Pour the wine and let it boil for 2-3 minutes. Add oregano, black and red ground pepper and water to cover everything, cover with a lid and let it boil for about half kour until the pork is cooked. Check now and then the water, and add boiling water if needed.

  3. lovely:D in the absence of oregano and tomato sauce, this would have passed off very much like a chinese stir fry of leek and pork.
