Description

In the Philippines, Spain meets China in the kitchen!

Afritada comes from Spanish "a fritada", which means to fry.

But Pork Afritada is not really fried, it is lightly browned and then braised in tomato sauce with potatoes, carrots, bell peppers, sweet peas and sometimes sausages.

An everyday meal, served with plain steamed rice.

This pork stew is not too spicy, and sort of sweet and sour.

Pork Afritada best pairing is Riesling or Cava for white wines and a fruity Garnacha for red.

Italian wines are also a great match to tomato-based sauces.

Food and Wine Pairing

Food and wine pairing is highly dependent on both the taste components in the food and the taste components in the wine.


Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
