Chancho a la Chilena is a rustic dish that’s usually made to celebrate Chile’s independence on September 18.
It’s made with pork ribs or loin that’s marinated with a mixture made in a stone mortar and pestle so it can have a good consistency. Then it is roasted or cooked on the grill, and it’s served with a traditional sauce called pebre. The pork is served in round slices with a side of papas panaderas, sopapillas–a delicious fried bread similar to Mexican buñuelos–with a serving of the ever-present sauce. Some make it with a variation of a chimichurri sauce.
