Cypriot Pork in Tomato Sauce - 4 points

This recipe is adapted from the book Cyprian Cooking by Despina Tskiri which a friend purchased for me while she was living on the island. I have had great success with this book, especially with this recipe. The pork is succulent and rich

Cypriot Pork in Tomato Sauce
3 lean pork chops, sliced into 1/2" strips
2 tsp olive oil
2 cups diced tomatoes
1 cup white wine
1 tbsp lemon pepper
1. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add pork; fry until brown.
2. Pour tomatoes, wine, and lemon pepper over pork. Simmer until the wine is almost completely evaporated.
3. Yields 3, 4 point servings

I recently finished a book which I would recommend to anyone with a child in his/her life: Reading Magic, by Mem Fox. It is an excellent little volume extolling the virtues of reading aloud.


  1. I will try to get that book. Cypriot pork looks awesome Angela.

  2. I love Greek food, but I never seem to find a good Greek cookbook which I feel that is useful. I'll take a look on your suggested cookbook.

  3. Swathi - I hope you can find it:)
    Holly- Thank you.
    Victor- I hope this one works for you. It is very, very simple, and the recipes always turn out well for me.

  4. The sauce sounds delicious with the pork.

  5. Angela, This pork dish looks so delicious. The sauce seems wonderful. I used to love reading aloud to my kids and I know that it made them successful learners.

  6. Wow, so simple but it looks awesome!! I've never cooked anything Cyprian before, but clearly I need to start!

  7. How original and the best part is that I can make it without feeling guilty. I enjoy coming to check out you great recipes.

  8. 4 points? Really? On my list. Meaty (sort of), hearty (definitely) and leaves me some points for a glass of wine. (And I love to read aloud.)

  9. So healthy, so delicious- how could you go wrong?! Yum!

  10. This sounds lovely. I am always interested in seeing dishes from Cyprus

  11. if all the dishes are this good, it must be a great cookbook!

  12. That sounds lovely! I love such flavors.



  13. The sauce on here looks absolutely delightful!
