  • 2 pork fillet, about 350g/12oz each
  • 250g black pudding, skinned and cut into slices
  • 12 thin rashers streaky bacon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • 300g rhubarb, cut into 5cm lengths on the diagonal



    Botanically, rhubarb is a vegetable (it's related to sorrel and dock) but its thick, fleshy…

  • 200ml vegetable stock
  • 2 rounded tbsp crème fraîche


  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Split the pork fillets lengthwise almost in half and open out like a book. Bash with a rolling pin to flatten, then sprinkle on all sides with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Fill the pork with the black pudding, folding the meat back over it to enclose it.

  2. Stretch the bacon rashers with the back of a knife, then wrap around the pork fillets, tucking the ends under the pork where possible. Transfer to a large roasting tin, drizzle with the oil, then roast for 30 mins.

  3. Meanwhile, heat the honey in a pan, then toss the rhubarb in the honey. Add to the roasting tin, then return to the oven for 10-12 more mins until the rhubarb is tender and the bacon nicely browned. Transfer the pork and rhubarb to a warm plate and keep warm while you make the sauce.

  4. Set the tin on the hob and add the stock. Bring to the boil, stirring to scrape all the pan juices from the base of the tin. Bubble for a few mins, then stir in the crème fraîche and whisk until it has dissolved into the sauce. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.

  5. Cut the pork into slices and serve with the rhubarb and a little sauce poured over. Serve the remaining sauce separately.

Just love this recipe, so simple, so delicious

This really good, very simple and quick to prepare. I wasn't sure the rhubarb would cook in just 10 minutes but it did.

A real meat lovers dish - my dad and husband loved this.

Really nice and easy to do. Think 30 + 12 minutes is too long though. Maybe 35 in total would be long enough. I added some lemon zest along with the stuffing. Leftovers were great the next day in tortillas with some salad and mayo.

The pork, black pudding and bacon are fabulous but the rhubarb was a bit overpowering and not to everyone's taste. I had some plum sauce left over from a roast duck meal and it was nicer - less acidic and a better texture with the lovely pork.

Lovely dish & very very easy to make yet looks so impressive ! Excellent for dinner party.

This is a lovely meal, the rhubarb goes very well with the pork & blackpudding. Very easy to make and looks lovely when on the plate, this is one of these meals that it's easy to get the presentation right :)

I served this with little new potatoes in butter.

First time I made this it was for a Scottish themed dinner party & I substituted black pudding for haggis (McSweens) and it worked perfectly - everyone loved it and the rhubarb gave a brilliant sharp twist. I'm making it again tonight for my daughter's 30th birthday dinner - it's so good it has to be kept for special occasions - simple but very impressive!

Loved this one, but between the bacon and the black pudding it didn't need any more salt. Next time just ppper and lemon juice, I think. Even nicer cold.

Really good mix of flavours and even better cold the day after , I served it to my uncle (a VERY fussy eater ) and he even loved it, just goes to show how good this recipe really is
I will DEFINITELY be making this again !!

Made this for husband for dinner and got lots of yum sounds and no conversation for the rest of the meal so yes it is a good recipe!

This was delicious and was very popular with the family. I agree with the others who said that you didn't need all the black pudding - I could only fit about half of what was recommended into the pork, but it was just right. I used cocktail sticks to hold the pork together once stuffed. I didn't make the rhubarb sauce either - just made a creamy mustard sauce with sherry, dijon mustard, stock, single cream and some of the cooking juices. Will definitely be making this dish again.

Served with red cabbage, broccolli and creamy mixed root mash. Looked and tasted fantastic.

I read the comment from smallishtree with interest, as I was a bit confused about the timing, but I thought that was only me! Should it be the 30 mins then another 10-12 mins added? I'm always a bit wary about undercooking pork, so I have added the 12 mins on to the 30. Am making it at the moment and really looking forward to eating it.

Brilliant recipe! I've made it on numerous occasions and it works every time. Definitely one for my recipe folder.

Fantastic dish, quick and easy. I followed the recipe but substituted blood orange marmalade (Aldi) for honey. Absolutely delicious......used the left over roasted rhubarb as a chutney. Will definately make again.

The pork was lovely, really tasty, didn't make the roasted rhubard so I suppose I was cheating a bit. Just fancied the pork and knew my hubby wouldn't like the rhubarb. Will make it again.

Absolutely delicious, and so simple to make. We made it with apple pieces instead of the rhubarb, and it worked brilliantly! I also used chicken stock instead of the vegetable stock for the sauce, because I generally prefer the taste, and it was delicious! I'm planning on making it again for our next dinner party, but fancy-ing it up a bit more by serving it with mustard mash shaped in a pastry ring with the sliced pork around the edges and apple slices elegantly arranged!


Questions (1)

auldreekie1's picture

wondering why the bacon didn't crisp up as much as I'd hoped? Didn't want to increase time or temp in case the pork became dry.
Any advice appreciated!
