1 medium swede, diced
Knob butter
1 tbsp oil
1 pork fillet (approx 500g), cut into 8 slices
2 ripe Conference pears, peeled and cored
50g sachet Bisto Rich Roast Chicken Gravy Paste,
or 2 x 28g Knorr Chicken Gravy Pots

Method

1. Cook the swede in boiling water for 20-25 minutes, or until tender. Drain, mash with the butter and season.

2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan. Flatten the pork slices with the palm of your hand, and fry for 5 minutes, turning once. Remove and set aside.
