Each bite offers a symphony of savory flavors, perfectly complemented by the tangy marinade that infuses every morsel with depth and character. Whether enjoyed as a standalone dish or paired with crusty bread and a glass of wine, Galicia Zorza promises a dining experience that celebrates the vibrant gastronomic heritage of Spain's Galician region.


  • 1 lb pork loin or tenderloin, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


1- In a large mixing bowl, combine the minced garlic, sweet paprika, smoked paprika, ground cumin, dried oregano, salt, black pepper, olive oil, white wine vinegar, and lemon juice. Mix well to create the marinade.

2- Add the thinly sliced pork loin or tenderloin to the marinade, ensuring that each piece is well coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or transfer everything to a sealable plastic bag. Marinate the pork in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to develop.

3- Once the pork has marinated, heat a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, cook the marinated pork slices for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked through. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan, as this can prevent proper browning.

4- Once cooked, transfer the Galicia Zorza to a serving platter. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired, and serve hot. Enjoy your delicious Galician-inspired marinated pork with crusty bread, potatoes, or your favorite side dishes.

5- Optionally, you can also serve the Galicia Zorza with a squeeze of lemon juice over the top for an extra burst of freshness.

6- Buen provecho! (Enjoy your meal!)
