Method

  1. Season the pork, then lay a slice of prosciutto on each and secure with a cocktail stick. Put the carrots into a pan with a small glass of water, then season if you like. Bring to the boil, cover and cook for 5 mins, then add the beans and leeks. Give everything a stir and cook, covered, for 5 mins more.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the pork and fry quickly for 2-3 mins on each side until cooked. Stir the crème fraîche into the vegetables until it is warmed through, then serve alongside the pork.

This was very quick, very easy, and surprisingly tasty - clean plates all round. Agree with previous, don't need cocktail sticks, and I also added a touch of wholegrain mustard to the veg

Have made this several times now. No need for cocktail sticks, just shove the pork in the pan and then drape the prosciutto over it. Be brave when you turn it over - don't hang around - and they don't come apart. I also added mustard to the creme fraiche and very glad I did! Really great and part of my standard repertoire!

Made this for supper last night and it was quick and easy, I could not get pork escalopes so used loin steaks and bashed them out with a rolling pin before adding the proscuitto

Very nice, the prosciutto kept the pork nice and juicy. Probably only 1 or maybe 2 tbsp of creme fraiche is needed, I used 3 and it made the veg a bit watery.

This was delicious. I added a bit of dijon mustard to the veg with the creme fraiche which went well with the pork - will do this dish again.
