Magra Con Tomate Recipe from Murcia

Magra con tomate is pork cooked in a tomato sauce. It is one of those lifelong dishes that you can find in any Spanish bar and that the hungriest usually consume at mid-morning with a few slices of bread and a glass of wine or beer, to fill the stomach. Here´s how to make this easy one pot recipe full of flavour at home:

INGREDIENTS (serves 2)

  • a couple of pork chops, cut into half inch pieces
  • 2 standard sized cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 medium roasted red peppers, finely diced
  • 1 medium green pepper, finely diced
  • 1 large onion, finely diced

  • Tablespoon or two of smoky paprika
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1/2 glass of red or white wine (whichever you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • Sprinkle of salt & pepper


  1. Pop the oil into your pan and bring up to a medium to high heat
  2. Throw in the diced pork, and cook until browned all over.
  3. Remove the pork to one side, but leave as much of the oil in the pan as you can
  4. Throw in the onion, and the two types of pepper
  5. Turn the heat down almost immediately, and wait until the vegetables are almost translucent and cooked through
  6. Add the garlic, stir well and cook for a couple more minutes
