Recipe Ingredients

500g pork cubed

1 large onion finely chopped

2 gloves of garlic grated

A bunch of coriander leaves

1 teaspoonful of oil

3 large tomatoes peeled and chopped

Salt to taste

Kachumbari Ingredients

2 tomatoes

½ medium onion

½ bunch dhania

Chilli (optional)

Lemon juice


Recipe Instructions

  • Place the chopped pork in a Sufuria or saucepan and place on medium heat.
  • Add a teaspoonful of cooking oil and fry the meat until it turns golden brown. This is to get rid of any unpleasant taste brought by pork fat.
  • Drain the excess oil into a container leaving only a half teaspoonful.
  • When all the juices have evaporated and the meat starts drying, add the chopped onions and stir for 2 more minutes.
  • Add tomatoes and seasoning, stir and cover to allow the tomatoes to cook.
  • Add in garlic and continue mixing for another 2 minutes.
  • Sprinkle some salt and Royco cubes and if you like chilies, this is the time to add some.
  • Add a half cupful of water and reduce heat. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes or until the meat is tender enough according to your liking.
  • Just before turning off the heat, add coriander.
  • Avoid overcooking pork because it is not a tough meat.
  • Mix the kachumbari ingredients in a separate bowl.
  • Turn the heat off and pour the kachumbari into the pork, stir but do not allow it to cook.

It has long been thought that pork needs to be cooked for a long time so as to kill parasitic worms. Well, that is a misconception. Another misconception about pork that people need to walk away from, is the fact that pink pork raises alarm. As a result, people have been consuming overcooked pork which is tough, dry and flavourless.

Kenyan pork goes well with ugali and kachumbari
