This recipe was long in the planning and making; and my good friend Brian told me that he had a geera pork recipe for me for the past few months, but every time we planned to meet and do this recipe something always came up. But that changed a few days ago when we finally organised to do the recipe. He came with his girlfriend Arianne and they whipped up a real nice pot of geera pork. And I was not let down because the recipe was very good…. Just that pepper mouth me, added a little more pepper to mine. 🙂
Brian’s Geera Pork Recipe
In Brian’s recipe the geera is added before and after. It’s a little different from the previous geera pork recipe but I assure you that it tastes just as well. That is what I like about cooking: there are so many ways to achieve the same result. Some people may use different seasonings or a different technique in cooking but achieve the same tasty trini dish or any dish for that matter. So enjoy the geera pork recipe and tell me what you think. Here’s Geera Pork II. Enjoy!
Geera Pork Recipe
2 pounds pork
1 bundle chive
1 bundle chadon beni
1 sprig rosemary
1 sprig fine leaf thyme
7 cloves garlic
½ medium onion
1 hot pepper
½ teaspoon soy sauce
¼ teaspoon oregano
½ tablespoon curry
1½ teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons salt or to taste
2 tablespoons oil
½ tablespoon whole geera (seeds)
4 tablespoons geera powder, divided
Cut up the seasonings (chadon beni, chive, rosemary, pimento, fine leaf thyme, 6 cloves garlic, onion)
Wash the pork and remove some of the fat.
Cut the pork into 1″ pieces. Wash with the lime and drain. Season with half of the chopped seasoning.
Add salt, paprika, curry powder, oregano and soy sauce. Marinate for 1 hour.
Heat the oil over a medium flame and add the whole geera, half of the pepper, and 1 clove of crushed garlic. Fry for 1 minute. Add 3 tbsp of geera powder and fry for another minute.Add the pork. Allow to cook in its own juices for about 3 minutes.
Make sure the pork is evenly coated with the geera.
Cover the pork with a little water. Allow to simmer for about 15 minutes. Add the other half of the pepper.
Add water and the rest of seasoning. Lower the flame and allow to simmer.Allow to cook until the water has evaporated.
Note: This would take some time since you’re slow cooking the pork allowing the seasoning to really infuse into the pork.
Just before the pork is finished add the other tablespoon of geera powder and cook for another 5 minutes.
The finished geera pork. Serve by itself or with Hops bread.
