We cooked our pork and potato slices on a char-grill for that lovely smoky flavour and attractive griddle markings, but if you prefer, simply arrange the potatoes in a single layer on a baking tray and bake them at 180˚C for 10–15 minutes. As an alternative to grilled potatoes, you can serve mashed or baked jacket potatoes.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g pork fillets, trimmed
2 teaspoons olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
4 potatoes, peeled and thickly sliced
spray oil
radicchio and green salad with low-fat dressing, to serve

Dressing

Quantity Ingredient
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon oregano, roughly chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed

Method

  1. Preheat a char-grill pan to medium. Brush the pork fillets with oil and sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Char-grill the pork for 8–10 minutes on each side until cooked through. Rest, covered, for 5 minutes.
  3. Spray the potato slices with a little oil. Cook on the char-grill for 4–5 minutes each side until golden and crisp.
  4. To make the dressing combine the vinegar, maple syrup, oregano and garlic in a small jug and whisk together well.
  5. To serve, slice the pork fillets thickly and arrange on plates with the grilled potatoes and salad. Drizzle over the dressing and eat straight away.

Super ingredient: Radicchio

  • Radicchio, a red-leafed Italian chicory, has a bitter taste that works well with strong flavours like duck or venison. Its blue-purple colour comes from anthocyanins, natural plant antioxidants that can kill off harmful bacteria. Anthocyanins are also found in red grapes, blueberries, cranberries and beetroot. Like all lettuces, you’ll get plenty of vitamin C, folate and vitamin B1, three heat-sensitive vitamins, which are hard to get.
