Pork Secreto

Recipe Notes

  • Yield: Serves 2

Ingredients

  • One 1-pound pork secreto, chilled
  • Coarse salt (kosher or sea)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Spanish smoked paprika (pimentón)
  • Extra virgin olive oil, preferably Spanish
  • Lemon quarters, for serving
  • Romesco Sauce (optional)
  • Grilled calçots or baby leeks (optional)

Recipe Steps

Step 1: Generously season the secreto with salt and ground pepper and dust with paprika.

Step 2: Lay the secreto directly on the grill grate. Sear for about 2 minutes per side. Do not overcook. Transfer the meat to a cutting board and let rest for 1 to 2 minutes. Slice thinly on a diagonal against the grain. Transfer the meat and its juices to a platter or plates, then drizzle lightly with olive oil. Squeeze fresh lemon juice on top.

Step 3: Serve, if desired, with Romesco sauce and grilled calçots.
