Step by step instructions


  • Add oil to a frying pan and slowly fry the onion and red pepper cut into julienne strips.
  • When they are done, removed from the heat and allow the oil in the pan to cool enough to be able to add a teaspoon of sweet paprika without burning it.
  • Drain the sauce and reserve 100 g of oil to make the dough.
  • In the same pan, fry the previously marinated pork loin fillets with garlic salt. Add them to the fried vegetables. Set aside.


  • Put half a kilo of flour in a bowl and make a hole in the center.
  • Inside, add the warm water, 1 tsp of salt, the oil used to prepare the filling, the wine and the crumbled yeast.
  • Mix and work well until the dough comes off easily from your hands.
  • Form a ball. Cover with a cloth and let it rest for 20 minutes.

DOUGH (in Thermomix)

  • Put 150 g of water, 100 g of the oil from the sauce, 50 g of wine and 20 g of yeast in the glass.
  • Program: 1 minute / 40ºC / Speed 2
  • Add the flour and salt and program 2 minutes / bread mode.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and knead by hand to form a ball. Cover it and let it rest for 20 minutes.


  • Cut the dough into 2 halves. Shape each one of them into rectangles the size of the oven dish.
  • In a baking tray previously greased with oil and floured, (or covered with greaseproof paper) place one of the dough halves and the filling on it.
  • Cover with the other half and seal by the edges by folding the lower part over the upper one, in which a hole should be made in the center as a chimney.
  • With the remains of the dough you can make some decorations.
  • Paint with beaten egg and put in the oven, with heat above and below, at 200º for 30 minutes.
