Greek Stewed Pork and Greens in Lemon Sauce (Recipe)


✅ 2 pounds pork shoulder cut in large chunks

✅ ½ cup extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 4 chopped onions

✅ 3-4 sliced spring onions (only white part)

✅ 1 leek sliced (only white)

✅ ½ cup chopped dill
✅ 2 pounds chard roughly chopped

✅ Juice from 2 lemons

✅ 2 bay leaves

✅ 3-4 allspice berries

✅ salt and pepper


1️⃣ Heat (medium to high) a heavy pan with 2 teaspoons olive oil. Add the bay leaves, allspice and some pepper and brown the meat on both sides, about 2-3 minutes each side. Do not cook the meat completely. You can do this in batches so as to not crowd the meat.

2️⃣ In a pot, heat the rest of the olive oil and sauté the onion, the spring onion and the leek until soft. Add the dill and sauté 1-2 minutes more.

3️⃣ Once the meat is browned, place in the pot with the onion mixture and more pepper and salt. Add warm water enough to barely cover the meat. Cover the pot and simmer for about 1 hour, until meat is soft and tender.

4️⃣ Open the pot and add chard and the lemon juice. Mix a bit with a large spoon. Continue to simmer for about 20 minutes, until chard has wilted. Mix occasionally so that all greens are wilted

5️⃣ Serve with bread.
