Pan fried pork with leek or “Prasotigania” as it is called in Greek, is an easy to prepare dish that is usually served as a meze, accompanying ouzo or wine
½ kilo pork fillets
2 leeks, white part only
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons coriander seeds
1 glass of dry red wine
1 teaspoon sweet chilli flakes
60g. Mizithra cheese, coarsely grated
Cut the pork fillets into bite-sized pieces. Finely chop leeks into rings. Crush the coriander seeds using a mortar.
In a large skillet, pour a small cup of water and the leek rings. Let them boil until all the water evaporates.
Pour the olive oil and, when the leeks begin to sizzle, add the pieces of meat, the crushed coriander seeds and the chilli flakes, without turning off the heat.
Sauté the ingredients until brown. Add the red wine and the salt. Reduce heat, cover the pan and cook for 10 minutes.
Uncover the pan, turn up the heat and leave until the sauce thickens.
Serve in a large dish or small platter and sprinkle with the grated cheese.
