Making the most of local produce
Winter still has us in its grasp and warming, comforting food is something that really lifts the spirits. With this in mind, we’re sharing one of our favourite Somerset recipes which can be made using our wonderful local produce.
Somerset-style Pork Fillet:
750g pork fillet
1 onion, sliced
100g mushrooms, sliced
50g butter (or olive oil)
25g plain flour, seasoned with salt and pepper
450ml local cider ( plus extra to enjoy with your meal )
2 tablespoons double cream
Trim the pork fillet and cut into 50g slices, use a rolling pin to flatten into medallions. Dip into the sea-soned flour.
Melt the butter (or oil) in a deep frying pan. Fry the pork slices for a few minutes on each side until golden and cooked. Keep in a warm place.
Gently fry the sliced onion until softened, add the sliced mushrooms and saute for a few minutes. Stir in remaining flour and gradually stir in the cider to make a thickish sauce.
Bring to the boil, return the pork to the pan and reduce to a simmer and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Check the seasoning and stir in the cream and parsley before serving with delicious seasonal local veg.
Treat yourself and support our businesses and producers by shopping local.
