Vinha d'alhos is a traditional Portuguese marinade used to flavor meats, particularly pork. The marinade is typically made with garlic, wine vinegar, salt, pepper, bay leaves, and sometimes other spices and herbs such as paprika, cloves, and thyme.
To prepare the dish, the meat is marinated in the vinha d'alhos for several hours or overnight before being roasted or grilled. The marinade helps to tenderize the meat and infuse it with flavor.
Vinha d'alhos has its origins in the Portuguese island of Madeira, but it is now a popular dish throughout Portugal and in Portuguese communities around the world. It is often served as part of a festive meal, such as Christmas or Easter, and is a staple at traditional Portuguese feasts and celebrations.
