Introduction

A simple dish, the sauce works well with pork chops or with beef too. Simple and fast as you can easily do the side dishes while the meat sits in the oven and, once it's out, rests for a while so the juices redistribute.

Method

  • Brown the pork fillet in a little butter or oil (season the meat with salt and pepper first).
  • Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 180°C Bung the pan in the oven and leave it there for around 15-20 minutes until the meat is done.
  • Use that time to boil some tatties and make yourself a simple salad with vinaigrette sauce.
  • Take the meat out of the pan and allow it to rest on a plate under some tin foil.
  • Deglaze the pan with some wine or water, stir in the mustard and allow the liquid to reduce. If you like, thicken it with a few cubes of cold butter or use some cornstarch.
  • Return your meat to the pan and serve. Sometimes I like to add a splash of cream right at the end, it gives a "rounder" finish to the sauce. Delicious with boiled potatoes, pasta... Whatever you fancy
