4 Lean pork loin or leg steaks
500g premade chilled bought Puff pastry
4 Slices black pudding (approx 25g (1oz) per slice)
Fresh sage leaves
100g (4oz) Blackberries or other seasonal soft berries
30ml (2tbsp) Soft brown sugar
Preheat oven to Gas Mark 5, 190oC, 375oF.
Roll out pastry thinly and cut into 4, approx 18cm squares.
Trim the fat off the steak and place in the middle of the square of pastry.
Season and top with 2 sage leaves and a slice of black pudding.
Brush outer edges of pastry with milk and fold over the 4 corners to create a ‘rough’ envelope. Brush all over with milk and bake in hot oven until pastry is well risen and golden, approx 30 minutes.
Make Blackberry Sauce: Heat together in a small pan the blackberries, sugar and spice. Gently simmer for 5 minutes until fruit is slightly broken down and syrupy.
Serve the parcels with the blackberry sauce, and a pile of seasonal greens. Also great cold for an autumn picnic or snack.
