    Pork in pear sauce with mashed swede

    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 4


    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
    2 tsp Dijon mustard
    ½ x 25g pack chives, chopped 


    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.

    3. Cut 1 pear into 1cm pieces. Mix the gravy paste and mustard with 500ml boiling water. Add to the pan with the diced pear, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Mash the pear into the sauce. Return the pork and any juices to the sauce.

    4. Slice the remaining pear and add to the pan. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through with no pink meat. Stir in the chives. Serve with the mashed swede
