How to cook

1. Place the pork in a large mixing bowl.  Add the extra virgin olive oil, garlic, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper.  Mix well making sure that each pork cube is completely coated.

 2. On a flat surface, place a large piece of aluminum foil and on top a large piece of parchment paper (repeat for all servings).  Divide the pork in 8 portions.  Place each serving on the parchment paper.  Sprinkle your garlic on the top. 

 3. Divide your wedge potatoes in 8 portions.  Add a few potatoes next to the pork, 1 slice of each pepper on top of the meat, 2-3 cherry tomatoes, 1 teaspoon of yoghurt(optional),  4 cubes of Graviera cheese half of 1 onion and then salt & pepper.  Drizzle a small bit of Greek extra virgin olive oil and wrap tightly the aluminum foil.

 4. Place all the servings in an oval braiser with lid or rectangular baking dish.  Add a small amount of water in the baking dish to prevent the foil from burning at the bottom of the dish.  Place in a preheated 350F(175C) degree oven for 2 ½ hours.

 5. Let it cook for 10 minutes before serving.
