The Portuguese wine and garlic pork is marinated in a mixture of red wine vinegar and red wine, with seasonings such as bay leaves, cloves, salt and thyme. Add the pork and marinade to a bag and remove any excess air, then refrigerate the marinating pork for about two to four days, turning the bag occasionally. Once the pork is finished marinating, preheat the oven at 350 F, and bake for about 20 minutes, using the marinade during the baking process. Finally, add the pork to a pan with vegetable oil to brown the meat. This recipe gets five stars from six reviews, as of 2015.

Portuguese pork tenderloin first requires a prepped bowl of flour, pepper and paprika. Roll the tenderloin in the flour mixture, then saute the pork until the flour is golden brown. Add some sliced mushrooms and onions and saute those as well for only a couple minutes. Lastly, add some wine and rosemary and cook for about 45 to 60 minutes, covered. Once cooked, add some lemon juice and parsley to finish the dish. This recipe received 24 five-star reviews as of 2015.
