Butter Poached Pork

Prep Time
Cook Time
By butter-poaching the pork fillet in a sandwich bag it cooks right through without any risk of over cooking or drying out. Served with awesome chunky chips and chicory braised briefly in a sweet cider makes this the ultimate combo!

Cooking Recipe

2 large potatoes
1 pork fillet, trimmed
4 tbsp butter
a few sprigs of thyme
2 heads of chicory
1 cooking apple
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1 tbsp of brown sugar
cider (100ml)

You'll also need:
zip lock bag

Preheat an oven to 180°C and boil a big pan of water.

Wash the potatoes and cut into chunky steak cut chips.

Arrange on a baking tray, not overlapping and drizzle with a little oil, salt and pepper.

Bake for 40 minutes, turning them over half way through.

Stick the trimmed pork fillet into the zip lock bag with the thyme and half the butter.

Seal the bag with as little air inside as possible.

Place the bag in the gently simmering water and cook for 25 minutes.

Trim the chicory into individual leaves and slice the apple into wedges.

Melt the remaining butter in a pan and place in the chicory leaves and apple.

Sprinkle over the sugar and a little salt.

Pour the cider into the pan. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes until the leaves soften.

Pull the pork out of the bag and sear in a hot, oiled pan until golden and crisp.

Allow the pork to rest on a warm plate for 2 minutes before slicing.

Serve the pork with the braised chicory and apple along with a squeeze of lemon juice and the hot baked steak chips.
