In Greece there is a kind of dish which they call “tigania”. Basically fried meat combined with some sauce. Any fried combination of meat in Greece is called like that and is usually dish that people take in combination with others as “mezedes”,
Its not difficult but frying pork in combination with other spices always brings special flavors. I have tried various combination in the past and always i got something different.
For this specific one i read how nice it was to combine it with leaks as it is something that is done widely in Greece. (trust me i checked forums where Greek mothers are discussing there cooking secrets)
To be honest think its easy to make different variations and its not something really difficult or uncommon nevertheless oregano gives it a special flavor while you can mix it with greek feta cheese or other spices like thyme.
Its up to you
