Maple Garlic Marinated Pork Fillet


Pork fillet is such an easy dinner. You can BBQ or bake in the oven. Just rest, and carve and one fillet can feed 3 people easily (4 if you are behaving yourself). This Maple Garlic Marinated Pork Fillet is pretty easy but you can get creative. I find asian marinades work well, or wine + mustard, cider, apples … whatever takes your fancy.

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon sesame oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

freshly ground black pepper to taste

120ml maple syrup

120ml chicken/pork stock/broth

675g pork fillet

 

METHOD

Combine mustard, sesame oil, garlic, black pepper, broth and maple syrup. Place pork in a shallow dish and coat thoroughly with marinade. Cover, then chill in the fridge at least eight hours, or overnight.
Preheat barbecue for medium-low heat.
Remove pork from marinade and set aside. Transfer remaining marinade to a small saucepan, and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes.
Brush barbecue grate with oil and place meat on grate. Cook pork, basting with reserved marinade, for approximately 15 to 25 minutes, or until pork is no longer pink.
Note:
You could also roast the pork fillets in the oven for 45 minutes at 190 degrees C, or until no longer pink in the centre.

Rest the pork and slice – serving with salad/greens and potatoes
