Mediterranean Pork Fillet Recipe

Tender Pork Fillet Recipe Photo

Pork Fillet – Tenderloin of Pork

This Pork Fillet Recipe is straight from the Spanish Mediterranean and is a personal favorite of both of us specially Pam. It looks a bit complicated, but it’s really easy to prepare and worth the little bit of effort. The tender pork is trimmed of all fat and sinew – rolled in the marinade and seared in the pan. Then it’s popped into the oven for fifteen minutes while you make the sauce.
The combination of tender meat, rich red wine and double mushroom sauce, is just to Die For.
