Maiale Arrabiata (Angry Pig)
1 lb of pork pieces, bone in, bone out, various cuts, variety makes it more interesting
1 lemon, thinly sliced into rounds
3-4 cloves of garlic sliced
2 bay leaves
pinch of fennel seeds
2-3 whole chili peppers
1 cup of white wine
1 handful of olives….if you like olives, its a big handful!
Olive oil for cooking
Marinate the raw pork in half of the sliced garlic, the bay leaves, lemon slices and white wine for about an hour at room temperature, 2 hours if refrigerated.
When you are ready to cook the pork, gently brown the remaining garlic and the fennel seeds in a few spoonfuls of olive oil. Add the pork and brown, turn the heat down, and add the wine marinade with the lemon slices. Cook until the pork is done, and most of the juice has evaporated, add a handful of olives and serve.
