Chuleta Valluna, Lomo de Cerdo apanado or empanizado is one of the most popular dishes in Colombian Restaurants.This Pork dish is a traditional dish from El Valle department of Colombia.
Chuleta Valluna it is usually served with beans and rice or just with salad, yuca, potatoes or plantains on the side. I usually leave the meat in the marinade overnight. The flavor is excellent and because the meat is so thin, it cooks very quickly.
