How to make it

  • Prepare a marinade with the wine, garlic, paprika, salt, pepper, bay leaf and clove. Stand the meat in this for 4 or 5 hours.
  • Drain the meat and fry gently in the melted lard, until golden brown all over.
  • Strain the marinade and add to the pan. Cover and boil with the meat until it is tender and the sauce reduced by half.
  • Meantime, make anouther sauce with the tomato paste, oil, onion, parsley, salt and pepper, simmering it all for 6 to 8 minutes. Place the clams in this over low heat.
  • The clams should be open after a couple of minutes. Remove those which do not open and discard.
  • Deep fry the potato cubes until they are golden brown. Add the potatoes to the meat pan.
  • Shake the pan and transfer the clams to the top of the meat. Cover. Boil gently for 3 minutes and serve in the same pan.

    We loved this! I quadrupled the sauce because I like to have plenty of it to soak up with crusty Euro bread. We also had a meal using the cubed fried potatoes instead of bread. (Either way is typical in Portugal.) I used hot Hungarian paprika, as my other option was Spanish smoked paprika which would've changed the flavor.

    Served this in typical Portuguese fashion: with bread, simple salad & Vinho Verde ~ delicious. I served Portuguese appetizers of Euro bread & butter, olives & rissois de camarão (shrimp rissoles). Dessert was a European nut torte with cafezinho (demitasses of coffee). This meal had some of my favorite dishes ~ it was thoroughly enjoyed by all, particularly by me & the guest of honor, both of us having lived in lovely Portugal.
