The great freezer transfer disgorged a box of pork fillets, so I though I’d cook one last night.
I cut it into thin strips, and fried it up in some olive oil, then set it aside. Then into the pan went a big knob of butter, a few sliced mushrooms, a yellow pepper deseeded and cut into strips, and two elderly leeks, chopped into rounds. Fried them down a bit, while I rummaged in what’s left of the herb garden for some sage.
Finely chopped the sage and threw it in, together with about 3/4 of a mug of good apple juice. I recommend you keep apple juice in your store cupboard – it makes a really nice change from stock or wine for cooking.
Seasoned with salt and black pepper, put a lid on it, and set it over a low heat. I guess it had about 20 minutes in all, but the pork was well cooked before I got to this stage – I’m a bit paranoid about cooking pork well.
We had a bowl of cooked spuds in the fridge, which had been destined for an Easter fry up breakfast which never materialised. So I cut them up, and fried them in olive oil and butter to go with the pork.
