Corfu Recipes - Bekri Meze
This page gives you the opportunity to re-create some of your favourite Corfiot recipes at home. This time, Bekri Meze ("Drunkards" meze). This appetiser may get its name from the wine in the recipe or because it is best enjoyed with a few drinks!
Ingredients - 2 tbs olive oil. 1kg shoulder of pork cut into 2.5cm cubes. 1 onion, chopped. 2 peppers any colour, sliced. 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped. 1/2 cup red wine. 1/2 cup of water. 1/2 tsp salt. 1/2 tsp black pepper. 1/2 tsp ground cumin. 1 tsp of oregano.
Instructions - In a sauté pan on a medium heat add the olive oil and sauté the onion for about 5 minutes. Add the pork and cook for 20 minutes. Stir it occasionally until it begins to brown. Add the wine. Simmer for another 20 minutes. Add half a cup cup of water and simmer for 10 more minutes. Add the salt, peppers and chilli, and cook for 10 more minutes. If you feel it is getting too dry add a little water. Add the black pepper, cumin and oregano. Stir in to the pork mixture and cook for a final 3-4 minutes.
