  • 1 kg (2 1/4 pounds) pork loin
  • 150 ml (2/3 cup) olive oil
  • 150 ml (2/3 cup) white wine
  • 100 ml (1/2 cup) water
  • 8 cloves of garlic
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 4 pineapple slices
  • 2 tablespoons honey

    Step 1

    1. Season the meat with salt, pepper, unpeeled crushed garlic (place the garlic on a table and use your hand to press the flat side of the knife against the garlic. The garlic will easily crush under your weight) and white wine. Let marinate about one hour.

    Step 5

    1. In another skillet, place the honey (two tablespoons honey), pepper and the Dijon mustard. Stir, bring to a boil over low heat for about two to three minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Step 6

    The ingredient list includes 100ml water, but the directions don’t state what to do with the water. When would I add the water to the recipe?
