This is one of those typical Portuguese dishes that you have to taste. The Portuguese people eat these pork sandwiches like Americans eat burgers… anytime and anywhere. The perfect storm of succulent marinated pork on a Portuguese roll.
If Portugal were to name a national sandwich, the Bifana would be it!
Portuguese Bifana Recipe
Boneless pork, thinly sliced about a ¼ inch thick (8 slices)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 package of Marinade Seasoning Mix
1 cup water
1 cup white wine
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Mix marinade ingredients, add pork, and marinate 12-24 hours.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add 4 cutlets at a time from the marinade. Sauté in heated skillet until just beginning to brown on both sides, turning only once, about 1 ½ minutes per side. Assemble four beautiful Bifana sandwiches. Two cutlets per sandwich. Drizzle the pan dripping over the cutlets.
