Arrange vegetables on the plate and top with the sliced pork. Pour over a couple of spoonfuls of the pickle sauce.


Chef's Remark:

"The idea of preparing pork in a pickle sauce is common in Extremaduran traditional cooking. A very versatile dish, it can be served cold with salads and a mustard vinaigrette; with the pickling vegetables, either hot or cold; as in the recipe; on crisp slices of toast, etc."
