- Pork fillets (2 to three fillets per person, depending on the size)
- 40 grams butter per person
- 1 tablespoon garlic pate` per person
- salt and pepper
- rosemary, dry or fresh
- half a lemon per person
- 1 to 2 tablespoons all purpose flour (depending on the amount of meat)
- 2 medium potatoes per person
- high quality extra virgin olive oil
Start by washing and slicing the potatoes thinly. Layer them on an oven dish, using some parchment paper if you’d like. Season with salt, pepper and drizzle plenty of olive oil. Place in the oven to cook.
While the potatoes are cooking in the oven, you can focus on preparing the pork fillets.
Start by placing the flour on a plate and coating each side of every fillet with the flour until evenly coated.
Next, place a large pan on your hob or gas stove, and melt the butter. Add the garlic pate` and mix well.
Add the pork fillets, and cook for a few minutes on one side. Then flip and leave to cook on the other side.
Season with salt and plenty black pepper.
Squeeze the juice of a lemon in the pan, and mix well.
Finally, sprinkle the rosemary on top of the meat.
Take the potatoes out of the oven. By now they should be nice and crispy.
And serve them aside your pork fillets. Don’t forget to take a spoon of the sauce leftovers and place it on top of your meat.
If you are vegetarian, feel free to omit the meat and cook this same lemony garlic sauce to cover your vegetables and potatoes. This sauce also complements bruschetta and fish.
