Ingredients

Marinade:
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons adobo seasoning
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper 
Chuleta:
  • 2 (1-pound) boneless center-cut pork loins, butterflied by the butcher
  • Plain breadcrumbs, as needed
  • Corn oil, as needed
  • Aji, recipe follows
accompaniments:
  • red beans and rice
  •  sweet bananas
Hot Sauce (Aji):
  • 10 jalapenos, stemmed
  • 1/4 cup water
  •  1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
  •  1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  •  1 1/2 cups finely chopped scallions
  •  1 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves
  •  2 teaspoons salt

Directions

accompaniments:

To make the marinade: Combine all of the ingredients in blender and puree until smooth. Transfer to bowl. (The marinade can be made up to 2 days in advance covered and refrigerated.) 

To marinate the chuleta: Transfer the pork to the marinade and marinate at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes. 

Put bread crumbs in a plastic bag. Add pork and using the palm of your hand, pat bread crumbs onto pork so that it adheres well.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of the skillet. Working in batches, add the pork and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and cooked through, about 5 mintues per side. 

Serve with the aji, red beans, rice and sweet bananas (maduros) for an authentic Colombian dish.

Hot Sauce (Aji):

In a blender, pulse jalapenos with water, vinegar, and lemon juice until finely chopped. Pour into a bowl. Add scallions and cilantro. Add about 2 teaspoons salt or more to taste.
