    Hi all

    Thought I would post a few of my own recipes that I've tried and pointed. If you try them, do let me know if you like them:


    Normandy Pork Fillet - 5pp (my working out)
    Recipe
    Spray of oil
    200g pork fillet cut into medallions or lices about 1cm thick and flattened a little with a meat mallet
    1/2 apple
    1 shallot
    1 clove garlic
    125ml dry cider
    2tblspns half fat creme fraiche

    Heat the oil in non stick frying pan. Fry the pork pieces on both sides until they are cooked through. May need to be done in batches.
    Once the pork is cooked, set aside then add shallot and apple to the pan. Cook until golden. Add the garlic. Cook until it smells fragrant. Add the cider - bubble up hard for 2-3 mins to reduce the liquid. Turn down the heat and add the creme fraiche, stirring well. Add the pork to the sauce, coating it well and season. Serve!

    Cant wait to try the pork dish, it sound delicous. I tend to be very boring with my dinners and i know i shouldnt be. I feel when im on a diet i should be eating tasteless diet foods but im going to try and incorporate a bit more variety into my diet and start cooking a bit more. Trouble is by the time you get home at nite after work your so hungry you just want something dead quick.
