My mother (born 1931) and her mother, always used paprika (colorau), red wine, crushed pepper and lots of garlic when marinating pork steaks. The meat "bathed" in that sauce overnight. The smell was incredible, and the taste even more so! Next day, onto the barbecue. The best Bifanas you could sink your teeth into. My parents lived in a small town near Fatima. Perhaps the use of paprika is a regional thing?
