Pork fillet in cider
Ingredients Serves 6
2 pork fillets with a combined weight of about 1.15kg, sliced into 1cm thick pieces
6 medium-sized leeks, sliced into 1cm thick pieces
4 good eating apples, peeled, cored and quartered, then cut in three
1 rounded tbsp flour
600ml dry cider
1 grating of nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4. In a wide ovenproof sauté pan fry the sliced leeks over a moderate heat for 7-8 minutes. Add the sliced apples, dust in the flour and cook for a couple of minutes before gradually stirring in the dry cider or unsweetened apple juice. When the sauce bubbles, add a pinch of salt, pepper and nutmeg.
In a frying pan pan, fry each slice of pork fillet on either side for a couple of minutes, removing them to the sauté pan with the leek and apple sauce when they are browned. Cover the pan, place in the oven and cook the pork fillets, leek and apple mixture for 40 minutes, then serve.
