The pork fillet is the most expensive and high quality kind of pork you can buy; so it makes sense to want to get the most out of it that you possibly can. Think of it as the equivalent to a quality piece of beef – you wouldn’t want to waste that either. There are lots of different ways you can cook your pork, and plenty of weird and wonderful things you can pair with it to enhance the flavor. Read on for some great ideas:
Cook With Apple and Cider
Apple and cider goes very well with pork. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to you! By cooking the pork with apple and cider, you’ll enhance the flavor tremendously. You can even make a sauce using the juices created afterwards to make a creamy yet delicious dish. You can serve this with anything you like, but I think roasted potatoes are the best side dish.
Don’t Overcook it
As this meat is so juicy and tender, it can be too easy to overcook it and dry it out. Make sure you pop it in a preheated oven for 20 minutes maximum – usually 15 will suffice. But first, you need to make sure that you…
Searing the pork has so many benefits. You’ll keep in all of the delicious juices and flavor this way. Use a very hot pan to sear it and make it a nice golden brown, before popping it into the oven as explained before. This way, you’ll have delicious, juicy pork to be proud of.
Stuff it to Keep it Moist
If you like, you can stuff the pork fillet with delicious ingredients to enhance the flavor and keep it nice and moist. Some great ingredients include prunes, apples, mushrooms, and blue cheese. However, you can only really do this if you’re cooking a whole joint. You could even add stock or cider to keep the juices in too.
Try a Variety of Interesting Ingredients
Although there’s the standard ingredients that almost everybody knows and loves, there are a variety of little known things you can use with your pork fillet. For example, cherries and onions go surprisingly well. Who would have thought it? Mustard and coriander is another combination that really enhances the flavor. If you fancy something a little Asian tasting, then why not go for a peanut sauce? There are so many things you can do with a pork fillet! If you need a lunch dish, you could even create a barbecue pulled pork bap with lots of salad and mayonnaise.
The only limit to what you do with your pork fillet is your imagination. Search the internet and you’ll come across plenty of amazing recipes and tips that will help you to get the most out of this luxurious piece of meat. Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay, and Heston Blumenthal all have great recipes.
