Had this for lunch today and really enjoyed it. Easy, tastey and hardly any washing up. Exactly what I was looking for. Followed recipe almost to the letter except that I rolled the pork in a mixture of fennel seeds, sage, thyme, salt & fresh ground black pepper in stead of pork seasoning or italian herbs. It's highly likely that I'll do this again.

I took note of all messages and with this I followed what felt right for my families tastes. Parsnips, sweet potato, carrots, potatoes with whole shallots and courgette made this a full and wholesome meal in a pan. I chose to use a mix of oregano, Thyme and sage. I reduced the amount of liquid used whilst cooking the meat with the veg then removed the veg before adding the remaining stock and reduced it in the pan further. Fantastic flavour family enjoyed this very much.

Have been on the hunt for a pork fillet recipe for a while and this has been best one I've found so far, as it's so versatile. Agree with other comments that it's better to cook veg a bit longer (50 mins) and the pork less (30 mins). Used what veg I had - carrots and sweet potato - and a dessert apple rather than bramley and it was well received. Made a bit of coucous as an accompaniment to soak up the juice which worked very well.

This was very successful and I will definitely do it again. Got pork fillet on offer so only £3 for piece just under 500g so very economical too. Bearing in mind previous comments cooked the veg first at 200 degrees fan oven for about 12 minutes and then turned it down to 180, added the pork and cooked for 15 minutes, then added apple and stock (made with knorr jelly beef stock cube as per previous comment) and cooked another 15 minutes. Left to rest for 10 minutes and was perfect. Served with broccoli. We eat lots of veg so next time would do more veg and possibly add baby potatoes and make it completely one pot. Would also add more herbs and lemon zest to intensify the flavour of the crust. Lovely recipe which is easy to prepare but tastes as though more effort has been put in than actually has!

This was a really straightforward dish to make and turned out to be excellent, full of flavour and definitely worth making again. You could make it with any kind of vegetables, courgettes would probably work well.

Really tasty. I agree with shorter cooking times for the pork, I did the veg for 20mins then added the pork & apple for 30mins. I used a beef stock (jelly) and the gravy was rich and thick. Left the pork to rest for 10 mins - tender and juicy!

Great recipe. The only different thing I did was to coat the onions in a little more olive oil, they burned quicker than the other vegetables. Also I had to use carrots instead of parsnips - I've never seen a parsnip in a grocery store here.

This is really really delicious and looks quite impressive when served as well. I made some mash to go with it but it wasn't really needed. It was just a complete meal on it's own. Really yum!
