Arrosto di Maiale al Limone

This is now officially my favourite Sicilian dish – even though I made some adjustments to it.  In English, it is Lemon-flavoured Pork.
I am not good at plating food but trust me, this tastes infinitely better than it looks.
  • Pork chops or pork steaks, enough for two people
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 lbs of new potatoes
  • olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of orange marmalade/chop or steak
  • Minced garlic to taste
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Rosemary
  • 2 bay leaves
  • White flour
  • Sea salt
  • 1 cup of water


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Slice the potatoes thinly
  3. Coat pork with flour
  4. Heat the oil with the herbs and garlic in the roasting pan 
  5. Place pork in pan and sear
  6. Put one teaspoon of marmalade on each chop or steak
  7. Add potatoes and salt
  8. Pour lemon juice over the potatoes and pork
  9. Roast for 30 minutes
  10. Add water and roast for another 30 minutes
