The star of the show here is the cheesy garlicy Dauphinois Potato – wow! What an incredible invention, that hits all the right notes in your palette. The pork fillet is tender, succulent and meaty, with the comforting vibes coming from the healthy fats. Oh, and it’s super cheap – only £2.50 for a whole fillet. Throw on some sautéed red onions, herbs and apple sauce, and voila! But we can do better… the apple-infused leeks bring a slight sweet and hearty dimension to the plate. Restaurant grade dining, in the easy comfort of your home. You’ll be deeply satisfied after this plate. 😋
For a smaller portion, drop 200g Pork Fillet and reduce the Dauphinois ingredients as such – 200g Potatoes, 20ml Double Cream, 15g Cheese and 10g Garlic Butter. This would save you 435 calories, without compromising on the flavours or nutritional goodness whatsoever.. Enjoy!
