  1. Heat the oil in a large pan and brown the meat lightly all over.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients with enough water to cover.
  3. Bring to the boil, cover, reduce the heat and simmer gently until the meat is tender - about 3 hours.
  4. Allow the meat to cool completely in the stock - this will take around 3 hours so allow for this when calculating cooking times.
  5. Remove to a serving dish and reserve the stock for another use.
  6. Serve the pork sliced and cover with Salsa de ají colorado.

Chef's notes

If you are wanting to reduce the number of servings, you will have to pay particular attention to the pork cooking time, as smaller pieces will cook more quickly.

Making this recipe for 2 people, a whole pork loin is was impractical so I've adjusted the recipe (below) to use 1 large pork tenderloin, about 560 g. I have used fresh herbs where possible and have roughly chopped the vegetables as they won't be eaten afterwards. I used about the identical quantities, topping up with water to cover. This version was cooked for 1 hour and took 3 more hours to cool. --Chef 15:13, 10 October 2010 (BST)
