For the pork medallions:
Start by marinating the pork in all the ingredients except the lard. Next, heat the lard in a pan and brown off the medallions. Add the marinade and simmer until it reaches the desired consistency.

For the roast white beans:
Soak the beans in water overnight, they boil them in water until tender but firm. Set the water aside. Gently fry the onion and garlic in olive oil, adding the white wine, ground pepper, piripiri, tomato pulp and, if necessary, the cooking water from the beans. Cut the linguiça, bacon and pork belly, and add them to the mixture, leaving them to cook for 10 minutes. Add the beans and leave to cook for 5 minute more, to allow them to absorb the flavours. Finally, add the cinnamon, stir well and adjust the seasoning.

For the savoury rice:
Boil the chouriço, linguiça and alheira in water, removing the alheira first as it cooks faster than the others. Set the broth aside. Gently fry the onion in the olive oil, then add rice and the broth from cooking the sausages, and cook until the rice is almost ready. Finely chop the sausages and add to the rice. Blanch the cabbage and then arrange the rice within the cabbage leaves.
