Rolled pork fillet with ham

served with a jus, oven-baked vegetables, and potato and garden pea mash

Rolled pork fillet with ham

Quickly sear the pork fillet over a high heat. Season with salt and pepper, then leave to cool.

Spread the slices of ham out.

Dice the chicken meat and quickly mix with the egg, cream and seasoning.

Spread the stuffing on the ham evenly and place the fillet on top of the stuffing. Then roll it all in and fix it with caul fat.

Heat the wrapped pork fillet in the oven at 80°C (fan oven) until its internal temperature reaches 60°C.

Before serving, sear the meat again in a frying pan to obtain a crisp outer surface. Slice and serve.

Veal jus

Preheat the oven to 220°C (200°C fan oven). Mix the bones and oil together in a deep pan. Then cook in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes, mixing regularly using a wooden spoon.

Wash, dry, peel and cut the vegetables up into chunks, add them to the roasted bones, and leave to cook for a further 30 minutes.



Put the bones and vegetables in a pan with the tomato concentrate and sweat the mix for about 2 minutes. Then deglaze with the red wine, using a wooden spoon to scrape up the bits, and reduce by half.

Add the port and reduce by half. Then add the peppercorns, the bay leaves, and 2 litres of cold water. Bring up to boil, then turn down the heat and leave to simmer gently.

After 3 hours, strain the mixture into another pan. Reduce to about 200 ml and season with fine sea salt.

Oven-baked vegetables

Wash and clean the vegetables.

Halve the tomatoes and slice the courgettes and aubergines (not too thinly); slice the onions thinly lengthwise and cut the pepper into strips.

Preparation and cooking time: 2 hours


Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper; pile on the vegetables and season with salt and pepper.

Mix the olive oil with the herbs and scatter evenly over the vegetables, then cook in a preheated oven (200°C) for about 15 minutes.

Potato and garden pea mash

Cook the potatoes in salted water until soft (about 30 minutes), then drain.

Cook the garden peas in a separate pan, until they are tender.

Wash the mint; separate the leaves from the stems and chop them.

Heat the milk and melt the butter in it. Mash the potatoes and the peas, then combine with the milk and butter mixture to make a creamy puree.

Add the finely chopped mint and the lemon zest. Season with salt, pepper, nutmeg and lemon juice.

Enjoy your meal!
