Ingredients

  • 10g dried porcini mushrooms, soaked for 30 mins in mugful of boiling water (don't throw away the liquid!)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 pork loin steaks, trimmed of fat, or pork medallions
  • Knob butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 250g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 300ml crème fraiche
  • freshly chopped parsley

Method

1

Soak the porcini mushrooms in half a mugful of boiling water and set aside.

2

Heat a heavy bottom frying pan. Add a little oil. Season the steaks. Fry for about 5 or 6 mins on each side if they are thick like mine, less if they are thin (3 mins each side), adding a knob of butter to add flavour too.

3

Remove and set to one side to rest. Remove the mushrooms and reserve liquid and finely chopped.

4

Add onion and garlic to pan and soften for 5 mins. Add the mushrooms and porcinis too. Stir for a few minutes to get some colour and soften.

5

Tip in the ¾ of the porcini liquid but not the last bit in the bowl.

6

increase the heat and add the crème fraiche. Heat through, season to taste. Add the parsley. Now pop the pork steaks back in and warm through for a minute.

7

Serve with brown rice and green beans.
