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

  • 250g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 fat garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 300ml vegetable stock


  1. Coat the pork: Cut the pork diagonally into finger-thick slices. Tip the flour and rosemary into a large plastic food bag, add some salt and pepper and the pork, and toss until the meat is well coated.

  2. Start cooking: Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large wide frying pan. Add the pork and fry for about 3-4 minutes until nicely browned on both sides, turning once. Remove from the pan.

  3. Fry the mushrooms: Heat the remaining oil in the pan, tip in the mushrooms and fry until they start to soften, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle in the garlic and return the pork to the pan with any flour left in the bag. Stir in the stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes or until the pork is cooked.

Quick, easy and tasty. I always reduce the amount of rosemary and sometimes the stock depending what I am serving it with.

Always add some creme fraiche at end of cooking for a nicer looking creamy sauce.

This couldn't have been quicker! All you need is a sharp knife to slice the pork and to make even less work for myself I bought pre sliced mushrooms. I only used 1 teaspoon of rosemary and still I found the taste of it a little overpowering. Next time I think I will try thyme or maybe Italian seasoning. I served it over rice and there was ample sauce to go with it.Overall a good, quick recipe the whole family enjoyed!

Quick and easy. Used sage instead of rosemary and it was delicious. Served with noodles.

Wonderfully tasty and so easy! Easily made suitable for coeliacs by using gluten free stock and flour. Will try with wine next time.

Delicious and so easy. As suggested below, I replaced half the stock with red wine to make the sauce a bit more flavoursome and added a red onion.

Nice, easy, quick recipe for a mid week meal I thought. Next time I will use fresh rosemary and maybe add some tarragon. I used 50:50 red wine:stock and I added another 1/4 tbsp of flour. I let the red wine bubble away first to get rid of the alcohol then added the stock. I ended up with quite a thick gravy.

Just so you know, letting it bubble won't really remove the alcohol.

Hello, Would this work with veal shoulder too? Thanks in advance.
