Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 150 g pork fillet (half of 1 fillet
  • sliced lengthwise)
  • 100g feta cheese (half a pack)

Method

  • Cut the pork fillet into squares
  • Spread the pork fillet pieces evenly on a chopping board and cover with a silicone baking mat (or clingfilm) and bash flat with a rolling pin
  • Measure out your feta cheese and put the pack back in the fridge - it's very easy to get the cheese cross-contaminated in preparing a recipe like this.
  • Meanwhile gently fry the onions in a little olive oil.
  • Roughly distribute the cheese on the flattened pork squares - you don't have to be that neat
  • the cocktail sticks will save the day!
  • Shake dried oregano and black pepper over the cheese.
  • Roll up each square in a sheet of prosciutto (or bacon) and pin with a cocktail stick.
  • Leaving the onions in th epan
  • place each pice of pork in the pan making sure it contacts the base of the pan.
  • Pan-fry for about 5 minutes.
  • Tun over and fry the other side for a further 5 minutes.
  • Pick the thickest piece of pork to make sure it's properly cooked.
  • Serve!
