remaining marinade. Bake for 20-30 minutes.
- Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet and brown the baked meat in batches prior to serving.
