Went out for a walk in the morning and found a bookshop selling ALL books at £2! Gotta love the UK for that!!!

Bought 4 cooking books and will start reading them as soon as my dissertation first draft is ready.

Today’s dish is meat based but still fresh enough to have in a summer day.

Pork with Orange Sauce (serves 2)
  • 200 g of pork fillet
  • 1/2 orange
  • 3 tbsp of white wine
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/4 red chilli
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1/4 of a bunch of chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper
  1. Get a tender piece of pork fillet. Cut it into thick slices and put it in a bowl.

  2. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Cover the meat with the orange juice, the white wine, the sliced garlic and the sliced chilli. Let it rest for 30 minutes.IMG_5594
  3. Grease a non-stick frying pan with the olive oil and cook the meat on it. Reserve the sauce in which the meat was in.
  4. Let the meat cook in low fire making sure it cooks evenly. If the meat releases a big quantity of “juices” while cooking, drain them into the reserved orange and wine sauce.
  5. When the meat is cooked, take it from the frying pan into the dish in which it will be served.IMG_5666
  6. Using the same frying pan, cook the reserved sauce with the chopped parsley in low fire for approximately 3-5 minutes. The sauce won’t get thick but the flavours will be enhanced and the alcohol will evaporate.
  7. Serve the meat topped with the orange sauce, a good salad (suggestion under) and some wild rice.IMG_5716
