  1. 1
    For Pork Sirloins: Season with salt and pepper and brown. Sprinkle with Málaga wine and wrap in the blanched leek leaves. Lightly grease the leeks. Roast the sirloins in the oven at 200ºC / 392ºF for about 6 minutes and set aside.

When soft, leave to drain for a few minutes. Dice the bacon and fry. When brown, add the nuts and raisins, the peeled and diced chestnuts, the chopped garlic and chopped dried pepper. Brown, add the bread and stir constantly until browned. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Serve hot.

Chef's Remark:  I use this recipe during the hunting season or with Ibérico pork sirloin because the meat needs to have personality to go well with the sweet, fruity flavors.  The sweet chestnut croutons and nuts, wonderful on their own, make a perfect partner for the rich meat.
