Home > Meat > Raxo



Raxo is a typical way of preparing pork loin in Galicia (a region in northwest Spain), it’s a very simple recipe to prepare, requires little time and the result is awesome.


Start cutting the pork loin in regular pieces, like about the size of  a tablespoon. Chop a bunch of parsley.

Add pork loin in a bowl and add also a bit of salt, chopped parsley, a bit of oregano, 3 or 4 pressed garlic cloves, ground pepper, a bit of sweet paprika, white wine (or even sherry, which gives a really nice taste) and finally olive oil. Mix well. Cover with transparent film and let rest in the fridge for at least one day.

Next day wait until the pan is hot and add the pork loin. Move with some frequency and cook it for about 12 to 14 minutes until it gets a golden look.

    Love this blog! As a cook, I love your recipes, but as a filmmaker, I really appreciate the production value of your video. It looks phenomenal, plus it helps a lot with the actual cooking – I know I always do better with a visual. 🙂

      Thanks Rachel!

      Glad to see you like my blog and recipes. That’s right, supporting the recipes with videos makes them easier to understand. As said in Spain: an image explains more than 1.000 words :). If you specially like some recipes I would appreciate if you share them with your friends 🙂
